I keep up several blogs. Two at blogger.One that was inspired by a person that started a group or went by the name A.M.E.N. and it stands for Abortion Must End Now.The other is a general Catholic blog that i thought i would see what i could do with.
Then i decided to try Word Press (here)and make it a general,general blog but I’m Catholic so expect some entries having to deal with the Catholic faith.It goes with the territory.Now add to this myopera.com blog(basically political and personal)and finally one that i just started at Conservative Junction(basically politics as well). All my politics are influenced by my Catholic faith so you’re not going to find much daylight between the 2.
I blog as often as possible. The topic depends on what is weighing on my mind most at any given time.The topics come when they’re least expected. They may be short such as an image that catches my eye or it has a quote that is worth sharing. Or they may be long such as the entry on St Therese Benedicta(one of my favorite saints)and her feast day happened to be on Aug 9.
I try to keep up with Obama and politics. I am never going to take my eye off this guy. I get info then i will post it.
The LSM has given him a pass if not support him and offer his daily talking points. We have state run media. Thank God for the folks on the internet. It’s not always easy to verify the information but i try. i’d rather put it out there until i hear otherwise. We are not going to let Obama get away with murder.
My husband has his own set of health issues and fortunately we have a terrific aide. I wish i had more time to put into some of the entries but make do with the time available.Now if the menneire’s wasn’t kicking in with a vengeance i’m sure i’d devote some extra time to each blog. I’m just getting the hang of it too and reading far better blogs to see how they go about theirs. I’d be content with average and improving.
A final thought for the day are concerns i have with my family. This is a daily concern to endure.There isn’t a day that goes by that i don’t think about my parents especially mom since her death was more unexpected than dad’s. There is the broken relationship with my son and his kids. He’s a terrific person. I know he has some flaws but he’s done so well for himself and his family.I think he has been working on those flaws over the years.I think,like many of us,as we get older we take more stock of ourselves too. However,i say this without any bias at all. He’s got some good points in spite of all the odds he had against him.Speaking of flaws;can’t say much.i wrote the book.
I just wish we were talking.I do recall the thing he said most often to me. He always mentioned how he was nothing like me. I said that about my own mother when i was growing up.We were too much apart and not enough alike.
Now i’ve realized a couple things. One is that we’re not CLONES of our parents. On the other hand i find now that the values she and dad passed onto us kids were priceless.
The major realization is that our folks weren’t perfect but they tried as best they could. Finally, something a good friend of mine shared with me. She said that the 4th commandment states,Honor thy father and thy mother PERIOD. It doesn’t have conditions.
It doesn’t say if they’re perfect or flawless or the parents we dreamed about as kids.
It says HONOR,end of story. I would not have thought of that if my friend had not mentioned it to me. Her pseudonym was Storyteller Angel and Angel she was. I learned a lot of good things from her. She and my other good friend, nicknamed Portia, always had some wisdom to share and their advice was a life saver.I consider them my dearest friends.Portia and i considered ourselves sisters because our lives seemed to have so much in common. Both ladies are devout Catholics.
Portia was ready to roll on our new Catholic Pillar and Foundation as an admin.It’s a social network now. We had a message board(aka forum)years ago. Very proud of this one and hope people will join,Catholic or not.
You can customize your own page, blog,add photos,videos and info. Start a group.Chat.Finally we have some terrific topics in the forum that we’d love to have people comment on and open up discussions.
For today i have to check on my husband and if he’s doing ok then i need to get some bed rest.I will be back Monday.We are going to Confession (both of us)Wed and if we’re on our feet enough we will be attending Mass for the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary,a holy day. It will be the first time in years! i can only hope we feel well enough.We take communion at home on the First Fridays of every month and anointing of the sick ….as well as Confession if we ask.
Have a wonderful weekend.Hope your weather is as nice as ours. If you would, please remember us(and all shut ins) in your prayers at Mass.
