I mentioned awhile ago that when I couldn’t go to Mass I started listening to homilies on podcasts.
One of my favorite priests is Father Matt Pennington, out of San Luis Obispo CA, a place I never knew existed and after a little investigation seems like Utopia. He never fails to inspire me and guide me and comfort me-I listen in the car, or on a walk, or when I clean my kitchen floor.
Janey receivedthese paint markers for her birthday and she loves them. They feel like glue sticks, but the paint goes on dry and they are so fun to use-one of those easy things for a parent/child activity because they are fun for us too-even the boys were sitting around the table using them.
Another cute gift that we both 🙂 enjoyed, and is half price at Amazon right now-we loved it enough that I would buy it again for Christmas and keep a few on hand for birthday gifts.
I found this book randomly and it looked interesting. It’s an easy read, and very intriguing but also powerful in terms of “another side of the story”. (I am completely unfamiliar with most of what happened when it comes to this subject, so I read it without judgment.) I felt like it was a very honest, genuine, courageous book to write, from the perspective of Mark Madoff’s widow.
