Wishing you a blessed Feast of the Assumption of the BVM
This morning is quite incomprehensibly lovely. The humidity is not at its normal, suffocating level for this time of year, and it is sunny and mostly clear. Gemma slept well last night for the first night in many, Bret has a day's work today after two weeks of nothing, and Dominic's appointment at the ENT went well--ears are healed and hearing is normal. Me? I just happen to be sick as a dog. The kids have relatively mild colds, and I got the full-blown grown-up version. I slept on the sofa last night so that Bret could at least get some sleep. I awoke at 11-something and had to take some effervescent cold remedy because of sinus pain--feels like my sinuses are packed with rock salt. Played solitaire til the medicine kicked in at 12:30.
Looks like Bret may be at Mass alone tonight, as he will likely go straight from the job. I offer prayers and congratulations to Br. James Walther, CPM, who made his first vows yesterday and to his family, and also to Br. Peter Joseph, OP and his family. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for their generosity in giving their lives to Christ for the sake of all men.
Now I think I am going to make a tall glass of lemonade and wash down a handful of vitamins. Hope your feast day is blessed.
