A little Bit of This & a Little Bit of That

Words from Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty:

"The most important person on earth is a mother.  She cannot claim the honor of having built Notre Dame Cathedral.  She need not.  She has built something more magnificent than any cathedral--dwelling for an immortal soul, the tiny perfection of her baby's body.  The Angels have not been blessed with such a grace.  They cannot share in God's Creative miracle to bring new saints to heaven.  Only a human mother can.  Mothers are closer to God the Creator than any other creatures.  God joins forces with mothers in performing this act of creation.  What on God's good earth is more glorious than this: to be a mother?"

"The world needs us moms.  All women--even those women who are not biological or adoptive mothers--are endowed with the feminine gift of nurturing motherly love that our world needs so very much today"--Danielle Bean (Catholic Digest)

Just thought I would share those powerful words that touched my heart the other day when I read them.

We so enjoyed last week's beautiful weather.  Although this week has already been filled with much less sunshine, it's a nice little break from feeling the pressure to be outside to enjoy every second and I've been able to catch up on some much needed house cleaning that was thrown to the wayside :)

Just catching some rays
 Lunch time!
 Sally got to have an early birthday celebration with Lucy and Grandma at Grandma and George's new place! She had a sleepover and a trip to the movie theater!

Libby enjoyed extra time with Mom and Dad {and Emma, when she was awake}. Bedtime game outside!

Hitting up Saturday morning swimming lessons to get ready for the pool to open.  Libby's first time having lessons without a parent in the pool with her! Nice to get them both done at the same time! They did great!

Tea Party time!
 Emma learned how to roll over this weekend.  Her big sisters wanted to make sure that no matter which way she rolled, she would have a toy :)
 Her shirt says it all..."so totally cute!"
 "Woah!! Mom, did you see that? I just rolled over!"
 Cousins, enjoying their special time with Grandma.  Thank you Grandma!!

Happy Early Birthday to Nana, tomorrow!! We love you!!
