~ dear Angela and others who may be similarly situated,
~ the homeless, the hungry, and those who want for the basic necessities in life,
~ couples who are preparing to get married. December seems to be the new June around here :-)
~ my children and other students, that they accord their education the value that is due it, and
~ a meaningful Advent.
"It is God's Will that in this world souls shall dispense to each other, by prayer, the treasures of Heaven, in order that when they reach their Everlasting Home they may love one another with grateful hearts, and with an affection far in excess of that which reigns in the most perfect family on earth." - Saint Therese of the Child Jesus, in The Story of a Soul
Around the House
Catching up with laundry, as usual. I want a manageable hamper level in a couple of days because I really SHOULD stop using my weekends for catch-up housework.
I cleaned out the pantry last weekend. You don't want to know what I found there...
Around the House
I am hoping that the box that contains the Advent ribbons for our home altar is NOT at the bottom of the boxes that contain our Christmas decors. Because if that is the case... :-)
I think I'm going for the bigger Advent candles this year. Last year, the week one candle was already almost used up when we got to week three.
Relative quiet. Husband just left with Eldest Daughter and Only Son, he to the office and they to school. I am left with my two homeschoolers who are still in their rise-and-shine routine.
