"I got to thinking one day about all those women on the Titanic who passed up dessert at dinner that fateful night in an effort to 'cut back.' From then on, I've tried to be a little more flexible."

Hope springs eternal

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers. – M. Scott Peck

Driven to distraction

Have you missed me? Well, I've missed you, blog readers. Where to start? Well, it's a funny thing. I have not felt a need to write for quite awhile.

Well, it’s really more than a “blessing” --marriage is a Sacrament of the Church.
