Thanks, Jen, for hosting!!
I have a Pope Francis post coming. If you want the gist of it, read Mary's post . . . my reactions were somewhat similar to hers. The only differece is is that I got to watch it when it happened. The short version of my post for here: LOVE him, so excited, he is so peaceful and humble.
I do not get all those who do not like Pope Francis already because he prayed in Italian and not Latin, or because he did not wear the stole. I do not get it at all, and I find it frustrating. I wonder if these people would have been offended by St. Francis too . . . . probably!!
If someone does understand it, please explain it to me.
I broke my Lenten fast from Facebook for the last few days. And I have realized I get most of my news from it. Other than a priest friend, who is in Rome right now, that sends us links to great articles, etc about Pope Francis, most of the articles I have read have come from links from Facebook. And I like that . . . . someone else is doing the searching form me!
-4-Bennett needs a family.
I am breaking away from my Little Flower Picture this week and sharing this little guy. He is with An Orphan's Wish. I am shocked that he still does not have a family. Please spread the word about him. To find out more information, go here.
This weekend last year, I ran my second marathon. I have lots of thoughts and feelings about that and how far away I feel from that accomplishment. There are days that I feel like I should take the 26.2 sticker off of my car. And, I wonder if I will ever be able to run a marathon again. I guess there are seasons for everything, but I am sad that I cannot do, right now, what I could do last year.
I love my family. I love my husband and my kids. TONS. And I think we have something really good. I am not sure why family life feels so natural and good for us when so many struggle, but I feel incredibly blessed this week!
OK, I lied. I am sharing some Little Flower Cuteness. I am sharing twins, Bo and Tao (again). Can you tell that I love these little guys!
Have a great weekend everyone!
