Welcome Thomas James!

There is a new baby in the blogasphere world. Click here to oooh and ahhh and maybe leave a welcoming comment! Congratulations Jenni & David! Read more!

... as it appears that little Cecilia, barely one month old, may be getting a cold. She is stuffy, gagging on mucus and having a rough time. I am cool misting her which is giving her some comfort. Could someone cool mist my brain please? I am feeling frantic and extremely challenged emotionally. Cecilia and I just barely recover from one illness when we are confronted with another - since the day of her birth.

There is a lovely thought I would like to share with you from Elizabeth Foss. She has put into words the thoughts I have been struggling to form since Cecilia's birth as I struggle to balance the joy and wonder of the addition of a new, tiny, fragile member to our family with the responsibilities that come with being a homeschooling mum to a baker's dozen. Click here to read her thoughts as she struggles to do the same.

A quote from Sister Patricia's Joynotes: "The more I get a little older myself.. I see that with age comes the cross and holiness.... somehow I always had a sort of feeling that holiness was in doing and accomplishing.. but now I believe it is more in accepting and trusting."

I will finish with a little begging - for prayers. Prayers for health for our whole family and prayers for the graces I am in desperate need of to cope with all of this illness!
