Celebrating Sunday!

I was making baked potatoes in our microwave, and it broke! So, our Sunday lunch will be a Sunday supper. This is my one day to put sugar in my coffee. I make a latte with microwaved milk and sprinkle yummy brown sugar crystals on the frothy milk. Oh, it is the little things that can get us!

This week, I re-discovered a beautiful website to help enhance our knowledge and practice of the liturgy, both at Mass and at home -- Catholic Culture (click here). JB and I are trying to get J, Dad and Mags to pose for updated pics on this blog. We are on the last leg of rehearsals for Alice in Wonderland and Tom Sawyer, which our homeschool coop parent teams are producing. I am loving my new role as Team Mom for girls' Challenge, a Catholic apostolate of the fruitful movement Regnum Christi. Four years ago, when I was the mother of a 2, 5 and 7 year old, I joined Familia (also a RC apostolate) at our parish for bi-monthly prayer, study of the Cathechism, the Sunday Gospels and fellowship. Since then, we have had many "Familia babies" -- Alleluia! And, I see our participation in Challenge as a natural and blessed fruit of those years of prayer and friendship.

Lent feels really long this year. Like all the young people around me, I have spring fever, big time! May we all stay blessed! May we show the world the beauty and power of the Resurrection by our experience of the little, daily blessings, as well as the wider issues that surround us.

Oh, I am sorry about the microwave - ours broke a few week ago and, whle waiting for it to be fixed, we had to be quite inventive. My yongesst was shocked that I could cook noodles and porridge on the stove, and without a microwave!
