I love your playlist! We have the same taste in music. Great blog!


Wonderful...I particularly love the part about the clean garage...my car is in the garage now, too, but because sorting through things that belong to Ron are off limits...he keeps is cleaned up. He's afraid I'll throw out something "important"...to him! Good job!


great photo kathy. I will have to do the simple womens day book one day.


It's fun to get to know you better. Beautiful girls you have! Thanks for the link to my blog. I'll return the favor!

Lovely girls! They must bring you great satisfaction. Of course, watch out for the teen years.

Now, why should you only admire the Amish from a distance? If you admire them, why can you not emulate them? Certainly their lifestyle is very compatible with Catholic teaching -- we have St. Francis and others to serve as examples.

I speak from experience. That simple life is both practical and gratifying.


Dawn, I am glad that someone else shares my taste in music. I have added your blog to my list of favorites. Keep up the good blog!

Cathy, I know what you mean. As I was entering my Daybook post; my husband's collection of hats fell out of his closet. I was just dying to scoop up some and take them to our donations center. But, of course I can't do that without his knowledge or permission.

Cassie, Thanks for the comments about my girls. I do enjoy your blog. I hope that my visitors will pop over to see you too!

Marie, My dear Aussie friend. I do enjoy the sound of rain; it is very comforting!

That dinner sounds yummy, you must share the recipe with us sometime.

God Bless!



Thank you for your lovely comment on my girls. They are awesome! And we are already in the teen years with Hayley, she will be 17 in December.

Your right about simplicity, it can be very gratifying.

God Bless!


I find the Amish comforting as well. We use some of their school resources such as their Pathway Readers. They have the sweetest stories, even for older children. My son still talks about the primary readers which cover Peter's Amish adventures on the farm. There is always a moral to the stories, so it's always worthwhile, and never any doctrine. Just good old fashioned Christian values.

Can you tell I read them and like them too(giggle). I'll have to read The Long Winter. I like children's literature as well, especially Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Hope your children are feeling well again.



Thanks for visiting today. The Amish do make an impression on us. Their simplicity and old-fashioned values are quite attractive.

I will be eager to find out how you like THE LONG WINTER once you have read it! Keep me posted.

The Memorare

  • The Memorare
    Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, My Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer them. Amen.

Having trouble Conceiving?

Spiritual Adoption prayer of Archbishop Sheen

  • "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of ( Baby's name) the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion."

Priests for Life end to Abortion prayer

  • Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the Resurrection of Your Son. I am ready to do my part in ending abortion. Today I commit myself Never to be silent, Never to be passive, Never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, And never to stop defending life Until all my brothers and sisters are protected, And our nation once again becomes A nation with liberty and justice Not just for some, but for all, Through Christ our Lord. Amen! .


  • "America you are beautiful . . . and blessed . . . . The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless. If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, then America, defend life -Pope John Paul II
