My role is clear

I told the girls to set the table for our lunch.

This is what I got.

And I love it.

What! No lunch for Mommy? I guess they're taking your diet SERIOUSLY.

That's great. You've obviously taught them well what a well-rounded meal should look like: Food for the soul as well as for the belly.

So you really do devour books, do you?

This photo was such a delight on several levels.

Love, love, love this! I eat books for lunch, too. Lunch these days consists of a little Edward Tulane with Peter Pan for dessert. Delicious.

It's just perfect! Very colorful, and so springy and so bookish. Does a homeschooling mother ever get to eat her lunch like the little ones anyway? :-) So very special, enjoy these years. They fly by so quickly, believe me. (wink) Thanks for sharing.

I really enjoyed my visit to your blog today. You write beautifully! Your blog and pictures of your lovely family has brightend up my day. Thank you!

May I please ask for prayers? My name is Maria, I'm 41, and recently married (6/16/07). My husband and I want children very much. However we haven't been able to concieve yet. I had an issue with ovarian cysts. On Feb. 12th 2008 I had surgery to get rid of them. On that day the doctor told me I had severe endometriosis, massive adhesians (which is why they had to do the stomach opening surgery), and the two cysts were endometriomas. I was devastated. I never knew I had endomtriosis. I am especially devastated about being told I could be infertile.

I know I am blessed to have such a wonderful Catholic husband. He would make such a great Dad. I feel bad that I might not be able to give him children.

I have a devotion to the Blessed Mother and the Rosary. I pray the Rosary every day especially when I'm feeling down about my recent diagnosis.
I'd LOVE to hear from other Catholic ladies. Maybe you could pray for me and send an encouraging word or two?

May God Bless you.

My two littles still pull it off at bedtime....Narnia these days, umpteenth time around ;)

Thanks, all, for your comments, and prayers for you, Maria!

Chari, good to hear from you! But, don't remind me that these days will pass! :-)

The next time I do my "The Art of Reading Aloud" talk, I have got to come back and steal this picture to put on a power point presentation. Way too cute!!!

Steal away, Maureen!
