Oh my word!! It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything!!
Lots has been going on. My project with church? It turned out to be quite wonderful!! It did upset the balance of the family for a short bit, but it was well worth it. I am quite happy, and already working on next year.
THEN a week and a half after that insane, busy event I gave birth to our 6th child!!! He’s so incredibly beautiful. The whole family is smitten with him. I have to say that since he was born the day before Ash Wednesday (thank you, Fr. John, for coming into my room and bestowing me with ashes and such a beautiful blessing for myself and my child…) my lent has been, well, lacking. I’ll get to that at a later time. Needless to say I’ve been in a sort of vacuum. A blessed, incredibly wonderful vacuum!! Once I figure out how to post pictures I’ll have them up for all to see.
I’ve got thoughts on elections, holidays (ugh, Valentines just kills me.) and motherhood but not a lot of time to put it all down.
As it is, there is a new life to snuggle and nurse and smell (isn’t the smell of a newborn baby just heavenly??? Seriously, it’s got to be the perfume of angels. Heavenly.) and a family to nurture.
