I have had some computer problems that continue to keep me from getting to my blog, but today I was blessed with the chance to be able to use my son's laptop since he did not take it with him to school today.
I must say that the time away from my blog was well spent.
I have been focused on prayer and keeping up with my pro-life work.
I believe it is Divine Intervention that helped my son's laptop be home today so that I may post on this day of the New Presidency.
My heart is heavy.
As my 11 year old spoke to me this morning about watching the change of power in school today, I tried hard to not give him the look that my insides were feeling. We discussed the Historic event that was taking place today; however, we also discussed the what could be faced for the pro-life movement due to this historic event.
I am amazed at how Joseph took things in so well.
He told me,"We have to help save the babies and we must help those who don't have what they need to live a safe and healthy life, right mom?"
"Yes, Joseph we must support life at each stage. We must start with the RIGHT TO LIFE and go from there to help support the gift of life. WE MUST continue to go to the homeless shelters, the soup kitchens, and help with the food pantries. We must continue to support help for the third world countries where the people are not able to be safe and healthy. We must stand up for all those people whose voices are not being heard. We must do our part since God is counting on us. We must share with others that without the right to life no other right matters."
He looked at me with his big eyes and said,'Today when we are watching Obama become president, I will pray in my head that he will have a change plan when it comes to the babies and I won't play my Wii today like your fasting for the babies who will not be born today."
Wow!! He really took me by surprise! Yes, we must respect President Obama for his position as our president. However, I will NEVER respect his policies on Life and will fight and fight to help stop them as long as there is breath left in me.
My children, my future grandchildren, and my godchildren deserve more in this world. They deserve a world where abortion is not an option. They deserve a world where hunger is not an option. They deserve a world where safety is not an option. They deserve a world where we take care of each other.
This will never happen as long as the unborn babies are aborted.
Abraham Lincoln said (and by now most of you have seen this quote, but I love it so much I have to repeat it)," Nothing stamped with the divine image and likeness was sent into the world to be troden on ..."
It feels good to be back and in the saddle again!
Love to each and don't forget,
Pray your rosary today for our President and for his change of heart. If my 11 year old can get it, I am sure enough of our prayers will help him get it.
Welcome to my blog! I welcome you with a warm heart. I will not apology for my views on my blog. I am pro-life. I vote for pro-life candidates. I support pro-life causes. I am also involved with many social justice causes in my commuity. I believe we need to care for the defenseless no matter what form they take: baby in the womb, elderly, children, the hungry, the homeless, and the lonely. I believe that all men and women were created equal and have the RIGHT to LIFE, LIBERTY, & the pursuit of HAPPINESS.
I believe strongly in a just wage so all the men/women have a chance to live outside of poverty. I believe that we are responsible for making sure that our brothers/sisters in this world do not go hungry, a bed to sleep in, have someone to love them, and health care. I believe that we should make sure that everyone in this country and this world should have the basic needs.
I pray that as this blog evolves it will become a voice for those defenseless babies, men, women, and children in our country that need us to protect, to help, and to support them.
Thank you for stopping by and may God bless you with his love.
I am a Pro-life, Catholic wife and mother of 4 wonderful children. I am cooperator for Opus Dei, a Missionary of the Gospel of LIfe for Priests for Life, and determined to teach my family that making a difference in this world is not something exceptional, but required of us!!
He is St. Joseph in the making; he works hard to take care of us, he works hard to raise his family in the Catholic Faith, he works hard to always do what is right, he works hard to be our own fixer up man, he works hard because he has such a good heart. Thank Honey for all you do for us! We love you and appreciate all your kindness, guidance, love, patience, and at times, being overwhelmed with all the chaos the five of us seem to bring about!!
My husband is a Captain on the E190 for JetBlue. I think he is the most wonderful pilot in the world.
He's heading to Massachussettes College of Pharmacy in the Fall.
Thomas has worked so hard throughout his high school career. He will be graduating June 26, 2009. He recently received the Hands of Christ Award from our parish.
Joyful and loving is this growing so fast kid!
Sisters are bonded at the heart!!

The Catholic Church is Pro-Life "Human life is sacred and inviolable at every moment of existence, including the initial phase which precedes birth. All human beings, from their mothers' womb, belong to God who searches them and knows them, who forms them and knits them together with his own hands, who gazes on them when they are tiny shapeless embryos and already sees in them the adults of tomorrow whose days are numbered and whose vocation is even now written in the "book of life." There too, when they are still in their mothers' womb — as many passages of the Bible bear witness — they are the personal objects of God's loving and fatherly providence." — Evangelium Vitae, n. 61
