Today after we dropped the girls at the theater, TheBoy and I stopped at the grocery store because I’d forgotten to buy dishwasher detergent. Our grocery store is promoting their roses right now. TheBoy saw a bucket full of roses and exclaimed, “Mommy! I’m going to get YOU those pink roses!!!” He was beaming. What else could I do but hand him $8 and let him pick a dozen roses?! What a sweet, sweet boy!

About this Blog’s Name
This blog's name was taken from Pope John Paul the Great's Apostolic Exhortation on the Role of Christian Families in the Modern World:
THE ROLE OF THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY
Family, Become What You Are
17. The family finds in the plan of God the Creator and Redeemer not only its identity, what it is, but also its mission, what it can and should do. The role that God calls the family to perform in history derives from what the family is; its role represents the dynamic and existential development of what it is. Each family finds within itself a summons that cannot be ignored, and that specifies both its dignity and its responsibility: family, become what you are.
