A child-speak funny...


I took the kids to Mass by myself today(nausea and all) and they were very well behaved. Halfway through Mass, my younger son whispers "Latin must be really popular now". I couldn't help but smile. It was crowded today, a lot of new people which was a delayed effect of 9/14/07 and that was still so encouraging to see. I told the kids I would take them to lunch after Mass because I was so grateful for good behavior and getting through without incident. My younger son asked me on the way home if we could pray for that old man who was poor we saw a few months ago. Wow. Not only did he remember but he said he was worried he lost his house and needed our prayer. This from an autistic boy who should be self-involved and apathetic. It made my day. Still nauseous and still smiling that my son "gets it" and I'm very pregnant. Hope everyone else is having a wonderful Sunday.

when your children say things like this it just makes you want to shout out to the whole world, "I love my kids and they are so amazing!!!!!!" (which you can do when you have a blog!!) ;)

I look at how God has moved us to where we are now and I am amazed at what He has done through my children. The Catholic school education plus the influence of others has molded them in quite a surprising way.

Sometimes I think God speaks thru' children, especially the special ones, telling us exactly what we need to hear.

God Bless!
