Counting My Blessings

Camille's Sisterly Love...This morning I woke up to the sound of this sweet little girl singing "Twinkle, twinkle, little star".  Ken left for work early and somehow Camille had silently made her way into our bed.  When I heard her singing, I opened my eyes to find Camille with her arm around Meghan (who was sleeping in my arms) singing a song to her little sister.

The Blessed Virgin...What would I do without Mary?  Since Meghan was about 2 months old, she has screamed every night from 7 to 8PM.  This has truly tested my patience and made going back to work particularly difficult for me.  Finally last week after a particularly trying night, I turned to the Blessed Virgin.  After just one decade of the rosary, not only did Meghan stop screaming, but she was peacefully asleep!  Every night since then, one decade of the rosary lulls Meghan to sleep, and we finally have peace in our house.

My SAI sisters...On Sunday I went to a pot-luck for the music fraternity I belong to.  During the "meeting" portion of the night, I mentioned that I was hoping to purchase a piano in the next year, preferred an upright grand, and was looking to pay no more than $500 for it.  These women are very active in the music community, and I frequently hear about grandmothers giving away pianos right after they've given them away, of course.  We just so happened to have a new member join our group that night who had moved here from New Jersey.  She squealed when she heard what I was looking for.  It turns out she moved her upright grand piano here, but the movers could not get it up to her 3rd floor apartment.  She was paying more than $100 a month to keep it in a storage facility and desparately needed to sell the piano.  Sometimes God just brings us together!  Pictures of my new piano will be coming soon!

  1. <3 those sisterly moments!
    What a great idea about the Rosary! I pray it during the scream-fests, but silently. I will try it aloud tonight!
