Yesterday at mass, I had all sorts of wonderful, blog-worthy thoughts. Right now, all of those beautiful thoughts are a jumble as I sit and wait.
I would like to share a quote from Rev. Fulton J Sheen as a belated mother's day thought.
"A woman is capable of more sacrifices than a man. Man is more apt to be a hero, through some great passionate outburst of heroism. But a woman's love makes a thousand small sacrifices, sprinkling them through the days and the months; their very repetition gives them the character of the commonplace. Not only her soul, but her body, has some share in the Calvary of Redemption; furthermore, she comes closer to death than man, whenever she brings forth a child." Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, (Life is Worth Living)
I really love this quote. Our daily tasks lead us to Christ... it's not a awesome event that makes mothers heroic, but a lifetime of giving and sacrificing.
Happy Mother's Day.
I'll get back with you later today and share a detail or two on my sweet girl!
