Marriage Truth

As a society, we’re very desperate to believe that love works and that marriage work. That’s why we uphold couples that appear to have such a “healthy” marriage. Nevermind that we don’t get to see the difficult times and the ugly truths. We prefer to measure their relationship by the length of time because we’ve…

Reflections While Social Distancing

Happy good morning/afternoon, I hope everyone’s safe and sound. It’s been a reflective time in our household. By now we all pretty much know the schedule for EWTN. I wanted to share two things I’ve been reflecting on since 6am today. The first is the prayer of Sir Thomas More, : “Give us, Lord, a…

12 Years Later…

So, if you’ve read any of my posts you know a bit about my background and my upbringing. It’s not the most smooth transition. My life, like the life of so many others, hasn’t been full of linear events. It’s been like a rollercoaster or like mountain tops. Some events so much more massive and…

Marriage Fixes Everything

You’re probably laughing to yourself, and thinking, ‘um, no it doesn’t’! Well, you might be right about that, but you might also be kind of wrong about that. Marriage, on it’s own doesn’t fix anything. You can treat your marriage as a contract between two people or you can treat it as a covenant and…

Crying at Work …

It’s safe to say that yesterday was probably one of the best days I’ve had in a long time. Everything was falling into place, and I couldn’t ask for more. My husband and I finished couples counseling, and it was wonderful to think that after just four visits we felt our relationship was at the best…

Living on a Loan

I’ve been living my life on a loan ever since I was wee little cells in my mother’s body. Yeah, this story isn’t about finances. Believe me, you don’t want financial advice from me! I’m not great at it! However, I can tell you a bit about living on a loan because I have done…

I Hate this Most About Being Married

My husband and I are NOT the same, but we became one in matrimony. He and I are like combining lemon, and lime, and saying that’s one fruit. Yes, we’re both citrusy BUT I’m a lime, and he is a lemon. Limes are green, and smaller, whereas lemons are yellow and big. Don’t even get…

Conceived out of Wedlock

Unpopular opinion, but children deserve stability. They deserve a home. Coming from someone who had neither I can tell you it makes a world of a difference. That’s why I truly believe in having children in the bound of marriage, and not outside of marriage. There’s a reason why God calls couples who have taken…

Catholics are Perfect

Says no one ever. It’s really, what people think we think we’re vs. what is actually true. As a cradle catholic, I remember my husband asking me tons of questions when he was going through RCIA. I was his sponsor so for some reason he thought I had all the answers. Ha, boy was he…
