she's BACK

I don't know how I missed it, but Helena from a diary of lovely is writing her blog, once again!! Hers is one of my favorite go-tos. I am inspired by her writing a blog in another language than her native Spanish, her outfits, and cooking skills. But the best thing is that for all of her talents, not a shred of pride comes across in her posts. 

Know her yet? If not, head on over!

your story

Every day we are writing our story, or sewing our family quilt. Maybe the page or the little portion of the quilt seem insignificant in themselves, much like putting glasses back in the cabinet and cleaning the crumbs. In themselves, they do not amount to much.

Have you ever been to Niagra Falls? Have you ever seen all that water rushing down the cliffs into a misty abyss? It's huge. It's powerful. It's grand.

You know where I am going.

I like to look at my own family and imagine my parents as young and starting out.   They did not know what the future held, and day in and day out, stuck to the path. I see what our family has now grown into and I can see the book my own family will have one day, the quilt. It will not look the same, but it will be something magnificent.

And so will yours.

glory of motherhood

I've been in a pause state with this blog.

Would I continue?
Should I continue?
What is my aim?

What I want to be doing is sharing the journey. Sharing the glory.

Our culture has made a huge mistake in devaluing mothers. You can feel it. It is tossed aside and yet, most women are mothers. And if we devalue mothers, we are devaluing children, and ultimately ourselves. So I begin with a question.

Who is the Queen of Heaven and Earth?

A mother.

Who we are is important. It's importance is deigned by God and therefore, promoted by the Church, who is also a Mother, doctrinely speaking, and funnily enough.

So our goal is to

Let motherhood form us.


Delve deeper into its riches.


Be thankful for its glory.


And Let our motherhood be informed by Mary.
