Holy Day

'Although it is not mentioned in scripture, the Assumption of Mary has been a solidly held belief of our faith since apostolic times. It has been celebrated liturgically since the 6th century AD.

Mornings with Mary: My Ramblings

host a writing group

thank you for listening with kind ears

Quotography: School

"He who opens a school door closes a prison door." ~Victor Hugo~
a proud day for all,

out of high school.
By this date in 1966,
my husband and I
 had three children
ages 4, 5 and 6 years old.
