A Time to Count Our Blessings

My favorite deacon and I have a lot to be thankful for, and August is a good reminder.

Dylan, our 1st grandchild was born ten years ago today on the feast of St. Augustine. It seems like yesterday that I was pacing in the lobby of the hospital waiting for his arrival.

Our granddaughter Rosalie will celebrate her birthday tomorrow. Her wonderful Mom, our daughter in law, Aileen celebrated her birthday earlier this month. My Mom celebrated 80 plus years of life on the 23rd.

August 19th marked the 6th anniversary of my favorite deacon’s ordination.

July had a few  Ad Multos Annos too.

My son Sean and his wife Aileen celebrated 15 years of  Holy Matrimony; and my favorite deacon and I celebrated our 39th anniversary. Our Daughter Cathleen celebrated a birthday on the 31st.

Praise God. Life is both wonderful and hard. It is good to remember to praise God always even after I have cried out, “you have got to be kidding me God”.

    What you wrote is so true and I have found myself saying that many times to God. But I know I have to praise God, for who He is, no matter what. During my cancer journey I found a song by ‘Casting Crowns,’ called Praise You Through the Storm. Oh how I wept while listening to it.

    Susan, you have been such a powerful witness as you have battled cancer. Your faith is awesome. May you continue to have the strength to fight the good fight.
