Palin Debate

I've heard Sarah Palin quit as Governor of Alaska. What to make of this. I've seen the debates, good decision, bad decision. Either way, if she was seeing her job affecting her family negatively or her state negatively, I applaud her stepping down.

What I want to discuss is the possibility of her run in 2012 for President. I heard one commentator state, as she is extremely pro family, that a run for President would seriously damage her family, especially considering a child of hers with special needs. Good point. Though to make change in our nation, that is so desperately needed, a person just like her might be the one to do it. So here's the question, does she sacrifice the needs of her children to steer our country where we need to go, especially if she's the only one able to do it.

Hey I am pro-family all the way. But i do think back to the many men and women who have sacrificed not only time with their family for our great nation, but their very life and limb to protect American lives. Any person in the military would agree how much sacrifice is involved in serving their country. Is it only applicable to men? Another conundrum. Is it more appropriate for men rather than the "heart of the home", women?

The interesting debate truly, is that feminist women would love to have a woman president, just not her! It would actually be exciting to see a woman succeed in securing the Presidency, who would disprove all the Radical Feminist ideology.

My opinion is mixed. I think enough people like her and would vote for her considering the direction our current President is dragging us. In the end, the decision is hers. She must weigh the consequences of her actions, and we as a voting public must trust in political figures prudence. We can't simpy vote for the other guy thinking that her children will suffer with her as President.

Words Can Hurt

When we first started having children, like most people, we realized quickly how they often work as a mirror to our own actions. Letting a swear word slip here or there was not uncommon in our home, yet, when our first child was about 18 months or so, and hearing my swear word echo in the house for several days from her little lips, well, it was enough to curb my speech, dramatically.


And now, swear words are never spoken in front of the children, and we have adopted a few more words that are unacceptable in the house, even though common place in the world. Just another example at how, as parents, we truly are the domestic church. The world may be on the path of negativity, but the home is where we make the difference.

My four year old the other day, said, "I hate tomatoes!" Not the worst thing to hear from her mouth, granted, however, the word 'hate' bothers me a lot. 'Hate' is a very strong word, opposite of 'Love'. Think of how strong that word, …

Little Guys and Big Things

Sometimes, Veggie Tales stick with you. Even when an 8 year old seems too old for Veggie Tale stories, and reluctantly watches a few, the messages do stick. 

Over the weekend, my Knight was to serve Mass.  For the past few Sundays he has been serving, and we keep reminding him of the various ways to show reverence while doing his duties.....a bow to the tabernacle, folding of the hands and so forth.

Sunday, I happened to be watching Knight lather his gel in his hair to ready for Mass, and I once again, reminded him to keep his reverent ways about him while serving.  He made a distinct face at me, and said, "Ugh, Mom, those other server boys are bigger than me.  I don't want to do something they aren't doing."

"I understand, but you could set the example, because you know, what you are doing is the right thing."

He shook his head, looked at himself in the mirror, and seeing his own image reflected, said again, "I'm the youngest one there, Mom."…

Domo Arigato Gozaimasu Nihon - Thank You Japan

First, I apologize.  It's almost been a week since my last post, and life certainly has a way to take me over. 

We have many commitments, many places where we have promised our time and energy, and when sickness sets in for me or anyone in our home, life pretty much stops....for little while anyway.

Thankfully, the illnesses are down to minor colds, and as of yesterday, I am off the meds to treat a sinus infection.  But that's not all.  It's re-enrollment time at school, and every March we face the same uncertain future in debate...Can we swing yet another year's worth of financial commitment to our Catholic school, for four children.

It's a stressful time, it's uncertain, and I have to say, that security is something I thrive on.  Any insecurity, and I tell you, life just isn't right.  With the children unaware of our finessing the budget, we work to keep that calm and peace that assures the children all will be well.  But for me, inside, my heart sinks to…
