Sacred Reality

This blog was started by Mary. I am a Roman Catholic wife and mother, interested in applying my faith to every aspect of my life and to the world around me. I try not to be a "Sunday-only" Catholic. However, I am still working out my faith with fear and trembling.

Been a while

Ok, for some reason in the last year, I haven't posted much to my blog. Hmmmm...perhaps because this has been the craziest year of my life. Due to some BAD family stuff back in VA, we had to head out quickly, and we moved to SC on the spur of the moment. I had to take this awful job in SC, while 5 months pregnant, teaching 6th graders. We lost a great deal on a house, a ton of money, and had a heck of a time moving FIVE times in 5 months. All of this while BIG and pregnant and diabetic.
But, as the vacation bible school song goes, God is GOOD, all the time. I am learning what it means to rejoice in the day--for better or for worse, just count it all joy, even if it is a lot of pain.
I also have learned why people stay on welfare--it is a huge pain to get on to begin with! You get free medical care, and then you are supposed to be able to go off of it and have to pay 500 dollars a month, minimum, for your own and work a full-time job and juggle your kids and.....well, you get the picture. I don't know what the solution is, but I do know that life is TOUGH.
