Today is...

Remember those old Snoopy and Charlie Brown comics?

Love is...Happiness is..

Life is like an ice cream cone...you have to learn to lick it.

I thought about today. And today is...

..eating Toblerone, Swiss chocolate, in honour of St Francis de Sales, once Bishop of Geneva and remembered for many wise sayings..and many other wise sayings which have been (falsely!) attributed to him.
...my family delivering four junk mail rounds without me, so I only have to help with an extra two delivery rounds and thus have time for coffee at Borders with some friends.
....a thinking homily this morning, on our life in the Church, as part of the body of Christ's Church, on Love, quoting both St Teresa of Avila and St Therese of Lisieux.
...smiling at the wit and wisdom of St Teresa of Avila during my reading time..About the injunction of the Apostle Paul that women should keep silent in church? Don't go by one text only.
...remembering to emphasize the homey, comfy, relaxed part of the homeschooling equation. You're at home. Be homey. Support, nurture, be gentle. Bravewriter blog
....reading Dies Domini by Pope John Paul II ( thanks for the link Fr Benedict). Being reminded to rediscover Sunday: Do not be afraid to give your time to Christ!
...watching Predator with the kids, a B grade movie to laugh over, while doing work stuff -and blogging.Italic
..cooking dinner. Again.

Good grief! As Charlie Brown would say.
