We all have moments when our jugs run dry and our flour is at a premium. That is when we must draw on the Lord. Like the widow and her son God will send people into our lives at the right moment and the right time to say have faith

As moms we need a way to sort out our day.

The Examen is not punitive, its all about the positive
As moms we could really use a way to sort out our day 

Saint Ignatius never intended that the Examen be viewed as a punitive exercise.  He believed in a loving God who wanted only the best for us, but also called us to change.  And for Ignatius that change was always for the better.  

Try to focus on one aspect of your day, look at what went well that day, and if it’s just one thing; that’s ok, you are looking for the silver lining in every cloud; God’s there to help you find it.

What to know a spiritual director?

It is nice to encounter a 'spiritual director', but is she also one who want to lead people to the True God, Who is Only One God of gods?
Looking at her site it looks more she wants people to believe in a tri-une god?

In his homily Sunday Father made some wonderful points about how God loves us. Too often I don't see myself as God does: Good

Moms God has trusted us with His creation our children, so He must think we are greater than we sometimes believe ourselves to be

I feel badly about not having to work with Larry directly, but I have to tell you this man will move heaven and earth to do what is right for you! He was going to take time out from a family funeral and come to diagnose the problem with our AC....well we went with someone else; but I will always have Larry on speed deal and since he is a neighbour I am also posting this on the Westside Facebook page. Larry you are wonderful!

Fantastic service!!!!! If Wilson isn't your first pick for repair you are making a HUGE mistake! I had set up four appoints to have diagnostics on our AC. The first company to come out was All Weather....he did "an inspection" of our system and determined that we need a whole new system which would have costed us in the thousands; I took the information and waited for the next estimate. The next estimate was from Wilson. OMG! They are wonderful. What they did as fixes were so simple, cost effective and right that we didn't need to look any where else! Instead of thousands of dollars, it costed us under 300! Wonderful people, wonderful service!
