Monday Morning Musings
Bangkok, Thailand 1. Highlight of the weekend? (Besides the fact that Michigan is finally warm....) Our pastor's homily . So much great stuff to ponder for the whole week. Isn't that what a homily is supposed to be? 2. I'm thinking weddings. Got a bunch of ...

Dancing at the bus stop
I woke up in pain this morning. That's pretty typical, but this morning, it seemed a heavier burden. "Why? Oh, God, why?" is not how I like to start my day. I'm struggling with one of my kids right now; we just seem to be totally unable to communicate. It's...

Easter Monday Morning Musings
My beautiful dark-haired daughter and me on Easter 1. First, Easter Vigil was incredible. Our priest is so reverent, so joyful - he makes every liturgy  such a prayerful experience. Plus, we had about 15 people join the Church. 2. Our Easter was lovely. We ...

Man Down
I left work yesterday, taking my usual route from the office to the expressway. As I turned a corner, I saw a man lying in the street, with another man standing over him. The one in the street did not appear hurt. I think he was either drunk, tired or both ...

Monday Morning Musings
1. It was First Communion at our parish yesterday, as it was in many parishes. Our pastor reminded us, in his sermon that Christ is truly present - Body, Blood, Soul & Divinity - in the Eucharist. He also spoke to the children, reminding them that it was an...

Is Easter Still In Your Heart?
The chocolate bunnies are long gone. Maybe there is still a stash of jelly beans somewhere. The white patent leather shoes are on the top shelf of the closet, set aside for Sunday dress. The Easter ham has been eaten, leftovers are gone. Jesus is Risen! All...

Monday Morning Musings
My heart is so full! We enjoyed my mom's 90th birthday this weekend with family and friends. I don't think it could have been better! I had five of my six kids there (with one kid engaged I now have a bonus son!), my sisters, and my foster sister. She flew ...

I serve at my King's good pleasure
I have an uncanny knack for getting sick during Holy Week. I'm done with some stomach virus this year. In some ways this is a great disappointment: I've been practicing music for weeks, it's the holiest time of year and the greatest time to worship in commu...

Monday Morning Musings: Holy Week
1. If you're Catholic, you know Holy Week is a marathon. This goes double for priests, deacons, parish workers and choir members. Pray for them! (Really - pray for us. The choir has no idea what we're doing.) 2. If' you wake up forty minutes before your ala...

This man frightened my daughter. He spent more time explaining his record-keeping system than attending to her. I would not recommend their services to anyone.

I have been here twice, both times for pedicures. I will not go back. The first time was okay. The second time I went, the man doing the pedicure seemed liked he could hardly be bothered. He was distracted the entire time, rarely spoke to me but engaged in conversation with many others in the shop. At one point, he tore off a part of my toenail. When I yelped, "That hurt!" he replied, "No, it didn't." Really?? Bad service, incompetent staff and unfriendly atmosphere. Nothing here to like.
