We’ve been through trying times…times of sickness, surgery and worry…and yet, these times have brought us closer together in faith…given us hope…and shown us the beauty of true Christian charity.

I’ve been absent once again, dear friends. Living day by day, struggling to get to the next place and praising God for all the little graces in between. February is always such a brutal month in the life of this home educating mom. The gray sky, frigid temperatures and harsh winds seem to go on interminably and the shortest of months seems always the longest.

And then, without warning, it’s March. We hope anew. We watch and wonder, awed by the renewal and rejoice with friends, this month of Feasts…

I leave you with many pictures and few words until I can find more. A glimpse of green from the little bit of Ireland we tried to conjure as Spring approaches. Blessings to you…and prayers, too!
