Happy 81st Birthday Holy Father!

"Like a wave gathering force, my thoughts go out to all men and women of today, to believers and non-believers alike." -Pope Benedict XVI


  1. I listened to the radio as he was dis-embarking from the plane - and was almost brought to tears! I can hardly wait to read/listen to what he says to our American audiences. What a great privilege it would have been to see and hear him in person.

  2. Hi Laura!
    We met at the girls' tea party last year & the host just told me about your blog today. I love it!! I'm sure I'll be a regular visitor.
    God bless!!

  3. The kids & I returned from choir this afternoon to see a package on the front step. Could it be? Did I see the Caribou Coffee logo on the side of the box?

    I did! I did! A present for ME to celebrate our beloved Papa's birthday!

    Jamie, you are the kindest, most considerate friend ever. I hope that I will not embarrass you by sharing the inscription with your readers, who are fast learning what a beautiful, generous soul you are anyway.

    The message read: This won't take away the pain, but please know you are thought of daily! May God pour His graces upon you!

    He has and He does, Jamie, and you are proof of that. Thank you, my friend, with all my heart.

    PS. And do you know, I am nearly out of coffee! :)

  4. I watched the President and the Pope this morning at the ceremony at the White House. Everyone was so happy & exited. Would have loved to have been in the crowd.
    You are a blessing to everyone! Nerm

  5. I forgot to say, that I was encouraged by Pres. Bush's remarks about the sanctity of life. It was a brave thing to do and hopefully, will send a strong message.


Thank you so much for stopping and commenting!
