Reblog: 8 Reasons Why Augustine & The Confessions still Matter

Today is the Feast Day of St. Augustine, and while I don’t normally pay too close attention to Feast Days of Saints, other than my favorite Saints, I came across this clever blog post from Father Mark M Osa: 8 Reasons Why Augustine & The Confessions still Matter. I like St. Augustine because his story … Continue reading

Best Parenting Advice I’ve Seen in a While

While trolling Pinterest today as part of my marketing job (Gosh, I love my job!), I came across this pin: It almost made me cry. What a beautiful list of wisdom. And honestly, as I read through them, I realized that I could certainly use a refresher in some areas. “Show your loved ones your … Continue reading

Remembering the Sacrifices

  This quote from an ancient Greek historian is never more apt than when you read the stories of real American heroes. (And I’m not talking about GI Joe). Check out the Center of Military History and look through their archive of Medal of Honor winners. Read the citations, such as those of Cpl Jason … Continue reading

Encouraging More than Simple Sacrifice for Lent

Originally posted on Seton Spirit:
Lent is fast approaching! Have you already been considering what you want to give up? Will it be chocolate? Fast food? Or perhaps Pope Francis has inspired you to give up the gossip. Sacrifice is one of the hallmarks of the Lenten season, and it’s one part that our children…

We Remember 9-11: Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning?

This is a repost from last year, but my sentiments haven’t changed, so I didn’t feel the need to update my words. Like our parents before us, who can tell you down to the detail where they were and what they were doing the day JFK was shot, most of us know where we were … Continue reading

How Much I Feel: Remembrances of Summer Past

I don’t know what it is about the summertime that makes me nostalgic. But this is the time of year when I am most reflective and introspective. I suppose it’s because so many of my childhood memories involve searching for perfect sea glass and exploring the rocky outcroppings that separated the private beaches from the … Continue reading

The Penultimate Post: Y is Young Guns I and II

It’s my last post for the A-Z Challenge (Katie will be taking on Z tomorrow) and I bring to you the Brat Pack’s version of a western: Young Guns and Young Guns II. When the first Young Guns came out, I was an excited pre-teen. Just look at the cast–it’s an 80s teeny-bopper fantasy: Emilio … Continue reading

W is When Harry Met Sally…

When Harry Met Sally… is one of my top five favorite movies of all time. The coupling of Rob Reiner’s direction with Nora Ephron’s script might be one of the most romantic—and funniest—match-ups to occur in Hollywood. Add the perfect comedic timing of Billy Crystal as Harry and adorable, former America’s Sweetheart Meg Ryan and … Continue reading

U is Up

This is going to be one of the shortest blog posts you will ever read on here. But if you’re visiting from the challenge, I’m sure you appreciate that! Today’s U topic is Up, as in the movie Up from Pixar. One of the best family movies to have come out in the past few … Continue reading

S is Springfield–Rick Springfield, that is…

Anyone who knows me knows I adore Rick Springfield. And by adore I mean love. And by love I mean obsessively devoted to. It began when I was about six and my Aunt Linda let me watch one of his performances on TV. After that I was hooked. I wore out my Working Class Dog … Continue reading
