I just received a Happy St.Patrick's Day e-card from a sweet friend who always remembers to think of me and it made my day. And I thought - this is exactly what I meant in today's post! Women are so good at affirming love! In addition, just this past week I have gained two "prayer stalkers". (I use that term in the most affectionate way possible.) It's just, out of the blue I received a letter from a woman who had read my articles in The Courier and she said I am her new mission. She's going to pray for me and my family, especially my sick boys. The next day I received another sweet letter from her and some tea!
Two days after that I received another letter from a different woman! She said she is praying for our family and had Masses offered for us. Both said something to the effect of "no need to reply, just wanted you to know I'm praying for you!" It doesn't take much to show love, affirming love that expects nothing in return - but it makes such a difference.
Here's to you, woman made to love! That your feminine love might enrich the world around you! You are amazing ... just the way you are. Aaaaaaand "prayer time" is over - commencing referee role again!
