A Daybook for Holy Thursday

There was this package of goodness on my doorstep yesterday. I'll admit: I've been imbibing (and NOT SHARING).
Outside my window: Sun! And the promise of warm! Around the house: The baby is sleeping and the other three are all playing on various small-sized screens. This won’t last much longer, but as I sit here with my coffee in front of me, I’m just enjoying...

A Success Is a Success, However Small #SmallSuccess

Sometime in the last few months, my three-year-old son has become enamored with superheroes. Maybe it was his older cousin rubbing off on him. Maybe it’s that Daddy has The Avengers, an IronMan, or Captain America on pretty often. Or maybe it’s something hard-wired into little boys. I see...
