Busy day today! Started with a retreat at SVdP for the Board of Directors and our Voice of the Poor group. Was an informative retreat. Discussed the difference of charity and Social Justice while dealing with the problems we work with our clients. This lasted until noon. Spent some time changing closet from summer ware to my winter clothes. A friend then brought us a bowl of beef stew. I was just trying to think of what to make for dinner when they called. Was perfect thing to heat up after we got back from church. We went to Mass tonight so that we can sleep a little later tomorrow morning, and so we can get to our PSR class to set up before the kids arrive. After asking for prayers for our niece at Mass, I had four people come up to us who talked about losing loved ones to drug abuse. They moved because because of the stigma of the deaths. It was kind of comforting to realize that our case is so common in recent times. Sad that it is so common. Such a waste for so many people and so much pain for the people they leave behind. The temps here have plummetted down to the teens. So tomorrow is going to be make a pot of chili day. I think chili and some corn bread might be a great way to combat the cold temps. Since I got up early, I am going to head to bed early. Hope you have a great Sunday! I look forward to working with my kids for their first Reconciliation. It is 5 weeks away.
