Sunday Snippets


Joining up today with RAnn’s Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival. Our question of the week is: May is the month of Mary.  Are there an Marian devotions other than the rosary which you use?

Er, no. Like RAnn, I also liked May Crowning as a child, and we would always cut peonies to bring in–at least that’s what I remember. But I also remember the drama of who got to place the crown, and it seemed like one more opportunity for me to lose the popularity contest. In adulthood I led music for May crowning, and I realized how much I absolutely loathe those two pieces of music. (Am I excommunicated now? 🙂 )

Okay, posts:

A graduation speech made me realize what the two driving issues of my life are. One of them is environmental stewardship, and realizing that I decided to share our family’s conservation practices. Some of them, anyway.

I also reflected recently on what I’ve learned about raising a strong-willed child.

  1. Bring flowers of the fairest,

    Tis the month of our mother?

    I like them well enough to hear them once a year but if they were composed by Haugen or Haas the conservatives would pan them worse than you do.

    • Bring Flowers of the Rarest definitely. On This Day O Beautiful Mother I don’t like either. Lisping children make me want to start throwing statues. 🙂
