I feel like I should rename this blog, “Kassie’s Desperate Pleas For Prayer From Cyber Catholic Friends”.
It isn’t as pithy, so I won’t.
But we lost my great-grandmother this week somewhat unexpectedly, and I’m back in Texas for the funeral. Anytime you get a family as large as my extended family in one place, there is going to be some chaos. My Mimi was one of the most loving, fiercely loyal, beautifully strong women it has ever been my pleasure to come across, and she will be dearly, dearly missed.
The weekend hasn’t been all sad, however – I stopped in Dallas yesterday on my way home and spent the night with Calah and her wonderful family. There was wine, and Doctor Who, and babies, and a whole menu full of Pioneer Woman recipes. I even got to indoctrinate the budding ballerina Sienna with Giselle video clips on youtube. It makes me tear up a little bit to think about how God brings people into our lives in the most bizarre, unsuspected ways at exactly the right time.
Also not sad: my godmother is blogging again! I was so excited to check my email and have a digest from her lovely blog My Thoughts Along The Way. Go give her some love and beg her not to leave us again.
