Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

In All Honestly

I've recently received A HONEST SCRAP blogger awards. In all honestly, Thank you JMJ at Totus Tuus Family . You have been an inspiration! the rules:

1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award.
2) Share "ten honest things" about myself.

3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.

4) Tell those 7 people that they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving it.

I can honestly say:

1.) That I am not the greatest wife out there. I am the type to totally forget a request he had ask me to do, but its just not one time, its all the time. I'm working on it. (it seems that I have been saying that all my life)

2.) That I am closer to friends than I am to most of my brothers and sister. Why is that? How does a family that has the same mother and father can have so many different way of lives, from liberals to Conservative.. How is that one can't hold a truthful conversation about politics or religion with out feeling bad about? How does one see their family members missing out of God's greatest gift.. Our Faith! I know one of the greatest pro on homeschooling is that true relationship which the children have with each other! I can't be more grateful for those friends that I have here and few that are away! God sure has blessed us once again!

3.) That my greatest fear is having that PHONE call about my parents, (writing this with tears in my eyes), that one day I will not be able to call them any more and being so far away from them, I will miss that chance to have that last visit, that last hug or that last kiss. Take each moment as your last one with your loved ones!

4.) That I so love my family. That I can just kiss my kids all the time. That even thu they drive me crazy at times, that I will not trade each day with them to be a famous person or have a great career. That nothing is more beautiful than to wake up to the love of your life at your side and little ones at your feet.

5.) That I am an easy going person, maybe someone would say too easy going, to easy to please others, maybe I should be more easy to please God.

6.) That I wish that I was home schooled, I now see how bad my education was, how much I missed out on, my learning style would of been at its best in a home school environment. But I so grateful for my parents hard effort for all that they did for me and still do!

7.) That I spend money to fast and too much! I wonder what do I buy, if you see my closest I have the same clothes for years, same shoes, no new purse, so what do I spend all my money on? others, my children, my home, gifts, junk! aww to give it all away and live simpler..

8.) That I would love to spend my day playing soccer. How I miss the game, the running, the shots on goal, the take aways..Its a beautiful sport, you really have to think ahead and use your soul as a weapon to win, but winning in the person you have become in playing the sport!(does that make sense?)

9.)That I get lost in the world of the Internet without thinking twice about it. You just start looking at one thing and before you know it has been a few more things.. Aww what did we do before this Internet thing?
10.) That I love my faith, there is nothing more beautiful! How rich we are! The thought that we have a better place after earth. I love it here, I am happy here, one should be happy here for God shows himself to us everyday, in the sun rise, in the night stars, in the laughter of my children, in the rain, on snowy days, in the small hands of a baby reaching you, in the most Holy Eucharist, in Our Holy Father and in music and in art. The question really is do we see Him in those things?

Recipients of Honest Scrap: 7, I'll do my best! You ladies have been such a inspiration, even for those that I haven't know long, you speak the truth in the world that is full of lies! Keep up the great work you do, with one child at a time you will change the world!
