Before I post my very last "Every Day in May for Mary," I have a confession to make. In case you didn't notice.
I failed. I missed yesterday. 'Twas not "Every day in May." I feel like a big loser saying "Every day in May" and then missing one day. I know I made 29 days in a row, but I missed one. I'm a glass half empty kinda girl, I guess. One part fail makes a whole fail.
I'm going to blame my daughter for going and getting the first summer cold and it's not even summer yet, really. I made her stay in bed all day yesterday because Noah is taking final exams this week, and Joshua next week, and neither needs a cold. Her eyes were leaking, for goodness sake. It seemed body fluid was coming from everywhere. And I was schlepping trays up and down stairs, delivering nourishment (Ramen noodles, bleh) and entertainment.
I know. It's my own fault. All I can say it I was working on rosaries for much of the day, in between up and down stairs with trays, so I know Our Lady forgives me. And besides, I do think Jesus was the only one reading after day five or so.
I did just say Jesus reads my blog, and I don't mean every day, but definitely when I post about His mother.
Appropriately, or maybe not, today my husband is putting in the ground my very brand new Wayside Shrine. I am so excited (I know, I should get a life -- but this is good to be excited about).
I say appropriately because it is May 31 (still May) and it is the Feast of the Visitation. And, I say maybe not, because this is my Mother's Day gift and it did not come on Mother's Day, it came yesterday, and my husband did not even tell me that it was on its way on Mother's Day, he just didn't give me a gift and I thought it was because I was a very bad mother (actually I didn't I just thought he was a very bad husband). That was a very long run-on sentence, but I would have said it just like that. Ok? Ok.
Anyway, it's a beautiful cedar Wayside Shrine and I can't wait for you to see it out in my new garden by the new steps. Photos coming soon -- like tomorrow...or...soon.
