What a gift Labor Day Was
I have taken up my gratitude journal again and find it makes a huge difference in my life to consciously thank God for the many gifts of each day. I really suggest that all join me in this spiritual exercise that also gives joy!
I woke up in the middle of the night and kept thinking about the Mother of Jesus who is also our mother. I realized that I have always thought of her as just a bit older than I - first when I prayed to Mater at school, and then as I grew up. Mater also seemed to get older with me as she had the wisdom to guide me, but she was also close enough in age to be a real friend. I just realized how my image of Mary seems to change over the years.
