7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 16)
OK, I’ll just come out and admit it: the 2008 Weblog Awards have been a slight source of anxiety for me this week. I kept calmly remind myself that the purpose of this blog is really not about traffic or awards and that I need to keep focused on just sharing my experiences about where the Lord leads me in my newfound faith. And then, just as I would be feeling prayerfully detached about it all, some loud voice from the back of my mind would interrupt with, “BUT WOULDN’T IT BE COOL TO WIN?!?!?”

overcome the temptation to desire worldly blogging acclaim. give up in bitter defeat
I heard that the Catholic New Media Celebration is going to be in San Antonio in June this year. I’m there!
I laugh so hard every time I see this bag of cat food at my mom’s house:
Umm, could I get a little more information about this part right here, the part where we go from slices of juicy beef tenderloin and roasted turkey fresh from the cutting board to the desiccated, amorphous blobs of cat food actually contained in the bag?:
Maybe my little cat food connoisseur could explain the connection.
My 32nd birthday is Monday. One thing about having four children in five years is that it makes 32 sound so young. I feel like I’ve been so busy in the past few years that I should be turning 92!
In part due to my friend Abigail’s inspiring thoughts on attending daily Mass with her three young children, I went to daily Mass today at noon. I was so pleasantly surprised to see that there were about 150 – 200 other people there, especially considering that it’s not a major feast day, the other area parishes also offer daily Masses, and this isn’t the only Mass today. Even though I felt like I “didn’t have time,” I’m very glad I went.
I was going to write more but the girls are here and anxious to tell me about their days, so that’s it for now.
[This was written late Thursday afternoon and scheduled to be published later, in case anyone glanced at the timestamp and wondered what on earth my 10-year-old neighbors are doing over at midnight.]
I leave you with this thought:
I look forward to reading your posts!
