Tagged Once More

I was tagged by Tracy and RoyalTLady some time ago to do two different MEME's but very much the same in some respects. Catch up is what this is called and I think I can combine them without offending anyone, because they ask me to consider things about who I am.

So, dear friends, these are the rules slightly altered to condense time and space.

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself and things that make you happy.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

So here it is. I will tell you what makes me happy and tie it to that random thing that brings our that happiness.

1. My faith. I am privileged to be lector in my parish of St. John the Baptist.

2. My family. I love family reunions. Laughing, loving and telling stories.

3. Sharing my faith. I am in awe of those I meet each year who wish to enter our faith community, as I am privileged to work in the RCIA process at St John's.

4. My grandchildren. From oldest to youngest they make me so happy. Happy because I can see the love and warmth with which they are nourished by their parents.

5. Bible Study. I've always been curious about the Bible and its wealth of instruction. Now I belong to two groups that are nourishing me.

6. My job. I cannot think of a time when I didn't want to help someone. When I was little I would read the monthly Maryknoll Magazine and tell Mom I wanted to be a missionary. Well, Providence led me to nursing. And in a way I'm a missionary as I must help and aid others daily, even to the point of prayer.

I hope this works and no one is offended by this combination but for me this was a wonderful time for reflection on how these two topics really are one. Thank you!

I choose to tag:








Thanks be to God!

  1. Although I shy away from participating in these types of sharing activities, I really enjoy reading responses from those who do. It provides me with insight into the hearts of others. Thank you for sharing such sweet pieces of your life!

  2. So, dear friends, these are the rules slightly altered to condense time and space.


    I love this phrase!!!!!!!!! condense time and space... you sure are adorable... no wonder you have lovable and warm grandchildren... because you are warm and lovable yourself!

  3. It's wonderful how these things can be quite revealing. I've just read here how you say that you can't remember a time when you didn't want to help others - this is just so lovely, Cathy, and how the same thing is still happening as you go about helping others - and what you have already done with your own family is now beginning to bear fruit as you enjoy your grandchildren.
    You really are an inspiration, Cathy, because you're not down on yourself, you celebrate life and you celebrate God's goodness and spread God's love. Coming here is a joy.

  4. Thanks, Cathy! Will do the meme tomorrow. It's been a long day.


Your insightful comments are appreciated and I want all to feel comfortable and welcome here.
