If my calculations are correct, my Clare would have been born August 15th. Today she would have been 1 month old. The due date passing didn't affect me as much as this day. Knowing I should be well into the swing of having my baby, and I do not.

Today, was the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows.

You might call your god coincidence, I call mine, Jesus.

I found myself giving a talk to our Mother's Ministry group on middle school and teens and what we can do before those days to build up strong Catholic young people.

I was weepy today. I was soft and vulnerable and I really didn't feel like myself.
