I almost slipped by this time but I once again thank Josephine for initiating this thread.

Lina, I wish you a very happy belated birthday. I am not on the site everyday and when I miss someone, please know it is never intentional.

This year for whatever reason, I received more phone calls from family and friends in and around Houston, personal e-mails, cards, emotes and messages from CM than ever before. Maybe some think this old buzzard has a very limited life expectancy. laughing

I want to share something that came to mind prior to Mass on Sunday morning and I shared on Facebook:

Sunday morning was another day where I once again thanked God for my many blessings. A man who appeared to be younger than myself was rolled in a wheel chair to the front of the sanctuary. It made me realize and again was a reminder how blessed I am to be able to get up from my pew, kneel, genuflect, participate in the ministry, volunteer my services, walk on my own, drive my truck and so many other things albeit a little slower.

After thanks to Our Blessed Lord, I sincerely thank each of you for the very kind birthday wishes. Let it be known, I treasure each and every one of you. We won’t always agree on every issue or topic but we can always kneel and pray in the same pew to the same God. I feel that is the important thing in our on-going path to salvation. At times, we will fall and fall again but we will never be defeated - ever.

May God richly bless each of you and may the Sacred Heart of Jesus always embrace you in His loving arms.

Let's remember to pray everyday for each other - even those who do us harm.

Love you all - sincerely. Praying hug rose

Sorry about your Astros.

Edward,

Thank you for the birthday wishes.

The Astros are getting what they deserve. Under different ownership, they decimated the farm system and other than three or four players, most of their free agent signings were busts. It is going to be a painful road back and overall the majority of Houstonians thought we were blackballed into entering the American League. Oh well, it is what it is. Hope we don't break the Mets 1962 record of losing 120 games.

Although they have started mediocre, I feel your Tigers and Nationals will be strong at the end. I was hoping the Lions would be coming to Houston to play the Texans this year but no cigar. I still can't figure how we beat them last year in their yard.

Hope you are able to do some traveling this summer and see some games or whatever your wishes.

Blessings always and hope you are feeling well. Praying Praying Praying

Marian,

Thank you for the kind words.

I know you have had to carry some heavy crosses in the past year or so. I also know you are a woman of strong faith. You will get through the rough times. You will continue to be in my prayer intentions each night.

Always remember - your CM family loves you.

Blessings always, Praying hug rose
