Coming up to the microphone in my one-piece Catalina swimsuit:
Hi! My name is Kathy, and I am from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. For those who may be geographically challenged, it hangs above the mitten-shaped lower part. It's really connected to Wisconsin but for some reason they didn't want us.
My goals: To make it to retirement in one piece, keeping my faculties intact, and happily living out the rest of my days with my one and only...someone I will meet here on CM, of course!
Alternate goal, in case the other one doesn't work out: To avoid living my life in quiet desperation.
What I love about being Catholic: The Triduum. It re-charges my spirit!
The Sign of the Cross: It reminds me every time who I am, and whose I am.
What marriage means to me: The opportunity to strive for selfless love. Unconditional love. Sacred love.
Fun fact: I am taking the ice bucket challenge on Thursday for a dear friend suffering from ALS. He's going to join me symbolically with a small glass of ice water over his head since he's paralyzed and on a respirator now.
