i am grateful that i had my dad for 54 years. he was our our hero! he would always be there when we needed him the most,esp. the teen age years. he would always greet everyone with such an open and happy smile. : he could remeber his grandkids and who the parents were of the great grand kids. he remembered what we could not remember.
i am grateful for my mom. she is the link holding us all together! she is 92.
dad and mom are the parents of 14 children. good Catholics!
Today I am especially grateful for our prayer group. It is a small but committed group of prayer warriors that begun about 11 years ago. A few of our members have passed on from this life but I am sure they are joining us from their heavenly home. The oldest member is 92 and still participates in daily Mass also. And I am especially grateful for the Fathers of Mercy who lead and guide us and offer us many devotions that we can take part in. Thank you Lord!
