All Kinds of Random

1) I'm sorry I haven't been commenting as often as I used to.  Lately I've felt like I don't have anything useful/insightful to say or people have already said it for me! :)  But I'm still reading and praying for all of you!

2) Have any of you ever heard of the Ins.titute of Catho.lic Cult.ure?  It's a non-profit organization that's dedicated to adult catechises (am I spelling that wrong?  It looks weird to me and blogger's telling me two different things).  I am totally in love with it...they have free audio programs that I listen to while I do the dishes, and I've learned SO MUCH!  Here's a sampling of some audio programs they have on their website: Shadows of the Virgin: Holy Women of the Old Covenant, The Cleaving of Christendom: The Story of the Church of the Second Millennium, and Natural Law: The Image of God in the Heart of Man (couldn't help but think of you, Leila, when I read that title! lol).  I'm so, so grateful for this organization! :) (No, I didn't get paid to say any of this.)

3) In cycle news, I had 7 days of fertile CM, skipped a day, and had 6 more days of fertile CM (and counting), so I have no clue what's going on.  I thought maybe I was having a split peak, but this is a heck of a lot of mucus (at least for me)! lol  I have a doctor's appointment tonight to discuss my blood test results, so I'll bring all of this up with her.

4) My husband told me about a conversation he had with our friend M.A. that was really encouraging to me.  She was spending some time with two of our friends who are both pregnant, and she said the conversation was all about pregnancy/baby stuff.  She realized then that most of us need to be more sensitive during our conversations, because what if a woman had been there that couldn't have children? :) YAY!  I'm so glad SOMEONE is thinking that way!  Spread the wisdom around, M.A!

Well, I had planned to write more, but I have to leave for my appointment!  I'll be sure to let y'all know how it goes! :)


  1. That's amazing that they are thinking this way. Wow, maybe people are becoming more sensitive? Maybe all of our blogging is helping? Ha! I pray it is.

  2. Wonderful about your friend's sensitivity! I hope that your appointment went well!

  3. I looked at the website for the Ins.titu.te of Catho.lic Cul.ture this morning. Thank you for bringing this to my attention! I am always in the search for new material to strengthen my faith. Thank you!

  4. Hope it goes really well!!! :)

    Thanks for sharing that website, I'm definitely going to check it out!!!
