I've actually been keeping up with one NYR.
Lia from HomeFront Six came up with this.
Footprints in the Sand
We are going to read the Bible in a year.
I did this a long time ago when Frankie was a baby. You couldn't put him down for anything. I can see now indulging that quirk has set me up for a lifetime of nonsense, but at the time......
Anyway, I spent many evenings on the couch, Frankie dozing on my chest and me, reading the Bible.
I told someone I was doing this and they said "Where are you going to buy a Bible and how you can be sure it's for Catholics?"
"Hello? I own a Bible, thank you very much."
"Oh. How are you going to find it in your house?" The renovation continues to cause much chaos and I wasn't that organized before it began.
"It's in the bookcase, top shelf. I have always been able to put my hands right on it." It's a little misshapen. I stick stuff in it. Prayer cards. Notes from Father Mahoney. There are flowers from Mama Kelley's funeral and from Marie's (my mother-in-law, a lovely woman), etc. So I have to hold it carefully.
Anyway, I've been keeping up.
