Today I am thankful for my parents and their decision to raise me in the Catholic faith. I am grateful for the theology and the doctrine. I am grateful for Mass on Sundays, even though my sweet children do not allow me to focus. I am grateful to wake up everyday in amazement of God's intelligent design. I am thankful to the faithful (and at various periods in their lives, not so faithful) Doctors of the Church and the saintly men and women that have gone before me. I am inspired by their words and actions, and by the thought that they had it tough also. I am thankful for the reminder that life is a journey and it is worth living on the peaks and in the valleys.
Have a wonderful week, everyone!
