~~~Today is the end of October the rosary month but it doesn't mean that all catholics had to stop praying the rosary. It was told by the Blessed Mother to pray the rosary daily. I got a rosary cd that I could play over and over again, 'cause it bother me none nor hubby too. In fact I love it rather than listening to those music that had sexual, malicious, violent connotation. Here are some websites you may explore about rosary.
Brief history of Rosary
~~~ This is the month Doreen passed away but join our God in heaven. We will missed here terribly since Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas is fast approaching. And many more family get togethers like baby showers, bridal showers, weddings, birthdays, house warming, reunions and our women getaways etc. Her dad in all honesty missed her so much that I couldn't let a single day without him in his side for emotional support and for somebody to pray with him when he feel so down.
~~~ Tomorrow is All Saints day the next day is All souls day. I chatted my niece just right now and she is ready to visit my parents and nephew grave. I told her not to bring my nieces and nephew since I know for sure it will be too hot and a lot of people visiting the cemetery. Tagging with her are 3 kids it will be a burden to her, and she will definitely get exhausted at the end of the day hehe.
~~~My niece is already in her 3rd year nursing second semester. How time flies sooner or later she will graduate soon, hubby and I are looking forward on that time to arrive. Today as we chatted, she told me she is already enrolled and that she is somewhat a little bit afraid because in this semester she will have medical surgical (thingy) and she added that if before they have 10 blocks after this MS what was left is just 5 blocks or less. I told her to first pray and secondly study hard. I told her that I believe in her capacity to endure how hard this course might be and if others can why she can't be. It boasted her morale after what I have told her. She said she is so overwhelm of all the books she just bought, it is not because it is all very expensive and thick but she said that she is already at a lost where to begin hehe. And so I told her what I have told her before, to have a study time every single night even if it takes an hour or two just read the notes. And never practice study cramp because it will lead to mental block in time of examination or quizzes (which I experienced when I took my cpa board exam 1986). The other issue that we chatted is about prayer. Because I asked her if she pray, and she told me yes indeed, when she woke up in the morning, when she goes to school, when she ride a tricycle or motorcycle, when she go out for gig with her friends and et all. And she added I don't pray like you, like praying the rosary and novena, I just laugh at her side notes, I told her that it is okay as long as she pray everyday and that means that she has a good communication with God everyday and that is what matters most and also attending mass. She said I don't have a problem with attending mass because I do attend every Sunday but with my prayer that is what I do. It giggles me when she do this because I felt that my first neice my first baby is grown up already hehe. She seems so innocent answering my queries for all she knew if she answered wrongly I will have a litany of sermon. But I treated her as grown up now and I let her slowly spread her wings because sooner or later I knew that she will fly high and find her horizons in life. And if that time comes I am so happy to let her soar and happy that I planted a mustard seed of faith in her simple and innocent life.
