Issue #37 - Laundry, Mail and People Everywhere
From Laura's Desk
It is amazing how fast a week goes by, isn't it? Do any of you have a four day weekend with the holiday? Unfortunately we noticed that the 4th was on a Tuesday too late for my hubby to take off Monday. Alas, we will be splitting up the holiday weekend with firework viewing on both Saturday and Tuesday.
This past week I've been continuing my work on updating my website. I didn't think it would be this much work, but I realize now how long it has been since I've updated things.
The bulk of my work this week was on updating the Organizational Helps area. I think there are three big areas that plague most families: laundry, mail and keeping track of everyone's schedules (unless you have babies, then hopefully you can keep up with where they are at all times!).
If you don't have a good system, those things can really get away from you and make your life miserable.
Another consideration in this section is about your school
area. Are you making changes in where you school this year?

Today during Mass, Father talked about hospitality because the first reading was about when the three angels visited Abraham and Sarah and they hurried up and provided a meal for them. I always wondered how long all of that actually took. I mean, they had to kill the steer, butcher it and cook it in order to serve it, right? The passage makes it sound like the whole thing took about 30 minutes or so when in reality I don't know how it could have.
Anyhow, his homily made me think about a book I read before about hospitality. It's called
"A Life that Says Welcome" by Karen Ehman.
This was such a good book that I got it out and am going to read it again. In the book, Karen gives such great advice about the importance of hospitality and then goes on to give ideas on how to make it easy and doable. Sometimes we just over think the whole thing and make it harder than it has to be.
Hospitality can be as simple as a small gesture for someone.
Hospitality can be given to the people who live in your house!
Hospitality is something we all need to do on a daily basis for those we come in contact with.
I am really looking forward to rereading this book and I hope you'll join me. It would make great summer reading!
Well, thanks for reading and have a great Fourth of July! God Bless America!
