I felt so lucky to go to a presentation of relics. He brought over 100 first class relics. Including a portion of the true cross and some of Mary's veil (2nd class, obviously). I said a quick prayer before entering. Something like, one saint speak to me and the first one I saw was Blessed Anna Marie Taiga. She is a patron of mothers and housewives. Perfect!!

I wish I could be more consistent in posting these every week. Jen gives good inspiration.....
1. I watched some of A Place at the Table documentary on Netflix. We watched the producers on the Daily Show talk about it and I was intrigued. It got me kind of depressed though. Food insecurity is a complex issue.
2. It led me to look up the town, Jonestown MS. In the documentary, they said this town didn't have a decent grocery store and a lady drove to Batesville to get fruit and vegetables. The graphic in the doc showed that Jonestown was west of Batesville but I didn't believe it but Google Maps proved me wrong.
3. So of course I had to put Jonestown into Zillow to see what real estate is like around there. I was blown away to see you could get a foreclosed 3/1 house in Clarksdale for $19,500. Um, most cars cost more than that. Then I found me dream retirement home in Marks, MS. A 9 bedroom estate on 6 acres, 45 miles from Oxford, for $425,000. Much, much different than California real estate.
4. It has only been one week but I'm loving being a dance mom. Here is hoping Anna will keep loving dance class. She practices her ballet to "I could sing of your love forever". I mean can it get any cuter!! But check these out:
