There's been so much going on lately that I've hardly been able to think!! This time last week, I was in Texas. Now I'm in Minnesota. Tomorrow night, I'll be back in Kansas.

It's good to travel and to see family members and friends again... I'm especially happy to be here in Minnesota, where my siblings live. But it will be nice to settle down at home again too.

I've been so constantly occupied with people lately, that although much is said and much is done, I don't get much of a chance to think (i.e. reflect). At home, normally, I can think while I do things, but lately when there IS a quiet and still moment (like this one while everyone is napping), I realize that I have little on which to ruminate. It's almost disconcerting! :)
That's partly why the recent posts have just been pictures.

Regardless... Today, my brother took the cassock - the visible, tangible sign that he's on the path toward the priesthood. I am so happy for him and so proud of him!! It's great to be around him and I love visiting with his fellow seminarians and the priests - there's just something about them that makes me wish I could stay with them always! LOL! :)
Virtuous lives/the sanctified are always so attractive... even disarming.

...Anyway, enough rambling from the Scatterbrain. Please keep my brother in your prayers as he casts off the old man and puts on the new! (And while you're at it, say a prayer for me too, would you? :))

Thanks and God bless!
