A blogging friend I knew once did these "Monday Musings" on her blog ... after a terrible Wal*Mart experience this evening...

Dear Wal*Mart,

I love that you have $5 movies.  It's great for people like myself who don't have a lot of money and who love to own videos.  HOWEVER, after the 45 minute 'bonding session' I had with the 3 at my particular Wal*Mart, I am now morally opposed to the bin.  There is no way of knowing which movies are in there and how to find them.  The salesperson told me the 'might' have seen the movie I wanted - probably 5 months ago!  Not today, salesperson, not today!

Dear Target,

Thanks for having the movie I wanted without any 'bin diving'!!!

Dear Planet Fitness,

Today was hard, but thanks for being there for me today.  I'll do better tomorrow!

Dear Griffin Brother's,

I've been loyal, I've visited many times, but you still pulled one over on me.  You connected my brake lights backward - who even knew that was possible.  It is lucky for you that I was not rear-ended because of your stupid mistake.  Needless to say, I'll be going elsewhere from now on.

Dear Kar Kare & Lube,

Thanks for fixing my broken brake lights!  You're the best!

Dear Mike,

Thanks for being our waiter last night for Girl's Night Out at Bravo!  We enjoyed having you.  I appreciate the free 2nd drink...should have asked for my number if you were interested!  We'll never know if something could have come from it.

well, that's all for now...see you laters!

I Look Into my Inbox and What Did I See?

I receive the weekly notes from the Catholic Match Institute since my unsuccessful dabble in Online
Dating some time ago (link) and today's included the face of one of my favorite priests. A man who helped me become the Catholic woman, for better or worse, that I am today. He is doing a series of five videos for CM through Advent. The first two are below ... I encourage you to watch them and stay tuned for the next three! Fr. Ananias, OSB - what an Advent treat!

(almost) Another Year Older

Today is the day before my 32nd birthday. Thirty-Two years alive in this world and I sit down to try to actively think about what I've done in the last year, what I've accomplished to keep my mind from being overwhelmed by what I haven't done: marriage and kids.

When I was a kid, it snowed every single year on my birthday until I moved to Charlotte almost 9 years ago. Now this year, well it's the day before, but in Charlotte that's close enough to count I wake up to the below. So many of my birthday parties were cancelled or changed when I was a kid because of a giant snowstorm.

But anyway, back to the things I've accomplished this past year. I became a godmother, again, to a young woman who came into the Church through RCIA with her father. At 17 she was baptized and confirmed at the Easter Vigil.I was promoted at work. Twice. I've been given the opportunity to develop a new product offering and am going to spend the next year implementing it at a parish ju…

When Others Despise You

In general I appreciate when people like me, as I think most people do. For me, it's really hard when people dislike me, even if I don't have to be around them all of the time. I get anxious thinking about the next time we will be in the same location and if I'll be able to just kindly avoid them or if there will be an awkward confrontation. There's a line in scripture about how blessed we are when others despised us because they hated Him first. Him, being Jesus, of course.

But is that always the case? Am I applying a section of scripture to a situation to which it has no relationship? Am I using a passage of scripture to make myself feel better about the actions that I'm going to take, to justify it to myself and others? Am I manipulating the Lord's words to promote my own agenda in the name of the Lord?

I wonder this regarding many things. Passages like "The Lord will fulfill His promises" in relationship to my relationship status. Did He promise t…
