Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival

Hello, and welcome to Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. We are a group of Catholic bloggers who gather weekly to share our best posts with each other. To participate, go to your blog and create a post titled Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. In it, discuss and link to your posts for the week--whether they deal with theology, Catholic living or cute Catholic kids. I'm mostly a book blogger so my posts are generally book reviews, some Catholic, some not. Make sure that post links back here. Once you publish it, come back here and leave a link below.

We also have a yahoogroup; signing up for it will get you one weekly reminder to post.  Click here to sign up.

My nest is full again, for a little while, sort of.  My college daughter is home for the week; of course she has plans to go here with this one and there with that one, but that's what they are supposed to do at that age.

Question of the Week:  For what are you most thankful this year?

My Answer:  For my family, that we are together and safe and particularly that my Dad is still with us and in reasonably good health.  I went to two wakes/funerals yesterday for the parents of friends and realize that my Dad's days are numbered, but,as the readings at Mass have reminded us the last few weeks aren't all our days numbered?

This week has been a slow blogging week but I did review Walking with Mary, which I recommend.

    Thank you for hosting. Like you I thankful for family and friends. I am also thankful the grace we each have received.
    Blessings to all,
    Michael/To Love and Truth

  2. Thanks for hosting, RAnn! I have so many things to be thankful for, so I'll just say that I'm most thankful for God's loving providence.

  3. I am most thankful for my parents, who have passed on, who gave me life and brought me up Catholic, and for my brothers and sisters and my husband.

  4. Hi, RAnn! I'm back, and hopefully I'll be more productive in the future .

  5. What am I thankful for? I'd better get this down before I change my mind:

    I'm thankful for who I am, warts and all. I'm thankful for my likes, dislikes, interests, knowledge, aspirations and circumstances.

  6. I'm thankful that my mom is still with us after several illnesses. I'm really thankful to have a house this year. We had to sell our house 3 years ago because we could no longer afford it. We stayed in a little house and lived out of two pods for 10 months with two teenagers and 4 pets (on white carpet). We were able to buy a (cheapish) house 2 years ago and moved in on Thanksgiving Day. I'm still so thankful to have my own place and thank God every day. It's is easier to give charity than to accept it from others. But I learned a lot and am thankful for it.

  7. Hi RAnn...I'm most thankful for the opportunity to be a stay at home mom. There are days when I miss the workplace (and the paycheck!) but I adore being a full time mom.
