Our group is getting better every week. More moms are coming on a regular basis so we’re becoming friends.
Last week we had a great time doing some arts and crafts for Thanksgiving. I must admit that us moms had way more fun than our little ones. It was a great excuse to talk, laugh, share, complain and pray together.
Today our little giraffe, space ranger, gladiator, Princess and goblin and puppy gave us a treat by parading the hallways of St. Edward’s parish. Hope you enjoy the pictures. There is also a video on Facebook!
Enjoy this nice long 3 day weekend!
We look forward seeing you the following Monday. Have a wonderful weekend.
The feast of the Holy Rosary was established by Saint Pius V on the anniversary of the naval victory won by the Christian fleet at Lepanto, October 7, 1571. The victory was attributed to the help of the holy Mother of God whose aid was invoked through praying the Rosary.
The celebration of this day invites all to mediate upon the mysteries of Christ, following the example of the Blessed Virgin Mary who was so singularly associated with the incarnation, passion and glorious resurrection of the Son of God. From the Christian Prayer(Liturgy of the Hours)
Below is a coloring page that features the holy rosary. It is a fun way to discuss and teach the kids the Rosary.
Love and hate is a learned behavior. We have to be the voice in their head that reminds them that they are special. The first years of their life kids are like little sponges. They absorb the world around them. They live to love but also see grown people fight and parents scold.
We must teach kids to respect and to love one another, no matter the differences. Let us also teach them to have gratitude towards their community, friends, themselves and god.
My dad use to say if you “Si no vives para servir , no servis para vivir” (If you don’t live to serve, you don’t deserve to live). It sounds a bit more subtle in Spanish. The truth is that part of being a parent is teaching our kids not to be selfish and instilling in them the desire to help others. To me, their is no greater joy then seeing my children smile and laugh as long as they are laughing with kids and not at them.
As our kids get older and frustrate us, let’s refrain from putting them down. That too becomes a learned behavior, that they will repeat at school to their classmates.

Sentada en mi ventana, viendo y escuchando lo lluvia caer, viene a mi memoria una canción muy hermosa y triste a la vez, compuesta por el artista Ali Primera, es una canción en protesta.
Video Las Casas de Carton, Canta Los Hermanos Primera.
Cuanta gente en nuestros paises latinos y en muchos otros paises viven en condiciones de extrema pobreza, sin educacion, sin alimento, viviendo en casas de carton, sin poder elegir, sin ser recordados, sin ser pensados, y aun asi viven, y a duras penas con una sonrisa en sus labios. Son personas con corazones llenos de amor, dispuestos a dar lo que no tienen, trabajadores, con sueños y anhelos.
Hay muchas organizaciones que ayudan a estas familias, unamonos a ellas, seamos parte de la felicidad de ellos, enseñemos a nuestros hijos la Caridad, ese don tan especial, a que sean desprendidos y aprendan a dar sin medidas.
Unamonos en oracion por los mas necesitados, en especial por los niños, para que tengan un futuro mejor, para que no sean abusados, para que obtengan una buena educacion y sobre todo para que reciban siempre Amor, Amor puro y sincero que ellos como todos los seres humanos merecen.
Hay siempre una esperanza para aquellos en esa condicion, y es que Dios dice que de ellos es el Reino de los Cielos. Amemos a nuestros hermanos sin importar su condicion económica y estemos dispuestos siempre a ayudar.
En el amor de Dios.
