"Do not yield to discouragement in the face of difficulties and do not abandon yourselves to false solutions which often seem the easiest way to overcome problems. Do not be afraid to make a commitment, to face hard work and sacrifice, to choose the paths that demand fidelity and constancy, humility and dedication. Be confident in your youth and its profound desires for happiness, truth, beauty and genuine love! Live fully this time in your life so rich and so full of enthusiasm."
"Let us look with greater hope to the future; let us encourage one another on our journey."
~ Papa Benedict XVI

Uniquely You

Have you ever really thought about how unique you are?  We are all made in the likeness and image of God but we are all so different.  There is no one else like you in this world.  Sure, we know people who are similar, but there is always a point where you veer off into your own ...whatever. A mom ...i know tons of them.  Catholic .... yep, know a lot of them too.  Homeschooling.... the list is getting shorter.  Military B.R.A.T.  ... now we're narrowing the field! Wait, did you attend ASU? ...no, the other one.  Do you love art?  and do you read non stop (well i don't either but i wish i could!) How many children do you have?  (no, i'm not being funny! I get asked this enough...)

People never cease to amaze me .... the beauty of the human spirit.  The soul.  No matter what you believe in, you can't turn your back on the Truth.  Its staring at you in the mirror. The likeness and image of God.  Each person you meet, your child, your spouse.  Right there, you are facing God.
