Events, An Update and A Giveaway!


Our annual Traditional Family Weekend is around the corner. Below is the invitation and you are welcome to take part!

Here is the promotional video (Friday Night Potluck and Social will take the place of the dance.)

Also, coming up this fall, in this locale, is the fantastic Flint Hills Shakespeare Festival!  It is a great event and all are welcome!

This is the 2018 Promotional Video to give you an idea….

And here is an older post that I wrote about the Festival with pictures, etc.

An Update on Rosie…

Through the help of a couple of very good Catholic doctors, it turns out Rosie most likely has POTS. This stands for Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. It is a condition that affects circulation (blood flow). It involves the autonomic nervous system (which automatically controls and regulates vital bodily functions) and sympathetic nervous system (which activates the fight or flight response).

From Cleveland Clinic…

Each case of POTS is different. POTS patients may see symptoms come and go over a period of years.

There are various forms of POTS. The most common are:

  • Neuropathic POTS: Peripheral denervation (loss of nerve supply) leads to poor blood vessel muscles, especially in the legs and core body.
  • Hyperadrenergic POTS: Overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system
  • Low blood volume POTS: Reduced blood volume can lead to POTS. Low blood volume can cause similar symptoms that may overlap in neuropathic and hyperadrenergic POTS


Her recovery from this bout has been painfully slow but we are getting progress. Rosie has not had a “seizure/episode” for a while now. The “up times” are getting longer and she can do some real work outside (which she loves)! By late afternoon and evening Rosie checks out and goes to her room where she reads, prays, crochets and listens to audio books. She would love to take part in what goes on in the family at these times, but not yet….

Anyway, I wanted to give you an update and thank you for your prayers. Please continue to pray for us as we continue on this journey! Thank you!

And Now…..A Giveaway!

The winner will receive this lovely  handcrafted Rosary Bracelet set. Take your Rosary wherever you go!

Also included is this lovely doily made by Rosie.

Just leave a comment here, and your name will be added! It is always great to hear from you. 🙂

I will announce the winner next Wednesday, June 5th!

Parents should remember this: children can get along happily without constantly demanding their parents’ attention, provided there are regular times when Dad or Mom have no concern except being with them.

If we are riddled with anxieties instead of leaving them in God’s hands, we can’t offer our children that kind of time, and they will never feel secure in our love, no matter how many expensive gifts we lavish on them. -Fr. Jacques Philippe, Interior Freedom

There’s nothing complicated or magical about learning to be kinder; it just takes greater attention to the things that you do and how you do them. The Hidden Power of Kindness shows you how to become more aware of even your most offhand daily actions. You’ll find simple, step-by-step, and spiritually crucial directions for how to overcome the habitual unkindnesses that creep undetected into the behavior of even the most careful souls.

From the thousands of personal letters by St. Francis de Sales comes this short, practical guide that will develop in you the soul-nourishing habits that lead to sanctity.
