WELCOME! Here is my not-terribly-eloquent attempt to grow closer to God via... blogging. Unfortunately for you, I'm not sure what that means either. I guess we'll find out!

I'm 30 years old, married to an IT Guy and a stay-at-home-mom to two spectacularly gorgeous children. While we attend Mass on Sunday mornings, I spend the entirety of the Eucharistic Prayer focused on making sure the baby uses her crayons on the bulletin, not the pew

I'm so glad for this update (except for Italy, which I am just jealous of!!).

Oh, the clear thing is so big for me, too. Back in college (this is going back more than 15 years now, yikes) God and I had a little chat about me hearing Him. I was not good at it. At all. To the point I kept feeling like something was wrong with me. I would pray and try to listen...and nothing. And then I would fall asleep. Sigh. So I prayed at that point that if I wasn't going to "hear" Him, that he would just make it abundantly clear in my life when I was on the right track. The complete absence of nervousness when I got married was one example. Most recently it was when I got inexplicably let go from my job. It made absolutely no business sense, and I took that as a sign that it was time for a change. I had three amazing months of extra time at home with my youngest son, and managed to find the perfect job--great fit, more money, great benefits, top employer. All along I just had this prevailing sense of "Something is very right here" and that has continued since I started back to work. It's not that everything is sunshine and rainbows, but there is this undeniable sense of peace that I am where I belong, and I can only attribute that to God and His plan. I need that kind of clear reassurance and it has been a true blessing in the midst of big changes. Also...the time commitment/impact on my husband/kids has been a major issue holding me back from getting more involved at my church. I'm so happy for you that you're getting past that and going toward something so fulfilling. Someday, I tell myself...someday.
