Catholic Woman’s Almanac {CWA} Vol. 25 The Mostly Silent Edition

My loverlies, this will be short. Not because I don’t have alot to say, but because my hands are tired of talking to the keyboard. I have been slathering Ben Gay on them daily (not a good look), wearing gloves and alternating with cold and heat. I am trying to see the bright side and use this as a writing exercise (PUN!) where I have to be succinct and meaningful in as few words as possible.

Link up over at Plain Grace (formerly Suscipio) and meet other wonderful, faith-filled women sharing their week.

Gratitude
::Your understanding
::Your prayers
::New friendships
::Old friendships

Praying
::My hands – they hurt. I think it’s all the work, writing, and typing I have been doing of late. Not to mention knitting and making rosaries. I do so much with my hands and I can’t bear the thought of having to stop doing these things, even for a while.
::Special intentions. I am praying a whopper of a novena. The 54 day grande dame novena, in fact called the Rosary Novena to Our Lady. I am doing this with my friend Tiffany. We are at the Thanksgiving part of the novena. I will share with you soon how I am praying this in the hopes that it helps you.
::My Lay Dominican brothers and sisters. Especially one who just made perpetual vows and passed a week later. His name, A. I don’t know who he is and he wasn’t in my chapter, but we pray for each other.
::Peace. I need peace.
::Balance at work. I’m getting slammed and I need help – none in sight as of late.
