St. Agatha...Feb 5
I am excited that today is St. Agatha's day. I remember when my Mom had breast cancer she was one of the saints I turned to for help. I chose her because she is also one of the saints for nurses so I felt a special bond to her. My prayers and thoughts worked. It's been a few years now and so far my Mom is fine.
I also am taking dh to church tonight. I told him that St. Agatha was a virgin and a martyr so the priest should be wearing red. I hope I am right. If not I may have to hunt him down after the service and ask why!
I got my paczki donuts in prepration for Lent. I buy them every year. They are soooo yummy. Tonight we are having potato pancakes because I don't like pancakes. Then it's up early tomorrow for ash wednesday service. I wish I could go to the one with the kid's for their school but I have to work and leave in the middle of the service. I hate doing that so I'll go early in the morning with dh and the youngest dd.
Hopefully I'll remember to pick up some Lenten devotion tracts at Mass tonight. Forgot on Sunday :(
