Today was a (mostly) excellent Mass day. Elsa got an A for behavior, as she ended up nursing and sleeping for the 2nd half of Mass, only waking up when I had to unlatch her to go up for Communion.
The other kids are always very well behaved, so I don't grade them.
The priest gave an excellent homily on anxiety and peace and not giving into worries and fears. It was exactly what *I* needed to hear, because this is me:
Today's current worry isn't about our job search and lack of job, or moving or Ben taking the bar. Oh no..nothing like that. Today's thing that is worrying me is that I have a pain on my hand, right over the bone, and there may or may not be a lump/bump. So, instead of thinking of the most normal and reasonable explanation, like oh..I hurt it or somehow slightly injured it while fixing John's scooter and wrenching it around, in my mind it is surely bone cancer, and I will have to wean Elsa, and then I will end up dying in 6 months anyway, and Ben will end up sleeping with Elsa, because she refuses to sleep alone and he will accidentally roll over on her and smother her and end up in jail and my other kids will end up in foster care where they will be abused and turn into delinquents.
Pretty impressive amount of worrying, huh?? Typing it all out, I can really see how ridiculous it all is. So, I really needed to hear the homily today.
This is what I wore to hear a much needed homily this Sunday.
Notice the classic looking off to the side, model pose. And, looking at this picture, I think I need to wear longer skirts to cover up my not-so-shapely knees. We actually don't have any full-length mirrors, so I never actually know what I look like from the thighs down. That's probably a good thing.
Shirt: Walmart..the pink sweater thing is attached/ part of the shirt. It's a one-piece deal
Skirt: thrifted from a long time ago
Shoes: give to me by a lovely neighbor 2 years ago
glasses: same as always, from zenni
