Happy Halloween! The Wilkerson boys will be trick-or-treating as homemade cars. I'm not gonna lie, as you may know I am NOT a crafter/decorator/etc... It's just not in my blood. But, this year I got some inspiration, some baby wipe/baby diaper boxes and a roll of colored duct tape, then I made me some costumes. We went to our little downtown Redford Halloween party (which was kind of a bust to be honest, way too much standing around for our little guys) and a LOT of people told us the costumes were awesome. I felt real good about that.
You guys. This pope stuff. I swear. So much I could say, but I'm gonna say this. People are genuinely surprised when they are finding out what the Church actually teaches. While this could be total annoying (and frankly, kind of is) I like framing it as an opportunity to share with people. Because if people are this surprised, it's because we have been doing a crud job of teaching. And the good news is, those of us who are teachers have an awesome oppurtunity to teach. I can't tell you how many non-Catholics have been asking me Catholic questions ever since Pope Francis became pope. And that, my friends, ain't nothin' but awesome.
That was a long story- thanks for sticking with it.
That was six or seven years ago and 9 kids ago. I was single and hating it, but loving my nieces and nephews. Tonight should be great.
