Happy New Year!

Today, on this World Day of Peace*in the Catholic Church, I’m reminded of the beautiful gifts I’ve been given.  I was able to spend the day with my family. We attended mass, ice fished, made snap circuits, ate cookies, constructed a lego house and read books.  Not every family is able to do those things – especially in a peace-filled place. 

My children laughed and played today. My husband did something he loves to do.  I watched these things happen, as their mother and his wife.  This New Year I hope to remember that peace is a gift.

*Pope Francis’s message for this year’s World Day of Peace – Nonviolence: a Style of Politics for Peace.
