To My Son Jordan, Thank You For A Brilliant Birthday.

Yes, I had to give Jordan a place on my blog. He was my chief photographer.  Jordan took his Mother up to New York City, carried her heavy gym bag throughout the city, from mid- town to upper West side, SoulCycle to Steps, back and forth on the subway. Down to Times Square,  as we watched Cliff Lee in the 5th, pitch @ Ruby Tuesday’s during 2013 All Star Game and boarded the train back home.  We were day 4-5th day in sweltering heat wave. But it is always sunny on my birthday. The concrete jungle of the Big Apple was hot as heck. The car stalled before we got on highway to NYC and we pushed it to the side waited 10 minutes. (BTW, his Mother is an old motor head, first car was a 326, 67′ Firebird)  He looked and said, “No way.”  I replied, “As soon as we get on 295 North, God’s Angels will take care of the car with their wings, let’s go.” He believed, as did I. We proceeded to Hamiliton Train Station exceeding the speed of 90 mph and boarded NJ Transit to Penn Station. Then as we got on the 11:05pm train back home as he had work the next day. We laughed so hard at some of the photos we took, I almost wet my skirt. ( Oh I had the back up camera, just in case the primary lost juice, it did.)

Thank you Jordan. God Bless You.  This was the best gift ever. No card necessary. I had a blast.  I do not want the summer to end.

I know you carry a heavy heart right now.  Just give it to God.  HE will take care of all your worries.  That is what I do. You just got to believe.

Rosary rallies on the Capital steps in Madison, Wisconsin are held Thursdays at 7 p.m. The hour-long public prayer was initiated on June 21 in reply to a call from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops for a “Fortnight for Freedom.”   In reference to Obama’s contraception mandate, 14 days of prayer dedicated  to remind people all throughout the United States about the importance of preserving the fundamental right of religious freedom.

Until our election in November the prayers will be continued  due to Americans plight for spiritual liberty, life and family in the United States.

Rev. Rick Heilman, pastor of St. Ignatius Catholic Church stated,

With elections come a lot of issues that maybe sometimes we tend to ignore because our lives are busy. In an election year, people are more sensitized to these issues, and there is a great need to call upon God.”

Amazing things are happening right here in this very place,” including the failure of “this whole nonsense of recalling this strong governor” (referring to Republican Scott Walker) and “now tapping our own Paul Ryan” as a vice presidential candidate.

No matter what his politics are, no matter whether you agree with them or disagree with them, he’s a Catholic son in the diocese of Madison who was tapped to be vice president,” Heilman told the crowd. “And he’s a good dad, he’s a good husband, and he needs our prayers.”

Agreed Father.
