You know one of those days where you take all three children to the grocery store in the bitter bitter cold whilst looking like a homeless person -- this is the important part-- because it's hard to look "cool" or "put together" when you're freezing your buns off and all you want to do is wear ten sweaters and the old man hat you've got in the closet because someone took your cool hat for one of their games where they are wingless birds whose parents died? While at this store gathering your weekly goods so you won't ever have to leave your house again, have you ever look in your purse and realized you left your wallet on the couch because you need your debit card to order pizza because you had no food in the house? Did you then realize that you only had 6 dollars and 10 cents worth of hard cold cash in your wallet as you stand at the check out line with 3 belligerent children who've knocked over most of the candy displays? Did you then have to play survivor with with your food, narrowing down all $100 worth of groceries to 6 dollars and suddenly become indignant at the price of food these days? HAve you found yourself scrounging through your pockets and counting out the pennies? Did you then decide that most essential was the baguette and the parmesan cheese? No? Ok, me either.
In other more important news, many of readers probably know today is the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade. I know most women in this country celebrate this day as a hard earned liberation from the consequences of sex, some feel compassionately that it ended many unsafe abortions and helped women. But there are still some of us women who mourn the 55 million lives lost in abortion over the last 40 years. I am praying today that our country recognizes the dignity of all the unborn, not just those that come when we want them to come. There are more eligible parents waiting adoptions than there are abortions every year. Every aborted baby is wanted in this country. So proud of women the women I know who are fighting on the front lines for a culture of life and truly caring for the whole woman! Consider supporting Centro Tepeyac or Aid for Women on the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade!
