Holy Thursday

Holy Thursday is one of favorite holy days of the year in this house. We will be at the Cathedral tonight for the Mass and Procession, as they do it so beautifully. I found this photo of my mother and her sister as young women during Holy Week 1950, and I like to imagine it was a Holy Thursday as it would be warmer in Brazil, and there would be singing from the missal outside. I love the photo, for so many reasons.

Happy Holy Thursday!

Sometimes we are very thankful. 

Today I was very thankful for the fact that Husband hasn't taken out the snow tires yet. As the reader can see, they were needed.

Everyday Art

Number Seven is working this morning on a project for two people she loves.... and Ginny is the patient model.

In this house,
Art is everyday,
All day, any moment.

The paints don't get put away.
The pencils, crayons,
Paper, canvas, sketchpads,

There is love in this house.
Art as a gift of self,
to the ones we love.
