Happy Easter, and happy birthday Mum and Dad!


O felix culpa, quæ talem ac tantum méruit habére Redemptórem! O happy fault, which gained for us so great a Redeemer!

I hope and pray that you all had very happy and blessed Holy Weeks and Easters!

Today is my mom's birthday, and, since I never did a post for my dad (his birthday was on Ash Wednesday and I gave up internet for most of Lent), I'll do his today as well.

Thank you, both of you, for being such wonderful parents. You've both taught me a lot.

Dad, thank you for giving me some of the best advice I've ever received...keep God first in your life, and the rest will fall into place as it's supposed to. Thank you for giving me my sense of humor (I think...haha), for always believing in me, and for teaching me so much...from long division to how to throw a baseball to how to navigate life.

Mum, thank you for teaching me by your example that to be kind to everyone, no matter how they appear, is a wonderful thing. Thank you for always listening to me with a patient, objective, and humorous ear, for giving me so much invaluble advice, for being an example of the sort of mother I hope to be someday, and also for teaching me so much...from how to knit to what to do about my myriad problems, both fleshly and ghostly (haha).

Thank you both for always being so supportive towards me, and for always encouraging me to be creative. Most of all I'm thankful that you're both very fervent in our Faith. I love you both!
