Travelling to Different Places Far and Near

I've been absent from blogging the past two months because of travel and transferring to a new house. My family and I went to different places in France and Italy, wonderful cities like Paris, and Rome, Lisieux, Assisi, San Giovanni Rotondo, and Lourdes the first half of April. Then we transferred to our new house which has been in the making for over a year! Home Sweet Home! Both were exquisite joys and never would have happened if not for my family!

The best part about our new house is the church is so close by, I have been able to walk to mass every morning and visit the Adoration Chapel afterwards. My prayer time has been truly enriched and I get to see my mom, who is a daily mass goer, every day. Another great thing is we live near my parents, and all my sisters and brother. My son has walked by himself to visit his cousins several times.

I feel surrounded by God's love and blessing everyday! But really, the greatest blessings are our family- the people we love, the people who love us, the people who are conduits of God's goodness and generosity to us! There is no value to traveling around the world, living in a beautiful house, if we do not have our family, our real family, and our brothers and sisters in Christ, to share it with!
