The Crack on the Noggin'

Gentle Reader: Has this every happened to you?

You have the world's crappiest day.

Consider the evidence:

* the boss spends the entire day (like every work day) making you think her dog's turd is of more value than you are,
* you spend 2 hours in the car trying to get home thanks to a snow fall,
* you are in a complete panic that the long and SLOOOOWWWWW commute is going to make you late for, or miss altogether, Mass on this Holy Day of Obligation

Then, you go to Mass and the liturgy washes over you like warm bathwater and you feel better.

Then, you come home and hear from a friend that his health is very seriously bad and realize that it could be worse. You remember times when it was worse, MUCH worse.

Jesus did not drop The Cross and run away did He?

Thanks for the crack in the noggin' Angel!

Change a couple of words around, and you've written a chapter from my life.

BTW, I know they are chosen at random, but some of the letters in the word verification come close to spelling an obscenity. Are you behind this? ;0)
