Diary of a Cranky Catholic

Gentle Reader:

Periodically, I consider dropping the blog. I'm busy, everyone is busy. But, the blog has been a great spiritual diary and tool for me. It's a way for me to yell: "Help!" to my blog buddies (who alone are a #1 reason for blogging) and here they come like the warriors they are, bringing help, good advice, insights and prayers.

I'm reading back thru some of my early posts and I can see how I've calmed down over time. Yes, I still get cranky but nowhere near as much as the early days of the blog. Yes, I still pick on Terry but don't look for that to change soon! LOL

Thank you to everyone who sticks around and puts up with me!

You are my favorite blogger online, and a special friend. God bless you.

I think of quitting all of the time too though.

Cathy, what if you helped one person besides yourself get to heaven!? It would have made all of your time and trouble worth it. I also enjoy it when you torment Terry. However I'm not too crazy about it when it's the other way around. hahahahaha

I think about dropping my blog at least once a day. (serious anxiety)
I think, "Who made me a spokes woman for the Catholic church? What do I know?

When I first started blogging I had a chip on my shoulder but not anymore.

Ditto to all the comments above. Maybe you would share your phone number with me sometime in the future. I keep threatening to call Terry but haven't done it yet. I would love to talk to you on the phone (so old fashioned!)

Clarification: I'm not old fashioned. I meant phone contact is old fashioned.

Good Lord in Heaven. How can an almost 65 year old woman in 3" pointy towed heels be old fashioned??

Cathy, keep on blogging!
Adrienne, I sooo envy you being able to wear killer heels with pointy toes. I would have to be "towed" because I couldn't walk; I have very cranky feet.

Melody - that's why they're called "Sunday sittin' shoes"

Cathy- AMDG, get your inner Jesuit on as you blog for the glory of God. The mercy of God softens our hearts to become more and more like His Son. I love the life of transformative grace!

/and I'm tired and babbling- keep it up! DMC, ftw.

"DMC ftw"???
Translation, anyone?

Divine Mercy Chaplet, for the win.

DMC is a prior reference from other posts with Cathy.

ftw is an internet/gaming reference.

Father: Thanks for providing the translation to Father-Cathy-God speak!
