Wow, you guys. That was really helpful. And here I was thinking I was going to get lambasted from all sides!
I thought I would enjoy writing about this Church Stuff, but it's been difficult. Writing it out is good for the part of me that likes to organize and file things in my brain, but every time I hit publish I feel a little queasy wondering who I've annoyed and what I got wrong and what I should have said differently. So those of you who've left me "this is halfway interesting, sort of, I suppose" comments, I appreciate it. Really. I've liked reading your stories too, and super surprised at how many of you were in your own NDCFs.
I had another one going, but I didn't like how it was coming out. So this is all you get today, in fulfillment of my NaBloPoMo duties. I had a pretty hard day with Jackson and rearranging our entire living room (WHAT WERE WE THINKING) and now Phillip is home, which means I am free to zone out in front of the television. And television posts are more my speed.
But in case you didn't figure out from my moms group post, I am not a quitter! I have a few more things I want to write about church and choosing to be Catholic. It's been hard to figure out what to say, but I've been having some awesome conversations, online and off, and feeling stretched in my faith in a way I haven't felt stretched in a long time. I mean stretched in a good way. Like when you wake up in the morning and throw your arms over your head and yawn and arch your back and decide it's a good day to eat doughnuts for breakfast.
