It’s FYI Wednesday and I have asked fellow Catholic moms for questions that they might have on such topics as motherhood and spirituality, children’s spiritual development, finding time for yourself, or just to learn more about Spiritual Direction; here is the latest question asked by Miriam:

Q: I need some advice, we had a get together for my nieces 17 birthday and her friends were there I caught my husband staring at one that is 19. I confronted him when we got home. He doesn’t deny looking at her but says he wasn’t thinking anything bad. Am I the crazy one for being mad?

A: I hear ya’ loud and clear!

I am a wife, (30 years), mom of four, and many other things in my life. What you are going through is something I have gone through, and many others moms as well.  I have been there! Sometimes we get lost in our role of mom and begin to loose ourselves, our calling.

Today’s first reading speaks of “the last hour”; and it’s interesting that it is also New Year’s Eve!

Could it be that God is calling you to make positive changes? You have already identified some areas you wish to work on.

Could you see this as an opportunity to begin open loving honest communication with your husband.

Could God be calling you to care for the temple of His Holy Spirit and also model this for your children the same?

God is head over heels, (heals), in love with us. He wants us to heal the broken places on our life. Create the best atmosphere for our world.

God bless!
