My reflection today:

“ Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.

Circumstances and situations to color life, but you have been given the mind to choose what the color will be.“ – John Homer Miller

There has been a lot that has happened these days. This tropical storm has added many stresses to our lives. Some people are being stretched to the limit with no power, no internet.
And yet, everything was put into perspective for me today. Last night a family called to say their mother was in hospice would I be able to visit.  This woman volunteered her time to do the newsletter for St. Joseph School many years ago. They also wanted Father to perform the sacrament of the sick. Thank God for Father Tom! About an hour after I left she died. It certainly puts everything into perspective for me. Please keep this family in your prayers..?
