Quarantine Blessings… Food and Beach!

… Where to begin!

Dear all my American Friends…

Last evening, for the first time in- are you ready – 63 days, we ordered delivery. No restaurants are open. There is no such thing as “curb side pick up”. We got Caprese Salad with Prosciutto, gnocchi, margherita pizza, fried mix of things, and spaghetti fruiti di mare. I am quite sure I just spelled it all wrong, but LOOK AT IT!

And then y’all, the Magic happened. After dinner, walked out of our Parco without papers, and walked to the beach. IT WAS GLORIOUS. We saw people that were NOT our family. I picked up shells. The air was beautiful. The beach itself was filthy, but I got some good picks that I am pretty sure I cut the trash out of. LOL I’m not even complaining though because I needed this.

Yesterday, I said I was going to talk about Quarantine tips and trials. But I think I will move that to tomorrow. I need to think about it and make the post honest, but positive. We know who our God is. Catholic families are strong. And we are gonna get through all this with each other’s help.

Yesterday we counted a lot of blessings. I mean – the lawn people even came. It’s like a Q2020 Miracle. LOL

God is great ALL THE TIME!
Love and Hugs,
LadyEm

Mark 16:9-15 Gospel Reflection

Dear Ones,

I hope this post finds you well. I’m having trouble finding my blogging voice during this Pandemic. LOL I mean – Pretend I know what day it is… and pretend today is April 18th? Sigh.

Today is day 54 of quarantine for me. I’ve lost track of days, my brain and many other things. Lol sigh. I need to give an update on how we are doing and I will soon.

For now though, please check out my Gospel Reflection over at Catholicmom.com from Yesterday, April 18th. LOL

It’s one of my favorite stories about Jesus rebuking the Apostles who didn’t know who he was.

Here is a A little snippet of my post:

And as I bow my head in shame, it occurs to me…how many times has God called on me, and I did not hear Him? How many times has God tried to teach me a lesson that I did not learn the first time? How many times has God tried to comfort you and you did know Him? 

God is with us in every flower, friend, sunset, stranger’s smile, in every sweet memory. He is with us. He will never leave us, even if we don’t see Him. God always keeps His word.

I hope you like the post. I really love sharing my love for the Gospels. Also – and funny enough, I’ve been posting videos updates on Monday. It helps my family and friends at home to see that I am ok. Only this week, I posted it on Wednesday. I am telling you my brain is clueless of what day it is. Sigh. I do mention the Gospel in Luke, where Jesus was walking with the two Apostles on the way to Emmaus, and they had no idea who He was. Sigh. So much like our humanity. Anyway – I do share my videos on my blog page on FB. Here is this week’s update/video.

I am off to bed because it’s late in Italy. I will be back to blab your heads off soon.
I promise you I have lots of ideas.

Love and Hugs to all.
