Everybody Home!!

For one dinner this week we had everybody home. Fun stuff. Mike is doing business in Michigan this week and staying with us. John and Anne came over for dinner too.

We had a nice dinner including the bread pictured above. (I didn't make it. Bought it.) Looks nice though, doesn't it?
And the above salads which I did make. Aren't those blackberries awesome? Sam's Club. and they were as yummy as they look.

But best of all, all my kids together at the table again. I don't know. Why do moms love having all the kids at the dinner table so much? Is it having all "my ducks in a row?" Or ducklings, as the case may be-- even though three of them are legal adults, two are college graduates, you know. Or is it just me? When all my kids are at the table I can hardly get the silly grin off my face. I guess it's the mom-thing. I look at them and all the satisfaction of being the mother of each one just fills me with gladness. Sweet contentment. God is good. Very good!

Denise Hunnell is the Catholic Living examiner. In the articles that she writes, Dr. Hunnell is often critical of others. At the same time, Dr. Hunnell often censors those who are critical of what she writes. She recently wrote about the president of Notre Dame. She apparently does not want her readers to read the following:

So, Denise Hunnell has written yet another article in which she suggests that someone else isn't a good Catholic. Why am I not surprised?

"More than 30,000 children under 5 die every day from preventable causes..." That is ten times the number of children that are murdered each day in the United States through legalized abortion. You write often about abortion, Dr. Hunnell, but you rarely, if ever, write about those children that die in poverty. Why do you suppose that is?

You're not fooling anyone, Dr. Hunnell. You may be anti-abortion, but you certainly are not pro-life.

Will someone tell me how I can delete the above nasty comment that has nothing to do with the post?

I know there is a way, but I do not know. Maybe just have your comments moderated from now on before they are posted? This would mean you would have to okay them before they get posted.
