March for Life-- Anybody going?

(last year's march)

We are in full swing now getting ready to leave tomorrow for the March in Washington. This year all my girls will come as well as my youngest son (Jim, Suzanne).

I'd love to meet anybody from the blogosphere who's going to attend. If I've "known" you for a while we can exchange cell numbers if you email me.

Last year I had the pleasure of meeting Denise from Catholic Matriarch in my Domestic Church. she is just as interesting in person as she is on her blog.

Tonight Anne (oldest daughter) is coming over to make signs. I'll pick the kids up from school about noon (right after Jim and Mary's finals) and we'll leave for the nine hour trip from there. This year we made an appointment to meet with a staff member at our legislator's office. Liz's classic question--- "You're not going to yell at him, are you, Mom??!" I assured her I would not and that I would be very respectful. (We have a very pro-abortion congressman.) Let's hope I keep my promise. Ha!

May God bless the March for Life. Safe travels for everybody. And may he also bless the thousands of other local events all over the country. We can pray wherever we are. I ask a special blessing on the 24 hour prayer vigil at our local Planned Parenthood. We have always participated in that rosary vigil until last year when we first went to the March. God bless Ann C. for organizing it every year.

May the Lord have mercy on our country.

Are you driving or catching a bus? Lynn and Maggie are going with St. Joe High School on several busses. I told Paul, "Next year, we're going!" Let me know if you want to connect with Lynn. She would love to see you all =)
