My Blog is New,

But Just in case you have not heard,

  1. Mom's day away sounds amazing. I wish you all the best. Don't give up on your followers, I have a feeling they will increase. I am sharing your blogs with a friend who was teaching a friend to pray the liturgy of the hours. I am still on training wheels with my iPhone.

  2. Oh, I'm not giving up. I see a slow but steady increase in page views even if my stuff isn't the sort that generates tons of comments. Good luck with the iPhone office. Feel free to ask any question you have about how the prayers should go if you are not sure. Use any comment box.
    Thanks Debbie for the encouragement.
