Couple memories and some prayers

Catching up with Catholic Carnival here... my favorite sacramental memories are, of course, the sacraments themselves.  :) Other than that... I remember my daughter Cecilia sneaking up to the pumpkins by the altar during her little sister's baptism.  Wish I had a picture of that...

I do, however, have a picture of this.

That's the after pic.  Here's the better "before":

Having been through quite a few sacramental receptions, we decided to make the latest one more exciting by forcing the guests to write poetry: a random topic was started and the paper was passed around, everyone adding too lines.  The end results were very humorous...  if I can dig them out of hiding I might add a few lines.  :)

As for today's question: yes, I prayed the Liturgy of the Hours regularly through high school and college.  I loved reading the different scripture passages morning, noon, and night, with special selections and prayers for each liturgical season.  It was the only the distraction of motherhood that made me stop.  I hope to start again someday... meanwhile, I squeeze prayers between errands and picking up toys. 

O God, come to my assistance!  
O Lord, make haste to help me!
