Writing about myself.

Why do I think it is important?

I began this blog in particular to write about myself, and from time to time to share 'my story'.  I wonder why?

I have a friend whose mother suffered a stroke a couple of weeks ago - she no longer speaks or communicates except through signs.

  1. Your story is important in many ways; first, it serves as an example to us. Of what will depend on the reader. Second, it serves as a cautionary tale for those not paying attention to the children or who think that rampant homosexuality is just fine. Third, your dedication to Him who loves us is a wonderful witness in this crappy world. Fourth, your art is beautiful and we're fortunate to be able to see the pictures. Fifth, you provide a haven for those who want to make snarky remarks about one thing or another. Sixth, you show by your example of being kind and loving all, how Christians should be in this world. Seventh, you also provide a service for those who are against the Church, by forcing them to read the trainwreck (in their view) posts about Church teaching.

    Have you thrown up yet?

  2. What Nan said. Bottom line for me is, your writing helps me--a lot--in the struggle to live the Catholic faith as one of the "walking wounded" (i.e. anyone serious about rooting out personal sin). You put the truth out there instead of dancing all around it, shining the Light of Christ into some very dark corners. Too many who should be protecting us or at least standing up for us deny the problems and ignore the suffering. As for being snarky, I would be weeping helplessly if I didn't know about the twinkle in your eyes! The grotesque is laughable, but it's bound to be gritty,eh? And of course you write your blog for yourself, but you regularly put the words to thoughts and feelings that your readers need expressed. God bless you, Terry. This blog is a work of mercy--comfort of the afflicted, instruction of the ignorant, derision of the ridiculous. :D
