Yes, I was just with my daughter in our new home along with all of our family minus only one of our 25! Hallel got to meet and spend time getting to know all of her new nieces and nephews, and they were all here! Ruth managed to have her baby girl, Joy, 5 weeks before Hallel came home for her home visit. And Maria was here and not in Virginia or on her way to their new base in Tacoma, Washington. There have been times in the past when they were too far away to try to come and see Susan/Hallel when she was in the States. We all marveled at how perfectly the timing was for this 5 days at home, and the fact that Nancy and Bill live in Kansas City and could bring her home... making our family complete! Definitely Holy Spirit in charge!
In her motherly solicitude, the Blessed Virgin came here,
to Fatima , to ask men not to offend God any more.
It was a mother's sorrow that obliged her to speak."
~ St John Paul II
