When My Daughter Visits with my Two Grandbabies

When my daughter visits with a one-year-old and a two-month-old, I get next-to-nothing done. The computer sits on the office desk, quiet. The light on the motherboard is off. The keyboard - unattended.

I'm playing with babies and cooking and washing and drying and grabbing a nap when I can get it. Everything gets turned upside-down.

And I realize that it is one more season in life in which to practice my Catholic Faith.

I used to wonder how anyone could really "pray without ceasing" - life is too busy for that.

But I didn't realize that the busy life is prayer.

He's still there, and I'm talking to Him more than ever. this child to grow into a deep love for you. me to be the grandma he needs. my grown children and my tiny grandchildren to see You when they see me.

The busy life... is prayer.
