Mother's Day Weekend -
Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers, in the many facets of motherhood, who read this blog. It's been a while since I simply blogged and talked a bit about family. Our lives have taken on some major changes since I've last posted about the family.
The biggest change is Nicole going back to work as an RN at a nursing and rehabilitation facility. It's been a big change for me mentally and emotionally not only as one who has viewed himself as the sole provider of the family but I am also now in charge of herding kids a full 3 days per week!!
Life is extremely hectic with so many kids and so many activities to keep straight. I continue to work as a life insurance agent with the Catholic Order of Foresters, operate Real Life Rosary, and write, working on any one of 10 books on my list of books to write before I die.
My brother, Fr. William Hahn, is currently in Israel and then on to Scotland as part of his 3 month sabbatical. We certainly miss having him around and continue to pray for his safety and spiritual growth.
Over the weekend, in addition to celebrating Mother's Day, we also celebrated Catherine's 10th birthday. She's come a long way in 10 years and has been through more than any of us will ever experience health-wise. Thank you to everyone who has prayed from the beginning and who continue to pray for her and us.
Of course, like your life, everything is more complex and hectic than the preceding paragraphs make it sound. However, sometimes simplifying makes things simpler..here's some pictures from the weekend....
