I enjoy reading several Catholic Mom blogs.  Jen at Conversion Diary has a weekly Friday event called 7 Quick Takes.  Today I wanted to link to some posts that made me think, made me want to do something, made me cry, made me outraged or inspired me.

The first quick take I read this post today.  I am currently processing what I want to say about it but I encourage you to go read it yourself.  You do not have to be Catholic to appreciate the information that is in it.  Right is right and wrong is wrong.  We all know it when we see it.  I’m going to go scream now.  To contact this congressman, click here.

The second post I’d like you to see is here.

The third quick take deals with Notre Dame issue.

The fourth quick take is from A Happy Catholic and the entry is on the show House.   I too enjoyed that episode and the internal dialouge.  I thought it was well done

I liked this fifth post because it had to do with a conversion and since I too am a convert I agree with her take on it.

This blogger’s entire lenten series has been a blessing to me each day.

And lastly, a missing priest.

So Proud of Our Son March 29, 2009

Last night my 10 year old son was so excited about the Kids Choice Awards or whatever they are called being on.  The Jonas Brothers were going to be on, Dwayne whats his name was hosting (from Escape From Witch Mountain), and the Pussycat Dolls!  I asked him who the Pussycat Dolls were and he didn’t know (but I do).  What are the Pussycat Dolls doing on a kids awards show?  I told him that they were inappropriate for his growing young man’s eyes and that when they came on I would have him change the channel and when they were done he could change it back.  No questions asked.  He did just as I asked without complaint.  I love that boy. He motivates me to be a better mom and that is what I learned this week.

around the internet, I happened upon this site, exactly the type site I’ve been wanting to find to find discussion about media bias.

I’ve got mine.  I got them at Mardel’s.  I am going to send the to President Obama, my state’s Senators and my state’s Representative as well as to some media members.  I’d encourage you to send them to everyone you can think of too.

…::: News and Announcements :::…  
Dear Friends,

March 31st, 2009

Get a red envelope. You can buy them at Kinkos, or at party
supply stores. On the front, address it to

President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington , D.C. 20500

On the back, write the following message.

“This envelope represents one child who died because of an abortion.

It is empty because the life that was taken is now unable
to be a part of our world. Responsibility begins with conception.”

We will mail the envelopes out March 31st, 2009.

Put it in the mail, and send it. Then forward this event to
every one of your friends who you think would send one too.
I wish we could send 50 million red envelopes, one for every
child who died [in the U.S. ] before having a chance to

It may seem that those who believe abortion is wrong are in
a minority. It may seem like we have no voice and it’s
shameful to even bring it up. Let us show our President and
the world that the voices of those of us who do not believe
abortion is acceptable are not silent and must be heard.

Together we can change the heart of The President and save
the lives of millions of children.

…..whatever things are true, whatever things
are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are
pure, whatever things are lovely…think on these things.
