Be Careful

When you are at Mass in the morning and feel so full of gratitude that you tell Jesus that you will offer him every act of love throughout the day to show how much you love Him, be very careful.  In fact, it’s probably best not to pray that prayer.  Because, amazingly, it ends up being one of the hardest days as a new mother with so many opportunities to love, and you realize that your love is measly and piddly and have to spend the entire day choosing to love because you told Jesus you would.  And, when your husband gets home from his first day back at work after paternity leave, you cry and tell him that this is way too hard.  And, then he has a chance to love you and show what an amazing man he is.

All because you were feeling grateful after Communion.  Watch out.
