The Adventures of Rosary Girl

There's Spider Man and Super Man, why not Rosary Girl?

Rosary Girl is my two year old granddaughter.  She enjoys touching and playing with everything on my dresser.  Her favorite object is a fancy box I keep my Rosary in.  She always has to open that and put on the Rosary necklace.  She prefers the rosary of many colors.  She gives me the plain black one.

Right now her praying the Rosary consists of 150 Hail Mary.  Then she dances around me in a liturgical dance consisting of kneeling, running around me, spinning around and sitting, while Grandma prays.

Then she races down the hall, like Superman in his cape, but she's flying around with a Rosary around her neck.  She doesn't have the web weapon that Spider Man has.  Her weapon is more powerful; it's the Rosary.

Today Rosary Girl's Adventures included chasing bubbles outside while grandma blew them in the air.  Then we played hide and seek.  It's odd how she can count ten Hail Mary's, but somehow when we play hide and seek, the numbers go "1...2...3...10."

It's not all fun and games for Rosary Girl.  She set the table twice today, and helped grandma make her bed. She even did two loads of laundry.  Whew!  That was a lot of work!
Maybe that's why her nap was four hours.  
God is good.  Thanks be to God.

The Third Death

Today as I was praying and walking through the cemetery , I came across a gravestone that I couldn't see due to the overgrown bush ...
