the sorrowful mother

well, here she is, my patron saint for 2009.
i didn't choose her, she chose me.
as my children get older, sassier and harder to deal with,
i have a feeling that she is the only one who could possibly understand
and the only one, besides her SON, who could be of any help to me.
many of the problems here are ones that i have created,
others are inevitable,
after all, original sin is like a disease.
however, with God's grace
and a little help from her, i am sure
that together, we can restore some order around here.
