Reblog Wednesday: The Miracle Of The Notre Dame Fire — Traditional Catholic Femininity 🌹🙏🌹

I believe you are already aware of this no matter your religious beliefs, on Monday, April 15, 2019 the Notre-Dame de Paris (Our Lady Of Paris) Cathedral experienced a devastating fire. The 850 year old cathedral has been given many different restoration time frames – a professor of medieval cathedrals stating it would take about two decades to complete. It has also been said they will be closing it for about 5 to 6 years following the fire as it has weakened the cathedral. As of today there have been donations pouring in for the restoration, nearly $1 billion dollars.

In this combination of photos, flames and smoke rise as the spire on the Notre Dame Cathedral collapses during a fire in Paris, Monday, April 15, 2019. 

The post I share with you today from Trad Cat Fem brings you in great detail the history of the Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral. I invite you to read as I found it to be so informative, seeing before and after the fire pictures from inside the cathedral, and seeing pictures of the real Crown of Thorns that have been saved from the fire.

Reblog Wednesday: I Killed My Scale (And Took Back My Life) — Everyday Magic With Jubilee

I couldn’t pass this day without sharing another great blogger and an even greater post! If I may remind you, Jubilee and I collaborated in creating Dear 15 Year Old Me Tag – if you haven’t read that, you must and if you’d like to participate – please do!

This post touched my heart and touched ‘home.’ I know this isn’t an issue women face, but something that both men and women struggle with – weight. The topic of weight, weight loss, weight gain, is a serious topic and one that needs a greater voice. As a teen I had image issues, I’m a Spanish girl and with that comes areas of my body that as a teen I refused to accept. Therefore, in return I made it my mission to do everything possible to lose weight. It was a downward spiral, vicious and dangerous. I went as far as using laxatives to lose the weight. Thankfully, this horrible routine didn’t last long. Today I’m in a better place, I remind myself that this body has incubated, nourished, and carried six healthy babies. And no, I’m no where near a size 2, but my family, my babies don’t see their mama in numbers but rather see her with love. They will love me as a size 2 or 20 all the days of my life.

This quote here by Helen Keller reminds me to be grateful and be present – in the moment. Often times I’m looking at you but I’m not listening to you. There’s so much distraction and chaos that surrounds me that my mind is running far too quickly to stop and as the saying goes, ‘to smell the roses.’ There have been events in my life that could have broken me and taken me to the point of no return, like a separation, a breakup, my son’s autism diagnosis or my own Chiari + Syringomyelia diagnosis. But in the midst of this unknown I’ve seen the beauty that lies within these events. The fact that my son is such a wonderful boy, so beautiful, so sweet or the fact that after my diagnosis, I’m finally learning to slow down. It’s through life’s unprecedented events that I’ve seen my own strength. I’ve also seen the beauty that comes after the storm has passed, like when my two youngest babies were discharged from NICU – Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. What a joyous day that was, to have seen them going in so tiny and fragile, and then come out victorious.

The world has too many things to offer that will never fill a void in the heart. There have been too many times when I’ve attempted to do that, given in to the worlds offerings, only to be disappointed. When I’ve finally led with my heart, my heart is full – satisfied and content. As I read the quote below by Helen Keller, I could only remember something I’d heard a while ago ….

The best things is life, aren’t things.

Indeed!

Reblog Wednesday: Purpose of life — I refuse to give up

Have you ever read a poem that just captured your heart, gave you motivation – even if just a tiny bit? This poem did just that for me. If you’re living with Chiari + Syringomyelia or not, maybe living with another of life’s circumstances that you just don’t understand, this poem, talks about living above it all. We’re here for a reason beyond our own comprehension. How these moments, these moments you’re living will come and go, how there will be the inevitable bumps on the road, things that will shake you, things that will test you, but when things get better – because they always do, you’ll come out with more strength and with more wisdom then ever before.

Enjoy.
