New York memory

It's 11:00 p.m. and I have a craving for some really delicious hot chocolate on this cold winter night - which takes me back to my years in New York City, where I enjoyed the second best hot chocolate in the world at City Bakery on West 18th Street, near Union Square. If you're ever in the area, treat yourself - you won't regret it!

(There were a couple of places in Rome where I drank the best hot chocolate I'd had anywhere, but I don't remember the names of the places...)

God bless you all, today and always!

Almost There!

I watched "A Charlie Brown Christmas" today, thanks to a dear friend who sent me the DVD. I also found the following clip on YouTube, which makes it possible for me to share the most important part:

We'll miss you, Peter!

On Friday night, December 14th, a dear friend and counsellor, Peter Rudegeair died in a car accident. Peter was a faithful, practicing Catholic. He was a Clinical Psychologist and a loyal friend & supporter of the Courage ministry. Peter integrated spirituality and psychology in his counselling and was a great blessing to thousands of people. Please pray for the repose of Peter's soul and especially for his wife and four children. Please pray too for his other relatives, friends, colleagues, and especially his clients. He will be greatly, greatly missed...

Remembering you especially today, Dad

Thinking about you and praying for you, Dad. Thanks for looking out for us and praying for us too!

Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Hi. This is my first time setting up a weblog and I'm not even sure how to use it. Anyway, I'm hoping it will provide me with a creative outlet and a chance to share my thoughts and interests with others. Thanks for reading!
