Four quick steps to get the day going.
Catholic Mom's Cafe: Five-Minute Retreats for Every Day of the Year offers daily entries that are meaty enough to be meaningful and short enough to be manageable.
Ponder a quote.
Offer a thought.
Pray a short prayer.
Savor a Godsend.
I opened the book at random, and found this great quote from Dorothy Day:
"Because I am a woman involved in practical cares, I cannot give the first half of the day to these things, but must meditate when I can, early in the morning and on the fly during the day. Not in the privacy of a study - but here, there and everywhere - at the kitchen table, on the train, on the ferry, on my way to and from appointments and even while making supper or putting [my daughter] to bed."
Dorothy Day and Donna-Marie ... these two understand.
Catholic Mom's Cafe will be here, there, and everywhere in my house.
