As a mother, I feel like the anchoress of my home.
Back in the day, an anchoress was a woman who was walled into a cell to live a life of prayer and contemplation.
Look up Julian of Norwich..one of my newly discovered saints.
I'm not exactly walled in..but any business I conduct, or mission work I do...is now done from home.
My first duty is to my family and my home...and praying for them and others.
This allows me to pray more and to be fully present to my family.
I only need to leave home for a wee bit to realize I kind of like the life of an anchoress for my family
Sending our love and prayers to our remnant family...Wendy, Walt and the entire Cukierski family

I have NOTHING to offer, but the Pediatric Giving Missions is in great need.
I am down to the final week of providing Christmas and pediatric medical needs.
My husband said he would match up to $750,
today and tomorrow.
Do we have anyone able to step in the gap?
If so, head HERE
We know many are willing, but unable...we truly understand.
Like a true anchoress, I am devoting the rest of my life to prayer.
Prayer for YOU, my family and those in need.
How may I pray for YOU?
-----From a physician we help...he sees to the medical needs of children no one else seems to be able to help -----
We do what we say we do!
I am begging for your help with The Pediatric Giving Mission.We will send you a gift for your help.GOD BLESS YOU!..---Some of the many wee ones we've helped---
---HELP IF YOU CAN----
Here is a post, from a recipient of what we do,.
L**** and I were one of the precipitants of This mission. She is right. My parking was 9 per day for 3 months. Then on top of that food cost me approximately 15 per day. That was cheap - I got vouchers for $5.00 per meal. So somedays I did not eat or made meals last for more then one meal. Had to. Parking was $810. Food was $1,300. Then you have normal household bills and I have 3 animals I had to pay to have people come and take care of them. At first I had my dog in the Kennel for 1/2 the time. That was about 500. It is VERY expensive to have a sick child. That was Just ONE hospital stay. We have had numerous ones. Some only a few days, some a week or two. Without their help we would of gone fully under!
From providing necessary funds to actually having families stay with us...we DO what we say we do!
