Two true things

Today's quote from Mother Angelica's biography:

Some people say I am a woman of great faith. I'm really a coward who keeps moving forward.

And this:

You Are 52% Cynical

Yes, you are cynical, but more than anything, you're a realist.
You see what's screwed up in the world, but you also take time to remember what's right.

Oh, and that prayer and the Sacred Heart make all the difference. Because, even when you feel like completely throwing in the towel, when you're simply exhausted and bored and frustrated and a welter of needless anxiety and sudden wanderlust, when you feel so far from the saints and the angels, when you feel far from all love including self-love, when all you can see are the errors of your every small and mean thought - even so, you crack Magnificat, peek at Paul's letter to the Romans, and...

...the grace pours in. O Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!

Mood: Complicated
Music: Johnny playing "God of Wonders" on the guitar upstairs
Goodness and Grace are: Sufficient to get through joyfully five hours of teaching/rehearsal and an upcoming five doing trailer checks.
Also useful is: Tom Petty's "It'll All Work Out."
And because no one expects the Spanish Inquisition! I swear, I thought when I pressed the "I'd put on my own variety show" to "What would you do if you suddenly had to entertain an audience" I'd get Kermit. I'd no idea who I'd get when I answered that I was most likely to say: "Ladies and gentlemen, there's nothing to worry about, but please keep your head down" but it seemed like something I'd definitely say!

You Are Miss Piggy

A total princess and diva, you're totally in charge - even if people don't know it.

You want to be loved, adored, and worshiped. And you won't settle for anything less.

You're going to be a total star, and you won't let any of the "little people" get in your way.

Just remember, piggy, never eat more than you can lift!

OK, OK, one more for the road: Oh, happy day! Yes, yes - but let's go to the Southern part of Ireland, eh?

You Belong in Dublin

Friendly and down to earth, you want to enjoy Europe without snobbery or pretensions.
You're the perfect person to go wild on a pub crawl... or enjoy a quiet bike ride through the old part of town.

And just for the "awwwww" factor: Pretty spot on, actually. Impressed.

How You Life Your Life

You seem to be straight forward, but you keep a lot inside.
You say whatever is on your mind. Other people's reactions don't phase you.
You tend to have one best friend you hang with, as opposed to many aquaintences.
You have one big dream in your life, and you never lose sight of it.
