Garbage bags

I recently went gracery shopping and used the new cloth bags that are becoming so popular.  This is a strange post but I just wanted to say I enjoyed using them.  They held so much more and were much easier to carry into the house when I got home.

I didn't put meats in those bags because I had heard you should continue to use the plastic bags to keep from getting stains and germs on your cloth bags.

I am trying to remember to take them with me when I go to the store but that is kind of hard. I always find myself wishing I had remembered them as soon as I get in line.  I am going to try to keep them in the car. That might help.

I, also, wonder what am I going to use to line my garbage cans. Plastic bags come in so handy.

Dear Lord help us to educate our family for your glory.

"Since parents have conferred life on their children, they have a most solemn obligation to educate their offspring. Hence, parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educators is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it. For it devolves on parents to create a family atmosphere so animated with love and reverence for God and others that a well-rounded personal and social development will be fostered among children. Hence, the family is the first school of those social virtues which every society needs."--Gravissimum Educationis (one of the documents of the Second Vatican Council)
