Do You Know Why I Do This?

I try my best to write something each day.  It might not be much, it might not be earth-shattering; but, it is a way to stay connected and to give you a little insight into what’s going on in my life.  Most days, thankfully, the comments are really trite and of little substance.  However, since I have written every day, I have also had the chance to chronicle health crises — heart problem, hip replacement surgeries, hernia surgery — as well as some big happenings in my life or the life of my parish.

I often wonder if I should continue or not and about that time, someone will email me or speak to me in person and say, “I saw what you wrote…” and I think to myself, “Well, I guess people are still reading those things.  Maybe I should continue after all.”

So, that’s why I write these missives each day.

Why am I telling you this today?  Quite frankly, because I had nothing else I could think about to write. 🙂

  1. Hi, Father! I’m one of those who DOES read what you share, and I look forward to this every day! Even when I’m “laid up” myself! It proves that I’m not alone.

  2. Dear Fr. Mike,
    Please continue your sometimes rambling thoughts. I have often wondered how you got started and how you manage to come up with something day-after-day. I always enjoy reading your thoughts and it reminds me to keep you and Fr. Declan in my prayers.
