New Name :)

My Dear Readers,

As you might have noticed I, formerly Cinia, have assumed a new name - 847 wishes.This inspiration came to me at Mass today as Fr. Michael Dodds O.P. was preaching about Christ. He was telling us about how the world trys to convince us that we are stupid; therefore we need other poeple's help. He said for example, when he typed in 3 wishes into google, over 800,000 sites would come up offering to help him choose what they would be. When he typed in 1 wish, over a million came up. Yet when he typed in 847 there were zero sites because no one would help you for that many.
That made an impression on me, because I want my name to remind me that no one should decide my life for me, except for God. Just like if I had 847 wishes, because no one would help me decide how to use them.

I apologize if that doesn't make sense, a lot has happened today and I'm a little out sorts. But for now, that's my new name, and I like it.

Here's the almost worthwhile site of the post:
Anthony is one of my 2nd cousins, and I love the story of how he proposed - ROMANTIC!

Painting Pictures

Here they are! The collection of Madeline, Claire and Michelle painting pictures. We explored our Cajun roots, licked paintcicles, and picked raspberries. All in all it was a very fun and awesomely fruitful day. WAHOO!

My first cousin!!!!!!!!

I am VERY pleased/proud/happy to announce that I now have a beautiful/cute/adorable baby cousin! Lauren Catherine was born at 10:25ish at Swedish hospital on June 29th and weighs 6 lbs. 10 oz. I just got to hold her yesterday-too cute! Unfortunately we don't have any pictures of her and me just yet, but I'll post some other pictures we have of her later.

Until then, crack open the cigars..I have a cousin!

P.S. if you notice, I removed the 'worthwhile site pick' called Rejection because after surfing around on it a few days ago I found some rather objectionable content. Because Cinia does not with to be associated with that, I no longer recommend it as a worthwhile site.
