New Years is a time of making resolutions. I find it hard to make resolutions because I tend to live from day to day and don't believe in making goals that I can never keep. I am not saying that I don't plan or make goals, but I don't save them just for New Years. I try to stay realistic and be the best version of myself, no matter what.
On New Years however, our family has Patron Saints chosen for us. We have been doing this for three years now. We have had some very well-known saints be our guides as well as those who are not known by many. It is so much fun getting to know our Patron Saints. This year our Patron Saints are as follows:
Mom was chosen by St. Boniface, feast day on 06/05,
Dad was chosen by St. Peter Claver, 09/09,
Noah - St. Stephen I, Pope, 08/02,
Maria - St. Dymphna, 05/15
Owen - St. Cletus, 04/26 and
Our Baby - St. Andrew Avellino, 11/10!
