1. How many times have you moved?

2. Will this week be busy for you?

3. Do you have Mother's day plans yet?

I think it's obscene for  anyone to hold up as an example of appropriate motherhood, an example of a woman who would willingly orphan her children when she had another choice.

I do not believe that she should be held up as a model to emulate, no.  I don't like abortion, but i think that choosing to abort to save the life of the mother is one of the few times when it is unequivocally morally right to choose to abort.

I find the women that surround me on a daily basis - either directly or from afar - to be some of the best models for mothers and for women.   These women may not be saints, but they are women who have fought for what's right for their children, or they've made sacrifices for the sake of their children, or they've simply weighed their own needs and wants against those of their children and make the appropriate choices for the family as a whole.  

The same goes for model fathers too ...

Particularly since there are hundreds of women who are awaiting beatification.  To choose this one and to leave the others uncanonized is a real message about the worth of women within this theological system.

Saints don't rise to that level following societal norms or stanards, On their holy days they are recognized for their martrydome.  And there are more women than you know that have risen to sainthood, It's pretty fascinating actually. 

ETA You imply sainthood as some competition, St Gianna didn't compete for that elevation.

I had my own place for a short period of time before marrying DH, We then lived in a couple different apartment homes before buying too.
