8 Simple Ways to Celebrate St. Teresa of Calcutta’s Feast Day: September 5 (My Post at Peanut Butter & Grace)

It's been awhile since I last posted with my St. Rose of Lima Simple Celebration post on August 23.

Life for the Smith family has been a blessed whirlwind as we prepared and celebrated my parents' 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday, September 9, 2017.  It took many, many hours of planning, preparing and lots of team work with my mom, sister and friends for the big party with about 150 family and friends gathered to celebrate and honor my parents beautiful accomplishment. Then my sister and her husband baptized their second baby the Sunday after the anniversary party.  Then last week my parents, siblings and their families spent a week together for a beach vacation as a way to continue the anniversary celebration and make more memories with cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. 19 family members in a big enough beach house for all of us creates some fun memories! :)  I am so grateful everything worked out beautifully and Hurricane Irma stayed away, although we felt how powerful the storm was for a few days at the beach with high winds and waves crashing on what little beach was left.   Then the skies cleared and the fierce waves settled down for much of the week.

I hope to post photos of the anniversary party and our family's beach vacation soon.  I'm still trying to catch my breath and catch up with laundry and life. :)

In other news, I've been a contributor for the blog Peanut Butter & Grace for a few months now and I have written several posts so far for them.  I love their Misson statement and vision....

"The mission of Peanut Butter & Grace is to help Catholic parents raise children to be saints—that is, people who love Christ and his Church and take action to continue Christ’s mission in the world today.
We do this by providing digital and print resources that assist parents in forming their children in the faith within the daily life of their family. All of our products are made for Catholic parents—either to use themselves (think of 77 Ways to Pray with Your Kids), or to hand to their kids (think of the Illuminated Rosary prayer books)."

For St. Teresa of Calcutta's feast day on September 5, I wrote 8 Simple Ways to Celebrate St. Teresa of Calcutta's Feast Day on Peanut Butter & Grace. I know her feast day has passed, but perhaps you can pin it and save it for next year's celebration?
