Thank you for your votes! Although the Crescat has not made it official yet, I believe that I have won the “Most Under Appreciated Blog” category. I’ll let you know when I know for sure.
Last night, I woke up in a cold sweat at 4 a.m. and began to pray furiously that I would lose. Why would I do such a thing after begging so ardently for votes, you may ask? Because just two days ago I realized that I was going head-to-head in that category with a priest. And not just any priest…an awesome priest.
In the middle of the night, I decided that Fr. Mathis totally deserved to win over me. I write about changing diapers and cleaning up puke; he writes posts clarifying the rules of fasting for those of us who have been woefully misinformed until five minutes ago.
I actually woke up this morning disappointed (and, okay, also delighted) to discover myself ahead in the polls. (Keeping it real here, guys. False humility is not humility at all.) So I decided to write a post dedicated to Fr. Mathis. It’s not a great post, really, but it was the best I could do while putting my two-year-old in yet another time out for throwing sand in her cousin’s eyes. It actually doesn’t express (even remotely) the depth of admiration I feel for the priests of our Church, nor the pervasive peace I feel when I even so much as see a priest in a cassock, but it’s a start.
|Be advised that Fr. Mathis is alarmingly close to being as awesome as this picture. Watch out, world.|
