Baby, it’s cold outside! Here in Western Pennsylvania our trees are frozen solid. Burrrr…
I think I understand why bears crawl into cozy dens and hibernate for the winter. Sometimes I envy the bear. Like, why can’t I go into a dormant, sleep-like state for the winter…and lose up to 40 percent of my body fat in the process? Bypassing winter would be a-okay with me. Let’s give a cheer to hibernation…
I say burr.
- You say den.
- Burr. Den. Burr. Den.
- Gooooo Bears!

is Val, who answered “right to life.” I think that was a good answer, and admirable of her to state.
I promise not to get too deep for a Friday, so I’ll make my point quick. I was raised Catholic and was taught that life begins at conception and ends at natural death. As I passed through my 20s and 30s, I thought about the right to life issue many times and whether I truly believed as I was taught. I’ve never known someone close to me who chose to end a pregnancy at the beginning of a life or that contemplated an act of mercy at the end of a life. Therefore, I cannot speak from a personal experience. However, I can honestly say that I do believe in the right to life except in an extreme circumstance. Ending a human life because it would be seen as a burden is beyond my scope of understanding.
What are you doing this weekend to celebrate your own life?
Or, if you want to get deep on the weekend…what are your thoughts on the right to life? Has your stance always been the same, or has it changed over time?
Check back on Monday for a recap of the upcoming Holiday Party plans in my near future. Have a great weekend everyone!
