1. Pope Benedict has named a record number of women to the synod on the New Evangelization, including Sister Paula Jean Miller, a Franciscan Sister of the Eucharist and professor of theology at the University of St. Thomas in Houston - one of "my" Franciscan Sisters.
2. I found - through a co-worker - a Goodwill "boutique". The Goodwill stores in the area gather up the best stuff and bring it to their boutique store, which happens to be just down the street from where I work. For a thrift store maven like me, this is Nirvana!
3. The Detroit Tigers are in first place. And that is good.
What are three good things in your life today?
