Sat. May 22, 2010. It started out like every sat. morning yard sailing trip with Connie. But it ended quite differently. We went to this sale and there on the front porch was a picture of the Blessed Mother ?? It didn't matter, I was buying it any way. The frame was broken. An earlier yard saler before us had picked it up, dropped it and had broken the frame. The seller was going to trash it. I came along right afterward and offered to buy it. Luckily the owner had picked up all the little pieces from the frame. We came home after a morning of great finds. Connie left, and my husband and I headed to the hospital to visit his father.
When we got home latter that evening, I glued all the pieces back together again. My husband came in the room and said, Look why don't you trash the frame and buy a really good frame for that picture. I said NO!!! The frame is worth more and quite beautiful. I need to save it as is. I glued and then went to watch TV.
Nothing on, as I was flipping thru the channels I stopped on the Catholic channel EWTN. I never watch this, but there was this movie on about St.Rita.It was interesting, so I watched, as I was I kept looking at my new picture. So I googled St. Rita, guess what she is my picture and not only that but her Feast Day and Death are May 22! Talk about things happening for a reason. She now hangs proudly in my house and she is not for sale. I think I was meant to be her keeper.
