Sometimes, the last thing I want to do is leave the house.  Okay, maybe most of the time.  But yesterday, in the face of an empty house, and the opportunity to attend Mass alone, I made myself go.  After Mass, which was especially nice, I walked the grounds of a local historic home for about half an hour.  I never do things like that alone.  Have I ever done that before?  Maybe not.  I enjoy going places with my kids.  But last night, that solitary walk was just about perfect.
