My Mama Cave

I love blogging because this little space is like my "Mama Cave"...
A cave of contemplation.
It is here that I can crawl into a little space as big as a box and pour out my heart.
It is here where I can share what the Lord has done for me in big and little ways, in hopes that maybe He will read my Thank-You notes, now and then.
{Sometimes I truly forget just how "public" this cave actually is}...
Nevertheless, it is here where I can express the gratitude for my sufferings in a way that makes sense to my soul, even when it doesn't make sense to me.
I can only hope that I may hold out a lantern for someone else who might be groping in the dark like I once was...and often still am in many ways.
What I'd love to say is...
C'mon inside and feel the warmth of God's love and let His grace reign down.  
I'd like to pull up a bench next to our creator and just gaze into his eyes, wouldn't you?

I sometimes feel inadequate because I'm not fancy nor do I write to please any particular readers.
Sometimes I don't even have a clue about who cares to read what I have to say.
I guess it doesn't really matter since I don't write for numbers or recognition... I only hope that my boss, that "big man upstairs" recognizes that.  
In a world where information is flying around faster than I can think, I am grateful for this place to sit and actually contemplate the wondrous ways that God works.  If I can share an idea for living  our one, true, Catholic faith, I am happy.  For it is only in giving that we receive.  I have received amazing and abundant blessings from my relationship with Christ, living and breathing through the church.  We are so blessed and that is meant to be shared!

I have made some beautiful friends here, many who inspire me to keep living, working, and striving for sanctity.  I am inspired by many bloggers who are real, honest, warriors for the faith. It is here where I come to gather new prayer intentions that give my prayer life real purpose and meaning.  
I am certain that I see saints-in-the-making all around me.  I see hope in this world through the windows of many faith-filled blogs.
WIth a sincere heart, I step into this cave and with conviction, I step out.
Now that is a cave worth crawling into!


  1. beautiful reflection. praise God for our "caves." may it all glorify Him!

    Ad Jesum per Mariam

  2. I enjoy your cave and this post. It reflects just how I feel about it also! Thank you. God Bless.

  3. I agree, totally and love your cave!

    I think it's only something bloggers "get" though, don't you find that?
    If I try to explain to some people, my "friend" in California, or Ohio, or Kansas or my "friends" all over the country, even overseas sometimes, they look at me like, "huh?"

    but, I truly think this is the good out of the fast world of communication and computers, etc...

    As if we can actually see God pulling us all together.
    It's amazing.

  4. Tiffany, your reflections are always worth reading. To me, I find such inspiration and perseverance for my own path, a friend's voice that says I'm on this path too; let's walk it together. It's amazing how we can have such lack of that friendship in real life relationships sometimes. and I feel a closeness to you and toehr Catholic blogging mothers who walk this path in their own lives and yet, they are parallel to mine ! God bless you. I love reading your mama cave reflections.

  5. Tiffany, I have responded twice (long ones!) and both times I did something that made the comment disappear! I am so glad that you share your ponderings- and your decorated brownie ideas! You always inspire me. I am linking your blog on my wrap-up this week if that is okay. If it is not, let me know and I will remove it. ~Laurie

  6. I never thought of my blog as a Mama Cave. lol. This is a beautiful reflection of how moms need to find some down time to clear our minds of the chaos that sometimes goes around our days of mothering, and all of course in a good way! =) God bless you and your Mama Cave. There are times I read your blog and get so tired to even comment but ponder on your beautiful mothering ministry. God bless you Tiffany. You are a saint in the making! {internet hugs}
