Our Lady of Guadalupe, Windsor, Ohio


In September 1958, driving cross-country to our first home in Amarillo, Texas, Peter and I stopped at a statue of the Blessed Mother in a white gazebo in the middle of a village green in some Ohio town. We have a picture of me standing in front of it. It was the only thing I remembered from Ohio. So 58 years later, landing in Cleveland too early to meet Charlotte at Kenyon, I remembered the statue and asked the woman at the car rental desk if she knew of a large statue of the Blessed Mother in the middle of some small town in Ohio. She found one online, and though it was a few hours out of our way Charlie was willing, so we followed her directions, miles and miles through beautiful farming country, rolling hills spotted with red barns, until, in the middle of nowhere, we stopped at a small parking area, almost ready to turn around, figuring we were lost. Instead, we parked the car and followed a cement walkway that led to a pond with a fence of big white balls, which I soon realized was a rosary, to the 50 foot statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Although it was not the same statue and about 40 feet highter than the one I remembered, it was the same Lady, and I felt the same happiness as as I had felt 58 years before, meeting her again, unexpectedly, in Ohio.
 
 
The tallest statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the world stands fifty-feet high and is located on the grounds of The Servants of Mary Center for Peace Catholic Shrine in Windsor, Ohio.

Letters from Charlotte
Summer in Graz, Austria

One of the joys of this summer was receiving regular long, wonderful email letters and photos from Charlotte!.

. . . ."
"I've made it to Graz. We came in on Saturday and got picked up at the airport in Vienna and then took the train to Graz that was about 2.5 hours. We then went out and about in Graz after dropping our stuff off . . . ."
 
"I'm working in a man's lab who is doing his PHD and all the other people in his lab come about twice a week and they are doing their masters. They've all been very nice. I work 9-5 and seem to have the best job. . . ."
 
"My second weekend here I went rafting in the Alps (with two other people in my group) with the international students' organization in Graz. The drive was about 2 hours and it was a half day, 11 km trip. The water was so cold that we had to wear these ridiculous looking wet suits (mine was pink and purple, it was quite the sight), and we wore helmets and booties, too. We had the option to go in a bigger boat with a guide, or a smaller boat with two other people and no guide--obviously I went in the small boat so it would be more fun. . . . ."
 
" On Saturday we went on a moped tour of the city and it was so fun. We first learned how to drive the mopeds (fairly simple but kind of scary when you go around 30mph) and then we had about a 4 hour tour and saw everything in Budapest. We saw the statue of freedom, the buda castle (my favorite), heroes' square, the parliament building, and a few other smaller things. It was such a great way to see the city. . . ."
 
"Last weekend I went to Vienna on Saturday (just a 2.25 hour bus ride) and had a nice time. We saw the Schoenbrunn Palace, which once was the summer home of the Hapsburgs. They had gardens that seemed to go on forever and then the main "backyard" was a ton of really bright flowers and a fountain at the end. We also saw St.Stephen's cathedral (I lit a candle for everyone!), Belvedere Palace, walked by the opera house and the Mozart museum, and went to the Naschmarkt, which was my favorite place. Pappou you would love this market: It is a mile long and sells a ton of food - mostly Greek/Turkish food, but also bakeries (for apple strudel, yummm) and stands of vegetables, fruits. . . ."
 
"This past weekend I went to Zurich and it was amazing! I would 100% move there tomorrow if I could. The streets are peaceful and calm - no one seems like they're in a rush, but they're also not wandering aimlessly and getting in the way. It is more of a wandering-around city than a city where you want to go from tourist attraction to tourist attraction, and maybe thats why I liked it so much.. . . . I met up with Bianca. Bianca is my dad's Brazilian friend's daughter that I met once when I was 11. It was great to meet up with her though. She was very easy going/sooo nice and we just kind of wandered to the lake and sat in the shade for a little and then took a boat ride. . . ."
 
"The first weekend I met the family on Friday morning at our hotel in Vienna. We went to Schonbrunn Palace and this time we went inside and got to see the rooms the Habsbergs lived in and the portraits on the walls. We also visited St.Stephen's cathedral but this time we walked up a few hundred steps to the top of one of the towers and got a great view of the city. The next day we went to the naschtmarkt to grab a quick bite and then we wandered to the Belvedere Palace and went inside to see some artwork, most notably Klimt. I wasn't a fan but Mum and Alexander seemed to enjoy it. Sunday we went to the Jewish museum and found out that Austria hated Jews way more than we thought. We also went to the amusement park with the oldest ferris wheel in Europe and giant swings, that I refused to go on but Daddy and Alexander did. We then all took the train back to Graz and I worked during the week and the rest of the fam went to Ljubljana in Slovenia. I have been moved from the TU Graz lab to the RCPE (research center pharmaceutical engineering) industry lab. I've been learning to do stuff with crystals of aspirin and ibuprofen and I made a friend in the lab that I eat lunch with. "
 
"This past weekend we all went to Salzburg. On Saturday and Sunday we met and wandered around with some distant relatives on the Leblang side, Edith and her husband Roland. They were great and on Saturday we went to the castle overlooking the city and then a brewery for dinner and a concert afterwards. On Sunday we had a great day; we traveled a little ways to get to the largest ice caves in Europe! There were quite a few steps (pun! because we walked up a billion steps) to get to the caves including a train, bus, gondola, and a few hikes. But it was so worth the travel because I've never seen anything like that before. It was basically a glacier inside a cave with some giant hills/pointy things made from the water leaking through the cave (it looks like an intestine.) Pictures were forbidden but I grabbed a few. That night we went to get beer that monks started making in the 1500s or something (I don't really remember but it was old) and then some traditional Austrian food that I think the whole fam was sick of. Alexander and the world's largest bread dumpling. If you go out to eat here you just get meat and after a week of eating out I thought I was going to lose someone due to a lack of vegetables in their diet. . . ."
 
"On Monday we had quite the day. We took a Sound of Music bike tour around Salzburg for 3.5 hours. They took us to all the places that were filmed in the movie and at one point we had to sing (I think this was Daddy and Alexander's favorite part). It was a great time and it gave us another nice tour of the city. We then went to see a Marionette version of the Magic Flute. It was about as good as it sounds but the Marionettes were definitely better than I thought - I imagined them to be creepy and wooden but they were actually very people-like and the puppeteers were extremely talented. I wouldn't go again but I guess I am glad I went. Then the fam left for Vienna to fly home and I came back to Graz.. . . ."
The hills are alive with the sound of music.

"This weekend I am taking Monday off again and going to Rome with my friend from Kenyon who has been in Madrid doing biology research all summer. And then it's my last week of work and then I'm off on my adventure around Europe! I'll try to update while on my trip to Paris, London, Berlin, and Prague but we will see what happens. . . . "
Tschüs,
Charlotte

The day after. The Marathon 2015 Jacket and Luna
 
Dear friends and family,

Thank you all for the moral and financial support that you gave me for my first marathon! From Boston, Texas, New York, New Jersey, Florida, and more, you all motivated me throughout my training and throughout the race so I wanted to send another thank you, a race and fundraising update, and some pictures, of course.

I completed the Boston Marathon in 4:44, running about a 10:54 mile pace throughout the race. As I fought the headwinds up Heartbreak Hill in my dad's 1980 BC cross country jacket, I thought to myself that this is hands down the most hardcore thing I have ever done, I trained in Texas, what was I thinking! But I also knew that there was no way I could stop running with so many people invested in this race. Seeing Auntie Deahn and Uncle Russ (my long-distance coaches) at Mile 16 with dry clothes, running by BC as a marathoner rather than an exuberant fan, seeing my dad, James, cousin Jack, and Laura (who ran the last 5 with me) at Mile 21, high-fiving my mom, Lindsey, Yia-yia, Pappou and the Mahoneys at Mile 24, and seeing Annelise, Lauren, and Morgan sporting neon Molly shirts with my 6th grade 'fro plastered on them made the last half of the marathon a joyful, rather than painful, experience! The influx of phone calls and text messages before and after the race attested to how many loving, kind people I am lucky enough to have in my life. (#blessed)

Also, thanks to all of you, I surpassed my fundraising goal of $2,500! Christmas in the City is an inspiring local non-profit run completely by volunteers and your money will support the homeless and underprivileged children of Boston and the greater Boston area. There are only 244 days until Christmas but, in donating, you embody the holiday spirit of giving all year round! On behalf of Christmas in the City, thank you. Also, if you're around Boston, there are many other ways to get involved with CITC so check out their website and reach out if you're interested! http://christmasinthecity.org/

Finally, **about to step off my Boston Marathon soapbox** Marathon Monday 2015 is an experience I will never forget and, again, thank you so much for being a part of this journey with me. I am attaching a few pictures if you didn't catch me throughout the race.

Hope you are well!

Love,

Molly
