Chiquita just walked up to me with her jacket on and said:
Chiquita: Bye, Bye Mommy.
Me: Where are you going Chiquita?
Chiquita: To Mass!
Me: How are you going to get there?
Chiquita shrugs her shoulders, grins at me, and walks off singing “Alleluia” while looking at the pictures in “Green Eggs and Ham”…
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
