Another Surprise

by | Jan 24, 2008 | Thank You | 3 comments

Not only did I receive a TON of packages from FedEx today, a couple more arrived with the mail, one for me, which contained some DVD’s that I have been wanting to watch for some much needed inspiration and motivation, and one for the boys!

The boys were SO excited!

You should have seen their faces, and heard their excitement when they opened the box and found these:

A couple WWII Style Bomber Jackets!
(**The tan patch is for a Velcro name plate, which I removed for the photo.)

Aren’t they cool! They LOVE them!

Check out the zippers too… with little airplanes! Aren’t those darling!

Thank you to my dear cousin Juliana and Aunt Alice! You two have been spoiling us!

    Ooooh! I love packages too!

  2. Amy

    Those coats are completly to die for! They look so cute!!

    And packages… have you ever seen The Music Man? They sing that song about the Wells Fargo wagon… I swear that suns through my head every time I see the Ups man coming up my walk. It must be a great job, to be the UPS or Fed-ex guy… to be so loved!

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.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
