April Shower of Photos :: Day 24

by | Apr 24, 2008 | Happy Birthday, My Siblings, Shower of Photos | 6 comments

I don’t have much time to take photos today… Last weekend I got frustrated with the dungeon my closet. I had started cleaning it, and as I was trying to get a gift bag off the top shelf, a huge plastic box fell and smashed my toe–o.u.c.h! It still hurts! And so, I basically threw everything out the door. The good thing is My closet is now clean, wahoo! The bad thing is, there is a mountain of paperwork and millions of miscellaneous items right outside the door, so you can’t get into my closet. Yes, it was a bad idea. I’ve been working on it all week, but have yet to put much of a dent in the pile. So, after school, that is my goal for today. Say a prayer for me!

I thought for today’s photo, since it happens to be my brother Sean’s 28th birthday, I would upload a photo from when we were kids.

It looks like I have very few pictures of Sean… This one was taken back when my parents had only the 3 of us… Me, Jennifer and Sean… and mom actually had our pictures taken! It is old (like us!) and scratched up, but I thought it was cute just the same.

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.
