April Shower of Photos :: Day 7

by | Apr 8, 2008 | Shower of Photos | 6 comments

For these next three, I was trying out a few different settings on my camera: outdoor, regular, and portrait:
I’ve had a pinched nerve in my back all weekend–which, thankfully, was starting to get better today! But, it looks like we have just caught another cold/flu. Right now Rascal & Twinkle Toes are sick, and I think it is hitting Snuggles and I. I’m off to take some more vitamin C and get some sleep! Good night!

    Sorry to hear your kids are getting sick again. No fun! Thanks for all the nice comments on my blog!

    Yes, my boys searched and searched the woods to find all of those. In fact some came out of a couple burn piles. I guess they didn’t feel like they had enough though, and keep asking there dad to get out his chainsaw and cut some more for them! 🙂

    Thanks Margaret–I’m hoping it passes quickly!!

    Hoping you all are better real quick!

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.
