Birthday Highlights

by | Sep 1, 2008 | Birthday Parties, Happy Birthday | 7 comments

Twinkle Toes had a wonderful birthday! She got to see some of her friends at a Baptism we attended in the morning, followed by a BBQ at our friends home.  We then came home to eat cake and ice cream and let her open up her gifts…  I used the opportunity to purchase her a new booster seat and some new boots and dresses for the fall, which she LOVED (and needed!)…  She especially loved the card from her grandparents, the gift from her Godparents, and her new “searching” book from us.

Thank you to all of you for the prayers and birthday wishes.  I read them to her and she says “Thank you!” with her cute and bashful smile.  God Bless!

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.
