For my Boys

by | Sep 21, 2008 | Wildlife | 4 comments

My boys asked me to grab my camera and take a picture to share with you all… This is one of the reasons why I am not able to grow anything outside!

At least it wasn’t this guy!

    What an adorable face! We have deer and oh yes, turkeys too in our yard. we have the same gaggle of 15 or so who roam around. one morning my 12yo dd was going out onto the front porch to fill the cat’s bowls – opened the door, then slowly started backing back into the house and quietly shut the door. She said, “um, mommy, come look at this!” sure enough the gaggle was right there in our front yard and probably startled/surprised her. funny!

    How cool! We saw so many on the way to church, Hubby got distracted and I thought we wouldn’t even make it to mass!

    That is so funny Shelly!

    Amy ~ I am SO glad we got to see you at Mass! I know it’s a drive, but so worth it!!!

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.
