It’s raining, It’s pouring…
It’s been raining like crazy this week, so today, hubby started storing away our (uncovered) porch furniture for the winter. sniff… sniff…
It always makes me sad when the time comes to take down our porch swing each year. We all just love sitting out there to read books and just visit. I guess the good thing is, pretty soon there will be a nice cozy fire to sit by instead.
Well, I am glad that we took advantage of our porch as much as we could this past month! In fact, here are a few pictures from this past week of us just swingin‘!
Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters…
“Momma! I am the oldest girl, just like you were!!!”
Looks like we are starting to outgrow the swing!! It is FULL!
We can still ALL fit (the kiddos just pile on top of hubby and I)… although I wonder if those chains will be able to take it for much longer! 🙂
(Oh! and in case you are wondering… Snuggles was laughing like crazy in that bottom picture. He *loves* his older brothers so much!)
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.
