Just Swingin’

by | May 8, 2008 | Home Sweet Home | 7 comments

My dear hubby surprised me last night, by hanging up our porch swing!! I was so excited!

I just love our swing! It is so inviting. I love sitting out there to read while the kids play in the yard… Hubby and I both love “escaping” to the swing in the evening for a little quite time… And, this time of year, the kids love listening to their read-a-louds on the swing! I’m so glad it is SPRING!!

The kids are loving it too, and they lost no time in grabbing a couple books for me to read to them today!

I hope you are enjoying the season, where ever you are!

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.
