March for Life Photos

by | Jan 26, 2008 | Pictures, Pro-Life | 10 comments

This past weekend our family participated in our annual March for Life.

After Mass, we had lunch and said the rosary at the home of some friends, and then headed downtown for the March. The weather forecast said it would be snowing… But, instead, we were blessed with a BEAUTIFUL day!

Upon arriving, I was disappointed to find the flashcard of my camera full, and for some reason, it wasn’t even letting me delete any pictures… I love pictures, and camera problems TOTALLY frustrate me… So, much to my dismay, I wasn’t able to take any pictures.

However, a friend of ours was there videoing, and since we stand out with five little ones he happened to get a few shots of our family, he was able to email me a few still clips of the video!! Yeah!!

In fact, I am actually shocked that he already emailed these to me!!! I figured–when he mentioned last night, that he was going to–that I would receive them in a couple years, give or take, considering we are still waiting for the video of Chiquita’s baptism, which was almost 3 years ago… But, to my astonishment, unlike the baptism video, they were in my inbox this morning!! I have been told, that things get better with time? So I expect Chiquita’s baptism video will be pretty awesome by the time we actually get it. (hint…hint) Right?!?

I’m just giving you a hard time, Marc. Seriously, THANK YOU so much, for the pictures! Now, all my dear blog friends can see them!

Following the March, there was an awesome rally. Here are some photos of Snuggles during that rally… (Its always nice to find out you were unknowingly being filmed… Isn’t it!? Looks like Snuggles didn’t mind.)

Snuggles does look so snugable and lovable though, doesn’t he? Just looking at him is such a wonderful testimony for LIFE! Babies are SUCH a BLESSING!

“Lo, sons are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the sons of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them!”

Psalm 127:3-5

    Aloha Jessica. I love your blog too. I added your blog to my side bar a few days ago.
    I’ll be back!
    BTW, these are wonderful photos.

    Good job! What great pictures!

  3. Marc Salvatore

    Ouch! A public blog bashing. By the way I don’t think “videoing” is a real word 🙂

    Remember, like fine wine….

    Great pictures.
    there was quite a turnout for the rally too
    God bless you all for being there.
    God provided good weather, too.

    Yes, the pictures are great aren’t they?! The credit all goes to Marc! He did a great job!

    And Marc, I’m not “blog bashing!” I’m just teasing. And, it looks like your right… I can’t find the word “videoing” anywhere. I don’t think snugable is a word either. But they both should be, IMHO!

    It’s ok Jessica, I deserve it. Just don’t ask how long I take on some of my friend’s wedding videos.

    By the way if anyone wants to see more stills from the march (74 total) you can view them at JCRTL

    That is so awesome!
    You know, I have always wanted to take part, but I was always worried with little ones. But if you guys did it, than we should be able too!
    Thank you for posting this!

    Also, snuggable is in the mommy dictionary, I am sure.

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.
