Scenes from a Summer’s Day ~ Aug 10th
A couple weeks ago, my sister Jennifer (who is #2 in our family, and only 14 months younger than I am) moved back to the area (at least part time). It will be so nice to have her back in the area.
She invited us over for a BBQ this past Sunday, and it was nice to have an opportunity to visit with my family.
Here are a few pictures from the day:

We had a great time, and look forward to the next get together! Thanks Jen!
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.
