Remember this picture?

Well, she is back…

It looks like my Auntie B anonymous commenter was right!

**I have been trying to get a picture for weeks, and today was the first day I was able to get close enough without them running away!!!

    Bambi!!! How precious! That is the kind of pet I would like to have… one that comes just for a visit to the backyard every once in awhile but tends to stay away, lol.

  2. Christine

    Your pictures on your blog are great. You must have a good camera….and a good photographer!

    Your kids must love swimming! We have 10,000 lakes here in Minnesota. Always somewhere to swim.

  3. Shelly

    what a wonderful shot!

  4. Jessica Gordon

    The deer are nice, other than the fact that they eat EVERYTHING!!

    I do love my camera Christine. It is a Canon Rebel. It does help though, when the deer let me walk up close to them without running away for once! And yes, my children do love to swim!

    Thanks Shelly! 🙂

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.
