FOR TODAY: October 6th, 2008, The Feast of St. Bruno

Outside my Window… there is still quite a bit that needs to be done to prepare for winter, but the sun has come out for the moment, and the forecast is predicting more sunny weather come Wednesday!

I am thinking… about our upcoming All Saints’ Party at the end of the month. My children look forward to it all year long!

From the school room… we have a bit of catch up work that needs to be done. We have had a difficult time settling into a routine this past month.

I am thankful… my hubby is home! Now things are calming down, and it is nice! We really missed him!

From the kitchen… Hot Chai Tea and Biscotti! Yum!! A dear older woman from Church just had eye surgery, and is on bedrest for two weeks so I’ll be taking her dinner tonight, so I have chicken cooking in the crock pot. I am planning on making Chicken Enchiladas, Corn, Salad and Mexican Rice for dinner, with brownies for dessert.

I am creating… a list of games we have played in the past at our All Saints’ Party.

I am going… to make sure I make it to Gymboree this week. I have a couple Gymbucks that *HAVE* to be used! 😉

I am wearing… a big warm cozy sweatshirt. It is really cold in our house today!

I am reading… through the Serendipity Plans and trying to figure out what we will be focusing on this week.

I am hoping… to celebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary tomorrow. I may call a couple friends and see if they want to get together to say the rosary, color pictures, and eat a cupcake rosary! I plan on using mini cupcakes for the Hail Mary beads, and regular sized ones for the our Fathers. I’ve seen this done (or read about it) before (was it you?), and I have been dying to try it myself. It’s not like we have had too much cake around here, or anything!

I am hearing… the children playing together, and the washing machine humming. Very familiar sounds in our home.

Around the house… Roses! Fresh, Candy, and Paper Roses!

One of my favorite thingsOur First Class Relic of St. Therese. Since Nancy asked about it it is a tiny piece of her bone, and was a given to us by one of hubby’s brothers.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week

  • Catch up on our school work.
  • The tutor will be coming Tue & Wed.
  • Mass and Benediction on Friday, followed by lunch with Father.
  • Keep it simple!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing:

I always love seeing my girls in their veils for Mass.

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.
