If you can only read one long post today, this is the one!!! Thank you Elizabeth for sharing your wisdom with all of us once again! I needed to read this. So, I am shutting the computer off this morning and attending to the things I need to get done for my family!

Hopefully, I will get everything done, and be back to visit with you all later!!

Have a great day!!!

    It was indeed worth the time to read. Thank you so much for posting it. It has pricked my conscience and now I’m off to do my “duties”

    Yes, exactly what I’ve been feeling! My laundry had piled up so much that Ballerina Rosie had no underwear left. All caught up now though! (well, as caught up as a mother can be with laundry…) Thank you for linking her wonderful post. See what we see in our souls after Divine Mercy? AND see how hard it is to work on those things? God Bless you Jessica!

    Good stuff! It’s all about balance and moderation and making sure the urgent/non-important things don’t take over our lives! 🙂

    I did the same as you… and all the beds in my house are made today… the laundry? Well, that is another story!

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.
