Who, Me???

I was just given the “I Love Your Blog Award” from two super sweet bloggers: Shelly at The Keeper of the Keys, and Mrs. L from At the Wellsprings of Traditional Life!!! Thank you so much to both of you!!! I love your blogs too!

I am suppose to pass this award on to 7 more blogs. It will be hard to keep it at 7, since I have sooooo many favorites… I love all the blogs I read! 😉 But here are 7 from my list:

  1. Waltzing Matilda
  2. Eileen on Him… at least, I try!
  3. Merryheart Acres
  4. Unam Ecclesiam (of course!)
  5. Our Domestic Church
  6. Pinewood Castle
  7. Catholic Family Vignettes

Now, for you recipients of this award, here’s the deal:
* Display your award.
* Link back to the person who gave you the award.
* Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
* Put links to those blogs on yours.
* Leave a message on the blogs of the people you’ve nominated.
* Enjoy your award!

Oh!! Speaking of awards, I completely forgot to pass on the one that Melissa recently sent my way… The Blogging Friends Forever Award! (It doesn’t mean I didn’t appreciate it Melissa, it has just been crazy busy around here…)

Let’s see, I will pass this BFF Gold Card Award (according to the rules below) to:

  1. Regina ~ The best BFF ever! 😉 I mean really, she went through all the trouble to leave me gazillion comments one night so she could claim that #1 spot on the top commenter’s list! Isn’t she sweet!
  2. Amy ~ I still love you Amy, even though you let Regina take your spot at the top. 😉
  3. Jamie ~ Who is very sweet and generous! We are still working on using some of the supplies she sent us back when TT made her Butterfly Lapbook! Thanks again Jamie!
  4. Michele ~ I am still hoping that someday we will be able to meet up for that cup of coffee… If only you lived closer!!! Oh well… I will have to give you a call to chat sometime soon!
  5. Aubrey ~ I am totally bummed that we hadn’t met before our Roadtrip to Nebraska! It would have been so fun to meet IRL!

*Once again, I seriously could keep going and going… but it is late, and I need to be going to bed!

Thank you Shelly, Mrs. L and Melissa for the Awards, it was very sweet of you all!

Goodnight, God Bless!


  1. Charlotte (WaltzingM)

    I am just now seeing this! Thanks so much. Today was such a crazy day. You brought a smile to my face! Thanks!

  2. Aubrey

    Wow, I’m flattered. Thanks for the compliment. I also wish that we’d been able to meet when you were here. Who knows? Perhaps someday you’ll come back. Have any more brothers-in-law in the seminary? 😉 You brought a smile to my face on an otherwise very LONG, tough day!

    Thanks for thinking of me Jessica! I wish we could sit and chat too 🙂 You have brightened a tough week for me…thank you my BFF!!!

  4. Amy

    Aww, thank you!!!
    I do have to admit that I only cheated a little to get to the top and was able to maintain the lead, till I changed my name from Amy Caroline to just Amy… and now with the move… but look out Regina… you can’t bet me!!
    Thank you Jess!!!

    Wow, am I ever in good company! Triple thanks to you and may our beloved St. Therese shower you and all your readers with roses this week of her feast day!

  6. Regina

    no no amy, i was still number one with the combined amy/amy caroline…and i am still number 1 baby!!

  7. Mary Machado

    Thank you, Jessica – I am very touched that you considered me in this company.

  8. Jamie Jo

    Thank you Jessica, I also am very touched to even be considered for this from you!!

    Blessings, and thank you my friend!

  9. Trina

    You are so sweet to include my blog on your list especially considering that I haven’t posted much lately. Somehow home-educating 6 of our 8 children has got me pressed for time!

  10. Jessica Gordon

    Well Regina… You got to the top quick, but you will fall off just as fast since it only takes into acct the last 500 comments. 😉

  11. Jessica Gordon

    Trina ~ I can’t imagine why?!?! 😉 Hope it is all going well!

  12. Jessica Gordon

    Aubrey ~ Nope… ALL hubby’s brothers are now priest. However, I do have 6 brothers, all single, so maybe there is hope!

    Jessica, I can’t believe I let a sweet post like this pass me by!!

    It has truly been a blessing to me to have discovered your blog. It should be me awarding this to *you*!! Thank you so much!

    I’m also liking “6th File Photo” meme you posted recently, and may just combine both things in a post of my own.

    Thanks again for thinking of me!

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.
