We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    Happy 4th!! Or, happy 5th, since it is the 5th today! We just got back from vacation!

    I’m not going to every comment box, but have to say, I totally loved the “sisters” post!! You have such a beautiful family!! You do NOT look old! Tell your mom that I looked at the pictures first then read and thought she was one of your sisters, maybe one close to your age!!!! She is beautiful, just like the rest of you!

    I really loved your swim teacher! What a great opportunity to be able to take lessons like that, by someone so wonderful, wow!

    Zoo pictures were great and happy birthday to your sweet baby!!!! The turtle cake turned out great!!!

    Ballerina Rosie’s birthday is coming up and she is doing a flower theme and the cake looks similar, only it will be a flower!

    I have to tell you, I have a hard time coming here and leaving comments, because when I do, the computer acts really, reallly slow and can hardly move it, it gets jerky and haves delayed responses. So far today, good though!

    I try to read as much as I can in Google Reader, but there’s only a little in it, like part of a paragraph!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

    I’m still here, still loving you, still reading though, when I can!
    I HAVE slowed on comments though, everywhere, trying to stay on that balance thing!

    Have a great weekend Jessica! Many blessings to you!

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.
