I DIDN’T gain anything this week!!! In fact, I actually lost a whole HALF of a pound. Yippee for me! Actually, this really isn’t all that bad, considering last Wednesday I was already down 3 pounds after having the flu… Plus, I REALLY blew it this weekend… Hubby got home Friday night, and we went out for Prawn Fajitas, Saturday morning my sweet Auntie treated me to a pedicure (I love my toes right now!) and Red Robin for lunch (bad, bad, bad…yet, OH so GOOD!!), Saturday night we went to a birthday party, and unlike Regina (who was good and ordered salad), I had delicious Tuscon pizza and cake, and Sunday there was even MORE cake! So, let’s see if I can do better this next week–I really need to add in a bit of exercise! To see what everyone else lost this past week, visit Regina (who is down 3.6 pounds…WAY TO GO REGINA!!!).

Anyhow, I HAVE been making progress with my decluttering… Today, I loaded up the back of the van (for the third time this week), and made yet another drop at Goodwill. I am starting to feel a little less claustrophobic!! Currently Hubby and I are “Hashing it out!” and trying to determine just how the rooms in our home should be used… It is actually

quite fun! I am loving our decluttered Master Bedroom!! It is quite peaceful now… I will try and post some pictures soon. SO, how are you all doing?

    Not good. Prayers would be appreciated! Illness has me down when I was already feeling a little blue. Thanks for asking!

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.
