Busy, busy…

by | May 8, 2009 | Uncategorized | 5 comments

We had our last Little Flowers meeting yesterday, which was lovely and I’ll share more about it soon, but today I am off to a doctor’s appointment this morning and then lots of errands for our Little Flowers Tea Party tomorrow. My girls are SO excited!! Tomorrow night we are also attending a Fundraiser for the Hadley’s. We have plans for Sunday and Monday too, so it is going to be a very busy few days…

Before I go, I thought I’d post one more picture from my trip to Washington that Christine just sent. (Thanks Christine!)

L to R: Michelle (A super sweet woman I met–I wish I could remember her blog!), Suzanne (Who I was so excited to meet as well!), and me (looking very tired!)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and hopefully I can find the time to post a few Little Flower pictures soon! God Bless!

    Here here!

    That’s the ump-teenth time you’ve mentioned a doctor appointment/blood work, Jessica, and your readers are getting suspicious and wondering!

    Hi Jessica–

    James from Fratres here.

    Enjoyed spending time with your beautiful family following Mass(last month?) at St. Annes.

    Thanks to inspirations such as yourself, we begin home schooling this next fall… (Seton)

    Blood work? looks like another prayer need… How about at the moment my Gabriel crowns Our Lady at Holy Mass this week? Lots of intercessors about at that moment, don’t you think?

    Speaking of which, would you be kind enough to link up with this exhortation and novena below:


    Plus, if you find it worthy pass it on to all. Thanks.

    Also, I would like to explore your husband’s website. If you would send me the link–with his permission…

    Grace. Blessings. Peace. Life…

    So glad you had fun with your friends at the homeschooling conference, Jessica! I am heading to one in Michigan in June with a friend of mine. I’ll be signing and selling Olivia and the Little Way and I am looking forward to meeting everyone.

    Am praying for you too!

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.
