Even though my birthday came and went a week ago, my friends continue to spoil me!! Last night, at Little Flowers, Amy surprised me with a lovely little gift bag containing a beautiful mug, a Barnes & Noble gift card, and the most delicious smelling freshly ground coffee EVER!! I keep picking up the packet just to smell it! YUM!!!

Also, this past Sunday I came home from the March for Life to find a little gift box with three beautiful bracelets handmade by my friend Marci!! Not only that, she made them in the perfect colors to complement most of my clothes. (I tend to wear mostly browns, blacks/whites, or greens. I wear pink too, and Marci said she was going back and forth between the green and pink!)

Thank you Amy and Marci!!! You really shouldn’t have, but I am glad you did. I LOVE the gifts!!!!

Now I am off to to brew a pot of that coffee and try and decide just which book to get with that gift card… (Do you all have any suggestions for me?!?!)

I’ll be back later to share some pictures from Little Flowers. We had a great time as usual!

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.
