My 2nd Blogoversary!

by | May 12, 2009 | Happy Anniversary, Why Blog? | 9 comments

As of today I have been blogging for TWO YEARS!!  I can hardly believe that it has already been another year…Where does the time go??

Last year, I posted a few thoughts and reasons why I have grown to love blogging so much.  Not much has changed, but I didn’t want today to go by without telling all my dear visitors thank you once again!  Thank you for your prayers, advice, encouragement, and friendships.  You all have been such a blessing and have made blogging such a joy!  May God reward 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.
