On Easter Day ~ Brunch at My Parents

by | Apr 14, 2009 | Easter, My Siblings, Pictures | 6 comments

On Easter morning we were up bright and early to attend the first Mass of the day at our local parish. After Mass we headed out to my parents home for Brunch. My mom made a delicious Ham and Egg breakfast, with stir-fried vegetables, fruit, pancakes, and toast. It was delicious!

Even though only 4 of my siblings were home (the youngest 4, who still live at home), it was still really nice. One of my mom’s sisters also came for Easter, with her husband and one of her daughters, and one other friend of my parents from Church. Two more of my brothers were headed out for dinner, but we had left by the time they arrived.

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.
