One Week Later…

I finally received a phone call from Hubby, and he is actually ON HIS WAY HOME!!!  The job he was doing on this particular fire is completed and, with a holiday weekend coming up, the fire management wanted to get as many men off the clock as possible.  It will be so nice to have him home!  

Right now I am going to get busy picking up around here and planning a “real” dinner for the first time since last Thursday.  ðŸ˜‰   Thank you all for your prayers for his safety.   I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!

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.
