Shower of Photos 2009 :: Day 1

by | Apr 2, 2009 | Shower of Photos | 8 comments

Hummm… What to post for April’s Shower of Photos? I still haven’t been able to come up with a theme… I’m thinking that maybe I’ll focus on things that make make me smile.

There is just one small problem with that… The one and only picture I took today makes me cry instead of smile… Yep, my favorite statue of St. Therese, a gift from hubby, was accidentally knocked over by an obnoxious big blue exercise ball that my children are NOT suppose to play with a couple of my children (who then felt awful). The statue fell over, breaking off her finger and part of the flowers, and even left a dent in the wall… It could have been worse, but I cried just the same. It has been one of those days!

I just couldn’t post the picture. So, I searched through my photos to find one that would make me smile.

It didn’t take long! This picture was taken on Monday, and is of Chiquita and her little friend. Aren’t they precious!?! There is nothing better than good friends and nice big hugs!

HaPpy ApRiL FrIenDs!

    Since it is just her hand and flower, I am hoping that I can have someone repair it. maybe?

    i have an army of statues with broken fingers! i don’t know if there is a way to keep them from getting broken-other than storing them somewhere-but then we couldn’t enjoy them!
    and yes, those little girls are darling!

    I hope that some super glue could work?? What do you think? I am so sorry!

    They are so cute, but I am biased, lol! That is such a sweet picture!

    No, super glue won’t fix it… The little pieces were shattered. A bit of paint might disguise it though.

    Oh no! I’m so sorry you lost your statue. It’s frustrating when special things get broken around the house.

    Cute picture!

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.
