Shower of Photos 2009 :: Day 20

by | Apr 21, 2009 | Home Sweet Home, Pictures, Shower of Photos | 4 comments

One of my favorite day’s of Spring is the day that we hang our swing on the front porch!! Last year, due to our extremely long winter, we weren’t able to hang it until May. This year, since we have been having just gorgeous weather, hubby hung the swing for us Sunday night, since Monday’s symbol for the Garden of the Good Shepherd was “The Chairs.”

He also put together our new outdoor sofa as well, and we had such a lovely time reading books and doing schoolwork on the front porch!

 Snuggles is missing his jammies, but I just loved this last picture that hubby took!

Thank you all for all the birthday wishes for Chiquita.  She had a fun birthday!  I’ll try and post a few more pictures soon, but we have company coming over for lunch and another baseball game tonight… I hope you all have a great day!

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.
