Using Apostrophes Correctly
My last couple post were really bothering me… I kept wondering if I had used the correct punctuation on “Girl’s” and “Boy’s” in my post titles… They just didn’t look right. If you haven’t noticed by now, grammar has never been one of my strong points. (I even failed the placement test when I arrived at Christendom and needed to take Grammar 101… )
Anyhow, I did a quick Google search for “the correct use of an apostrophe” and found
the following rule:
To show plural possession, make the noun plural first. Then immediately use the apostrophe.
It was just what I was looking for and I corrected my last couple posts… Now I know, and perhaps I’ll be able to sleep tonight! 😉
P.S. Please overlook any new grammar errors in this post! I’m still learning…
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.
