Walking at the Track

by | Jan 15, 2009 | Nature, WoW | 6 comments

Last spring I use to walk the track at the local Middle School with a friend, while our children played together… Unfortunately she moved, and I have just not been that motivated. However, yesterday, since we were in town already, we decided to go for it and check that off the list. It was so much fun and so nice to be out in the sun! I kept having to remind myself that it is still January!

We were all thrilled when 3 of my brothers showed up! (One of the benefits to living in a small town and coming from a big family!!)

They played with Captain and Rascal, and occasionally joined me and my stroller full of little ones.

Before long, Snuggles was fast asleep in his big sister’s arms and I had made it around 8 times (2 miles).

Today is just as beautiful, so I am going to log off and head outside for some more sunshine. I am sure winter will be returning soon!

    What a contrast in posts from yours to most of us mid-westerner posts!!! (the weather)

    So glad you got out to walk, I bet it felt great!!!

    Also, I hope those vitamins work out for you, so glad you figured it out.

    I was thinking along the same lines… it was 9 degrees here (OH) when I just went to get groceries (we were out of everything when this winter storm hit!), and the wind chill is supposed to be -20 until Saturday! Enjoy your fresh air and sunshine! We’ll be praying for you and that the vitamins will help tremendously as well.

    Sounds like the weather is just what the doctor ordered. Praise God! Teresa

    funny, i just read (after we spoke on the phone) in a magazine about vitamin d deficiency.
    tell paul to get a haircut (as usual, and tell him hi for me and that i in some weird way kinda miss him) 😉

    You’re lucky it’s nice enough to do this! I’m also impressed that you have the stamina to make yourself do it!

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.
