You’d never know that Chiquita’s flowers had been forgotten and that her bouquet was actually a couple “extra” corsages that I tied together at the very last second, would you? 😉

    That cannot be your mom……..or can it? You have her smile all right so it must be her. She looks like one of her young daughters, honest! Amazing family you have, simply amazing! Those children are absolute dolls too! They should be on a magazine cover! Thanks for sharing with your blog families! God bless.

    Yes, that is my mom. My mom was 21 when she and my dad were married, and I was born 9 months later (to the day!). Mom is 52 now and Dad just turned 54. I have young parents. =) In fact, our oldest is just 4 years younger than my youngest brother.

    With all said, cannot overlook (and almost did) how lovely the wedding couple looked. Very handsome brother and beautiful bride! What a wonderful and memorable occasion. Don't you just love weddings? Well, not planning for them, but attending them sure is wonderful 🙂 lol!

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.
