Extraordinary Measures :: The Inspirational Quilt

by | Jan 14, 2010 | Hadley Hope | 5 comments

Just after posting the video about our friends the Hadleys earlier today, I recieved an email from another friend letting us know about the upcoming movie, Extraordinary Measures, staring Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford.  This movie was inspired by the story of John Crowley, a man who defied conventional wisdom and great odds to pursue a cure for his children’s life threatening disease.

To celebrate Crowley’s story, the Inspirational Quilt was created as a way to support charities.

The Hadley’s video has been submitted to this sweepstakes, which will end on January 29th!! Each and every vote they receive (You can vote daily!) will gain them an additional entry into a random drawing for a chance to receive a $10,000 contribution to their charity from CBS films.

I’ve already casted my vote for the Hadleys video today!  Won’t you please join me in supporting Hadley Hope in this way?  It only takes a second!  Thank you!!

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.
