    Love that smirk on Snuggles' face. 🙂 I have one that doesn't like to have his photo taken … is that Snuggles, too?

    Happy Easter to your family!

    Thank you everyone!

    Nope, Clare never did get sick! Thankfully!

    As for the smirk on Snuggles face, it is actually caused by a mouthful of jelly beans… which was the only way I could get him to sit still for a second. He actually loves getting his picture taken and will, on occasion, ask me to take it and then proceed to give me the cheesiest smile EVER. I'll have to post a picture of it sometime. 🙂

    Happy Easter! Glad to see all the smiles. We just went through all the bad colds in our home. I hope everyone feels well soon.

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.
