Home again…

… after two weeks and 3,431 miles!!!

We are so thankful that we were able to make a last minute road trip to visit my Hubby’s parents in Arizona and (finally!) introduce them to our little Rose!  It had been 2 1/2 years (way too long!) since we saw them last.

We had a great time and I have all sorts of pictures to share, but first I need to put the groceries away, unpack, start the laundry, and get ready for the First Sunday of Advent!

I hope you all had a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

    Welcome home and I'm so glad you had a safe journey. We traveled a similar distance for over a decade and I know how worth it, it is to see family, but the trip is so very challenging at times!

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.
