On St. Valentine’s Day

by | Feb 15, 2010 | Little Flowers, St. Valentine's Day, Thank You | 5 comments

~ A Gift of Meals ~

Valentine Cookies, Banana Bread, Chicken Enchiladas, Vegetable Lasagna, 
Green Enchiladas, and Turkish Spinach and Lentil Soup all made
 by a local Little Flowers Group (as a service project) for our family!   
This was such a wonderful surprise and couldn’t have come at a better time.  
Thank you girls!!!  I can’t tell you how very much it was appreciated!
~ Fruit Smoothies ~

A fun, yet fairly healthy, snack for my recovering children.  
(We still have lots of coughing around here, and a somewhat congested baby. 
 Please pray that she gets better quickly and doesn’t get any worse…)
~ Valentine Treats ~

The kids made a batch of Valentine Dots as a gift for their Dad 
and I made little bags of White Chocolate Pop Corn (sprinkled with M&M’s and XO’s) for eveyone. 
~ Valentine’s Day Picture Books ~

 Who needs real flowers when we have our beautiful little “Rose?”

However coffee is always greatly appreciated! 
Thank you Honey! 

“Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor… Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.”  ~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Hope you all had a lovely St. Valentine’s Day!

    That is so wonderful! The LF did somethigng like that for us once, but I wasn't home so I didn't know who to thank! I kept asking the people at home who it was but they just kept saying little flowers. Sigh.
    Looks like you had a lovely day and I pray you all will get better soon. Hubby was real sick too. 🙁

    Sounds like sickness is raging everywhere! Will keep you in our prayers. Glad you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!!

    Sending up prayers for your little Rose, that she doesn't get worse and for the rest of you to recover quickly. I'm so sorry to hear that you all were sick.

    May God bless you and Happy Shrove Tuesday!

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.
