{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you’re inspired to do the same, visit Soulemama to leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see.

    Am not sure I've ever commented before but I have to tell you how inspiring and wonderful your blog is! I enjoy reading it and seeing how well you are able to incorporate the Catholic faith into your children's daily lives. I have been a homeschooling aunt for over ten years and have never been able to do a smidge of what you are doing. Bravo!

    I also think you might enjoy reading one of my new books this year. It's available from Amazon.com – The Gift of Summer Snow – A TAle from the Garden of Mysteries. It features St. Theresa and her little way. I'd be glad to send you one – my treat – because I have so enjoyed and will continue to enjoy your wonderful blog.

    Many blessings for the most blessed of New Years' Donna Alice Patton

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.
