In addition to our family traditions, my older boys started a tradition of their own a couple years ago! The first year it started with them reenacting The Way of the Cross with their Playmobil Toys. Last year I was delighted to find their toys set up for Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday! This year I found their toys set up on Palm Sunday (don’t you just love all the little palms they cut out of paper!), Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday. It looks like they used their Nativity Set, Romans, Knights, Vikings, Pirate Treasure Chest (Garden and Stone for Tomb), Dragon Rock (Tomb), and King’s Knight (Flag). They have always done this all on their own, with no encouragement from me, and I think it is so sweet.
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.
