I have so many pictures I would love to share, but they are going to have to wait… I’ve been too busy enjoying and snuggling with this sweet little guy, who doesn’t like to be put down for more than 10-20 minutes at a time – day or night.   Not that I’m complaining, I just seem to have forgotten how to multitask.  ðŸ˜‰

These pictures were taken during one of those brief hands-free moments this afternoon, allowing me to play with another favorite Christmas gift!  As you can see, I’m not the only one that Bud has wrapped around his tiny fingers!

I hope you are all having a very peaceful and blessed Christmastide!

    Of all women, Jessica- YOU will never *forget* how to multitask. 🙂 But you are indeed tending to more important things. Happy New Year!

    Adorable – both Bud and Snuggles! I had noticed in one photo in the "My Guys" post, too, that Snuggles seemed enchanted, sweetly reaching out to touch his baby brother. –Danielle

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.
