Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!

by | Nov 24, 2011 | Thanksgiving | 7 comments

We just finished making this fun Turkey Veggie Platter, which was much easier than baking our turkey!   Now we are heading out to my parents home for our Thanksgiving Dinner, just as soon as I finish up the sweet potato casseroles.   

I have so very much to be thankful for today, including all of you – my online friends and visitors here at Shower of Roses.   Your prayers, support, and friendships have been such an amazing blessing!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!

    Your veggies look adorable. Hopefully they were 'gobbled' up! Sorry, just had to do it. Hope you had a beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving day with family!

    That is super cute! Your blog is one of the first that I began following a couple years ago. I'm grateful that I stumbled across it and went on to discover this wonderful "world" of Catholic homeschooling mamas! Happy belated Thanksgiving! God bless, Annita +JMJ+

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.
