Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!

by | Nov 22, 2012 | Pumpkin Patch, Thanksgiving | 11 comments

We are home from Mass, the turkey is in the oven (my mom and little sister came over after Mass to help!), the boys are playing football in the years with their Uncle David (my youngest brother), and more of my family will be coming over soon!

I have so very much to be thankful for today, including all of you – my online friends and visitors here at Shower of Roses.  I can’t tell you how much I treasure your friendships, prayers and support! May God bless you all!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!

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.
