A Prayer Request and Giveaway Winners
With all those fun giveaways last week, I had quite a few entry slips to cut and fold today! It was actually just what I needed to help stop the tears and keep my mind off missing my babies…
Before the furlough, Sean was scheduled to take his vacation leave beginning today and had planned to take some of our children to visit his parents. (It has been 3 years since our last visit and they haven’t met our youngest yet… We would have loved to all go, but we can’t all fit in our mini-van – especially for this long of a drive – since we are one seat short, which is why it’s been so long since our last visit.) We went back and forth over canceling the trip, but decided to not put the visit off any longer, especially with winter (hazardous driving conditions) coming. He ended up taking the five youngest (he is a
crazy brave man!) and I am home with just the older boys (it is so quiet here). Could you please remember them in your prayers?
Anyways, on to the winners of the giveaways, before I start crying again…

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.
