Blessed :: A Locket for Mother’s Day!

by | May 28, 2013 | Mother's Day, Thank You | 11 comments

I’ve been so excited to share a couple pictures of my beautiful new locket with you all, and finally have a chance to do so this morning!  This was an incredibly generous Mother’s Day gift from Tricia at Origami Owl, one of my dear visitors here at Shower of Roses!

The Large Locket includes a “blessed” tag, 7 birthstones – one for each of our living children, a rose, a camera, and the letter J.  There is also a Rose Dangle, representing the rose from St. Therese, which my husband happened to leave on my apartment doorstep on the 9th day of a novena (March 17, 1999) I prayed to her asking for a sign if he was who I was to marry (it was the first flower he ever gave me and did not know I was praying the novena!) along with a Small Locket containing a cross and two little hearts – one with tiny blue footprints – in memory of my babies in heaven.  It is just perfect and I love how it so beautifully “tells my story with jewelry.”

Tricia pointed out how easy it will be, especially for Catholic moms like myself with big and growing families, to continue to add charms as our family grows, and they are only $5 a charm!   There is no need to buy a whole new necklace each time a new baby arrives!  She also mentioned that, once you own the locket, you can change out the charms as often as you like, and move them to various other locket designs to change the look.

So far every time I’ve worn the locket I’ve had people ask me about it and comment on how it is so unique and pretty… Rose especially loves looking at my locket and pointing out all of the beautiful charms!

    You are so welcome, Jessica! I am glad it is holding up to all the love and handling it's getting. Let me know if there is ever any problem…

    PS I am still looking for a white rose dangle for you – they have been discontinued but sometimes there are designers who still have them in stock and are willing to trade. 🙂

    How beautiful; so unique and personal! Your dress with the knot accent at the waist is adorable- where is it from?

    God bless you,

    Thank you Sherri & Julie! I wish it was an inch or two longer, since it hits me right at the knee, but it is such a cute and comfy dress! {and makes me look thinner than I really am! lol} I love it!! I happened to find it at Target and pinned in here.

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.
