I quietly captured this moment from his bedroom door the other night without being seen… It always melts my heart to catch our children praying again on their own after being sent to bed!

    O my goodness!!!! Is that Snuggles? What a precious moment. Enough to make any heart melt away. God bless you and your family always!!!

    Yes, that is Snuggles! ♥

    It reminded Sean and I of a time when Rascal was a toddler. We heard him talking in his room, peeked in and he was kneeling on his bed, looking up at the crucifix above, and holding up two fingers. He said "I'm two!" I giggled from behind the cracked door and he quickly got back under his covers. Such a precious moment that I will remember forever!

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.
