I mentioned the other day that we ordered glasses (including an extra pair at a discount) for our 11 year old daughter this past Wednesday. We were told that they would take about 7-10 days, but on Friday they called to say the glasses had already arrived. Sean took her to pick them up after Hockey yesterday morning. She is still getting used to wearing them but I think she looks adorable… and so grown up!

    They look great on her and I agree she looks very grown up. She seems like such a sweet girl. My little girl loves to try on glasses in the store and thinks it'd be 'cool' to wear them. She may get her wish because my husband has very poor vision and she might inherit it.

    Very pretty! I like how natural both pair look on her! Was she shocked at how different everything looked? Great choices!

    Like Genevieve said, they look so natural on her! She looks beautiful. I don't know if I've ever seen glasses make someone look even prettier, but these do. I mean it in a totally good way. It's not that you weren't pretty before, Twinkle Toes, but you look really pretty in glasses! Both pair are really nice. Love the photos! 🙂

    Beautiful. She looks so grown up. Wow, changes for you (braces) and her (glasses) and yet the beauty of the soul shines right through. Praying for you all as we begin the season of Advent.

    She looks so grown up with glasses – and you look so much younger with braces! What a lovely young lady, Jessica.

    She looks like quite the young lady with those glasses on. I love seeing how your children have grown up on your website. She went from a little girl to a beautiful young lady.

    Your daughter looks just beautiful in her new glasses. I really like the frames. The frames are always such a difficult decision. Her smile is captivating. She reminds me of the sweet American Girl "Molly"! Another big step for your oldest daughter as she grows towards womanhood. She is a just lovely…

    So agree with you, Jessica! Your daughter looks lovely in her new glasses – very classy looking young lady & so grown-up, too! Wishing your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.

    Both pairs look great. You are a smart girl to choose to embrace this change. It will make a huge difference to how you learn and enjoy things. Love that smile!

    Adorable, indeed! I love glasses and thanks to a wonderful online site, I can buy prescription glasses for a ridiculously low price (most under $50 including lenses). I have at least 12 (maybe more) pairs to coordinate with any outfit or even my mood for the day! She is just beautiful! Happy Thanksgiving, Jessica, Sean, and family! +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.
