Happy Birthday, Baby Jesus!

She was wide awake most of the night, after getting home from Midnight Mass. 

I took these sweet pictures of her discovering Baby Jesus at 3:30 AM Christmas morning. 

Thankfully she slept for a few hours before the rest of the kids woke up! 

Merry Christmas!

    Oh my goodness, where did your newborn go?!? What a sweet picture! Our ten month old woke up with a fever at 5am on Christmas, then the 2 year old woke up sick at 9am and after hubby took the older ones to Grandmas for Christmas dinner I realized "I" had a fever. SMH. Thank goodness Christmas isn't one day!

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.
