Picking Berries at the Strawberry Patch

“It is the sweet, simple things of life 
which are the real ones after all.” 
— Laura Ingalls Wilder

We got up early this morning to go pick strawberries with friends! 🍓🍓🍓
“Live in each season as it passes: 
breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit.”
— Henry David Thoreau

The girls helped bake this Naturally Sweetened Fresh Strawberry Pie for dessert with some of our strawberries. We are hoping to go pick more to freeze sometime soon… We’ll see! 

(I also just ordered a copy of Strawberry Girl to read this week too!)

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.
