On Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all my dear visitors here at Shower of Roses. I hope you are having a lovely day! My husband and children surprised me with pretty flowers and the sweetest handmade cards! (Oh! And even my own copy of that brand new CD! Yay!!) Like last year, the children painted little flower pots at the store while Sean and I shopped for garden plants yesterday afternoon. They were all so excited to show me their creations early this morning! Thank you God for blessing me with such a wonderful family!

O Good God, we thank Thee, that Thou hast given us children, made them heirs of heaven by holy baptism, and entrusted to us their training. Penetrate us with a sense of responsibility; assist us in the care of their health, but especially in the preservation of their innocence and purity of heart. Grant that we may teach them early to know and serve Thee, and to love Thee, with their whole heart. Grant that we ourselves may carefully avoid all that we must forbid them, and may assiduously practice all that we should inculcate to them. We commend them, O God, to Thy paternal care and to the guardianship of Thy holy angels. Bless, O heavenly Father, our little efforts! May our children's advancement in years be to Thy honor, and may they persevere to the end! Amen.
~ Prayer of Mothers for their Children, Mother Love


  1. Happy Mother's Day to you! I very much enjoy following your blog and your beautiful family. Hope you're having a wonderful day!

  2. What lovely flowers, Jess, and what wonderful little blessings you have! I am always cheered by your posts! I could learn something from you--mine have been so dismal lately I'm afraid no one is reading them.

  3. Thank you Jessica. I hope you had a peaceful day. Just returned from my dh surgery. Please keep us in your prayers. I will keep you in mine. You are a wonderful mother.

  4. Jessica,

    Happy mother's day. Greetings from Brazil.

    Our blog - you already follow and read -, Domestica Ecclesia, has a post on that date celebrated here in Brazil, too.

    God bless you and your beautiful family!
