Photographing gladiolas

In ways only explained by God's grace, these flowers have brought so much joy in my heart these few weeks. I thank you, Lord! I grabbed the camera today and played with different angles, lenses, and locations.

Mother Teresa, beautiful short video

Today it is Mother Teresa's birthday. Number Five has a devotion to her and shared this beautiful video on social media. Mother Teresa will be canonized later this year.

New School Year

Amazing this was four years ago--these two are so much the same in their literary conversations. Here's the blog post I mention.  

We said a morning prayer in the car on the way to school. The post came from that prayer.

Summer days

It is a flower-filled summer
The boys enjoy being together again
Did I mention flowers?
Such beauty, a few steps away

Number Seven practiced colorguard drills all summer
Saint Anne enjoys the many flowers
Some jam-making

Number Three starting his new life here 
dinner parties...
Can't Help taking photos of them
New screen doors! Cool breeze flows though the house now...

A dream realized!

A dream realized: today I brought our own, home grown, gladiolas to the Blessed Mother! Many friends asked me to pray for their intentions. My heart is so thankful!
