My Favorite Quotes:

A person's a PERSON no matter how small... -Dr. Seuss

I am a little pencil in the hand of God who is sending a love letter to the world. - Mother Teresa

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to THINK, than WHAT to think- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men. - James Beattie

May is the Month for Mary!

I am sooo behind on blogging, but I had to share a very special day that we celebrated  on May 5th.  I have always loved May Crownings for Mary and so this year I decided to do a Mini-May Crowning with my Pray and Play Church group.  We had our pastor from our church, Father Michael, come to my house and bless my new Mary statue and also give a blessing to all the mothers that were there as well.   All the children put carnations in vases around the statue of Mary and then afterwards we said the rosary as usual.  Then we all shared a yummy lunch that the moms made and picnicked out in the backyard.  It was a really lovely event!
 Crown we made from pipe cleaner and pink baby's breath.
