The blessings that God has showered upon us are sometimes overwhelming when we stop and think about all that we have received.
The greatest gift we have received from God are the 12 living - and one deceased - children we have been given for this short time on earth. We pray that they become Saints, knowing, loving, and serving God in whatever vocation they are called to.
