Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Every Thursday, at Like Mother, Like Daughter!

Pretty & Happy


Here is my oldest First Holy Communion dress, my mother-in-law is bring from Mexico City, a Spanish dress. I have been looking from sometime and I couldn't find one that I like, they all seem to be shelves less and since I can't sew.
I just hope we don't have to adjust to much for her size!
I am very happy with it!


Funny!

Here she is.. Miss America being the clown! She is just too much for two years old. But if you ask her how old she is, she will tell you, I am not two but five years old! Lord, Help me!

Can you feel the love!


Real.


(Invitations made by my very talent sister-in-law)
My oldest is going to have her First Holy Communion in August and its a shock to me. She will receive the most love in the whole world. She will have to also go to confession and be accountable for her sins. That scares me. Why? Have I done enough to prepare her for the most beautiful day of her life? or more important, Have I shown her through my examples how to Love Him?

Hi Cecilia, I think that is something we all worry about at mothers... did we prepare our child enough to love, trust and to serve God? As Pope Benedict XVI said most recently, "faith building starts in the home with the parents."

I love the pictures of your children. They are so precious! Your daughter will look beautiful in her lovely First Holy Communion dress! God Bless!
