Wow what a story. That is so great about Joe, I know you are so proud of him!!


Amazing day!



I had a friend whose bull did something similar and the vet said lantana (weed). Spent days digging up that flower from her pastures.


I'm sorry, Kirsten - poor Mary! I too hope she finds out the cause of her cow's death. Let me know when/if you have extra milk to sell.


That was so sweet and sad to read. I had a few tears in my eyes. You are blessed. And you know it...that's a good combo:)


Thanks girls. Stephanie, We are having our rough patches also, believe me. But it is nice to see who they REALLY are, who you pray they are going to become once they get out of this puberty haze they are in! It was a beautiful thing to witness.


Got me all choked up this morning...


Oh poor Mary! I cannot imagine how this has affected their family. Thank you for sharing about the amazing young man Joe is becoming. It is encouraging to those of us who are going through a rough patch. :o)


My heart just felt this post. God Bless you and your friend and I hope the reason her cow died is discovered and she can have peace about this!
The picture of the cows are just lovely, the look so soft and gentle!


what a beautiful post! The loss of the cow was very sad!! the son become a man is amazing and the friendship through the bond of caring for these animals was so touching!!! remember if you ever have an overflow of milk..you know where to blog me!!:)

About Me

  • Hi, my name is Kirsten. I am married to my best friend and we have nine awesome children including our little saint in heaven, Thomas Joseph. We are Catholic, loving, living, and learning about our faith every day. We just moved to a fixer upper farm here in beautiful Kentucky. We also homeschool some of our children. I really enjoy COFFEE, reading, gardening, running, and knitting. I try to enjoy, laundry and cleaning bathrooms and sweeping floors. But what I really love is to be home, with my husband and children, living this life. This blog is where I write about the good stuff (mostly). Thanks for stopping by!

St Francis De Sales

Prayer to St. Joseph

  • PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH THE WORKMAN Composed by Pope St. Pius X O glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural inclinations, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering it an honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God, to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from weariness and difficulties, to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from self, having always death before my eyes and the account that I must render of time lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after thine example, O Patriarch, St. Joseph. Such shall be my watchword in life and in death. Amen.

A Considered Childhood by Elizabeth Foss

  • As much as I am able, every day, I will ensure that my child will: * Live the Liturgy * Experience loveliness * Breathe deeply: Fresh air and exercise * Serve others * Listen to, contemplate, and exchange ideas. * Develop expressive skills. * Practice logical reasoning. Math. * Receive focused attention and affection
