Happy feast day, St. Therse!

Today is the feastday of the patron saint of this blog, St. Therese of Liseux, aka the Little Flower. Hopefully that shows where the "Petals" part of the blog title derives. :)

St. Therese has been a wonderful heavenly friend to me throughout the years. I really like her "Little Way" of doing small things for God with great love. One of my favorite books based on her teachings is I Believe in Love. St. Therese has also sent me many roses in answer to prayers or requests for help. I carried roses in my wedding bouquet in honor of her.

St. Therese, pray for us!

I think it's so neat that so many of us consider St. Therese our special Saint (or patron Saint)... she's not technically a Saint for fertility, but I'm sure that she is happy to pray and intercede for all of us in our struggle with it :)

I think you're right, TCIE. :) Also, whenever we finally become mothers, we should have some celebratory gelato.
