Mary’s Days are always a JOYous time for us. The Solemnity of the Annunciation is most special to our family. It is our renewal day of our Total Consecration. We attended Mass in the morning and renewed our consecration. Later, Sparkles and Sweetie acted out the Annunciation for their Nana & Papa. Rose made Angel food cupcakes topped with heaven’s clouds (whip cream) and strawberries. (YUMMY!) We also had goodies given to us from Father D. He is so generous with his gifts. May God Bless him and all our priests.
Later, we started our new Mary’s garden. For Sparkle’s 4th birthday we had a Mary party and all guests helped us plant a flower in our Mary garden. It was a sad farewell when we moved. Now at our new home, we’ve decided to add one flower for each Marian feast day. For the Annunciation we planted Marigolds (Mary’s bud) in a container. Yes, sadly the Mary’s garden will be in planters due to our lovely miniature yard that is not landscaped. We couldn’t wait another year! WE LOVE MARY!!!
