It wasn’t an easy decision to make but it was covered in prayer and brought to direction, I have moved on from leading Little Flowers. I spent a total of six years leading a Little Flowers group for my daughters and community. Ultimately, that’s why I do it, to fulfill my vocation as a mother to my girls to serve my community – ALL FOR! It has been challenging at times due to my many limitations but Dad and the kids support me in all ways possible. A break from all leadership roles has sounded ideal to me on more than one occasion. Yet, the good Lord, often times through my husband, encourages me on – to grow, to serve, and to love!
I was led this year to step down from one role to fill another. I will now lead Rosa Mystica Girls’ Society (RMGS), a group of girls from ages 9-13, forty-one girls to be exact. A dedicated and talented mother within my parish community created RMGS. She successfully led the girls in domestic skills, devotion to Our Lady, and a baby blanket ministry for the local pregnancy resource home for several years. She had to move on from leadership this year due to a new season in her life. Her shoes could not be filled without His grace, the grace that prompted me to rally a partner and serve once again.
Sparkles is a member of RMGS, Sweetie will spend another year in Little Flowers, and Rose continues to be actively enrolled in Sodality. I’m praying for the grace and energy to persevere in this task that I have been called to.
Our Lady of the Mystical Rose, pray for us!
