Thank You Blessed Mother... We Love You

On the Beautiful Solemnity of the Annunciation we thank Our Blessed Mother.  For it was through her Yes that she became all Our Mothers.  I am reminded of my son who received his first communion last spring.  During the Mass he received a rose.  As we were leaving the Church and reaching the car, he asked if he could go and see Our Lady.  We said yes and he was off running around the other side of the Church.  As we turned the corner, we saw him kneeling in front of Our Lady.  He gave her his rose and kissed her on the head. It was a beautiful moment between a mother and her child.  For Our Lady is always leading us to her Son in the Eucharist and it was a beautiful end to the morning to see Kostin thanking his Heavenly Mother and through these little gestures showing his love.

I may share that Kostin struggles with many things and there are many times that he feels misunderstood and we as parents struggle with patience and understanding.  We are so grateful to Our Lady for her help guiding him, when we find ourselves lacking in so much.

It is truly a beautiful thing to have Our Heavenly Mother supporting us in this challenging role as parents.  We ourselves need also to be gently taken by the hand and led just as she does with these little ones.  She will help us we have only to come to her.
