I can’t believe it! I just posted about Marygrace’s birthday today, and not too long after that I got the most wonderful surprise. You have to read it to understand why I am so thrilled. This is a baby I prayed for to Our Lady of Fatima. And now she’s here again, just when I started a novena for the same intentions.

The three middle kids and I are members of the Legion of Mary. One of our weekly assignments is to pick up and deliver the Pilgrim Virgin Mary to those who signed up to have Our Lady in their homes for a week.

I was trying to coordinate the times for pick-up and delivery for this afternoon, and as it turned out, the family that was supposed to get her tonight was not going to be around, so we have been blessed to have Our Lady here for Marygrace’s birthday, and we will deliver her tomorrow morning after Mass. I can’t believe what a wonderful gift we have been given. God is so amazing! What an incredible surprise; to have our Blessed Mother here on such a special day. It’s also our baby’s feast day, the feast of St. Angela Merici.

Here she is, on our altar. She is so beautiful. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
