I went on the internet and bought a small resin statue of the Blessed Virgin, 8" high that will 'watch' over my herb garden. She is dressed in a flowing blue robe and it is just beautiful. I can't wait to make her shrine there. I feel it will be a great way to bring up Mary to my ds, 2.5. He is a garden enthuasiast and I'm sure will ask questions.
I am also excited because I also bought a beautiful 'chaplet'. It is similar to a rosary but is shorter to say, it has twelve beads on it. I bought an 'Immaculate Conception' one, it has sapphire blue glass beads and a sterling silver Miraculas Medal attached to it. It is just beautiful. I'm hoping that this will induce me to start praying more to Our Lady. I've never had luck saying the rosary, it seems my mind wanders and it takes too long. I'm sure this is a dicipline thing, and maybe when I start saying this chaplet it will pave the way to my saying the rosary. I was just excited about this I had to share. Somehow I've been drawn to the Immaculate Conception lately. I don't know why, it may be because my own mother is gone and I am sorely in need of some mothering. I've always been a bit afraid of the Blessed Virgin Mary, I don't know why, I had never understood Her greatness before I had done some reading lately. Now I do not fear Her at all, and see her as a wonderful mother figure.
Hope everyone is well. Take care, Beth
