May Crowning

What a terrific way to celebrate the end of our Co-op this year. The children processed around the parking lot with flowers for Mary. And crowned her with a wreath and rosary. The moms did our best to carry a tune or too, hopefully Mary appreciated the effort, even if off-key!
Many, many thank yous to all the moms for filling in for me, when I dropped out of the classes I volunteered to lead. I tried to uphold my last remaining responsibility, Coffee Lady, as best I could. On Wednesdays, I would think, "this is what it has come to, at least I bring the coffee!"

In honor of our mother, Mary:
___
Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee. (Luke 1:28)
Blessed art thou amongst women and
blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. (Luke 1:42)
Holy Mary, Mother of God (Luke 1:43),
pray for us sinners (Acts 8:24),
now and at the hour of our death (Luke 18:1).
___
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of Good Remedy.
That we may deepen our dedication to thy Son,
and make the world alive with His Spirit.

Thank you Peggy for all you do at co-op. You have always been one of the first to say "I can do that" and you make great coffee! It takes a very strong woman to not do what she "wants" to do and to do what God intends her to, and also to know the limitations of each. I struggle between these each day - duties/me.
Thanks again for all you do. May God bless your family with a peaceful and joyful summer!

Beautiful picture! Mary and kids in the foreground, moms behind the lens, Ketchie Creek Bakery in the background... very representative. :) I don't know what happened to the Gareis family yesterday. They would have added quite a few bodies to that photo!
