On this Day O Beautiful Mother
In honor of October being dedicated to the Holy Rosary we would like to begin a new feature, O Beautiful Mother Monday's. Every Monday we'll share a story of how Mary our Mother has touched our lives and we hope you all will share your stories with us too!
If you have read the about us page, you know our companies name, On This Day Designs, was inspired by the song "On This Day, O Beautiful Mother." It has a special meaning for our family because our mother, Joan Minardi, sang this song at all our weddings. Mom had a beautiful devotion to Mary and went so far as to dedicate all her children into the Blessed Mother's care. It was a great comfort to her knowing the responsibility of raising eight children could be placed in Mary's hands.
Growing up Mary was everywhere in our home, from the two foot statue sitting on a shelf in our foyer to the grotto in our backyard. We knew Mary was always available to listen to our troubles and intercede for us, to her Son, on our behalf. To Jesus through Mary.
Not only do we want to share Mary's love in our lives with you, we would love to hear times when you too felt Mary's touch in your lives. Either share your stories in the comment sections of our blog posts, on our facebook page or you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Peace and Joy from all the sisters at On This Day Designs!
