We have a lot of statues around our house but my favorite is probably the statue of Mary that we have outside. It has weathered many a storm and has even fallen over, yet she still stands keeping an eye on our home.
I like this statue because I got it towards the beginning of my reversion back to the faith and the man who made it used blessed water and put a blessed Miraculous Medal inside of it.
We got my mom one of these one year, but believe it or not someone stole it off her front porch one year right before Mother's Day - in the middle of the day no less. There was a crew of guys working down the street and we figured maybe one of them knew their mother or wife would really like it. I guess.
Anyhow, the Blessed Mother holds a special place in my heart and I love looking at her out my kitchen windows.
