Fill yourself with confidence. The mother we have is the Mother of God, the Most Blessed Virgin, the Queen of Heaven and Earth. (St. Josemaria Escriva)
Meet Amy Ross. She’s the mother of 5 pretty amazing children and the wife of a fabulous husband named Hugh. I’m pretty sure she’s a Purdue grad and a pharmacist. I’ve known Amy for many years as our kiddos all attended school at St. Louis de Montfort Catholic School in Fishers at the same time.
For a time, I attended a book club with Amy where the group discussed some of the most interesting and inspiring spiritual reads. I remember one such get together at Amy’s home and her mom was staying with her at the time. I was deeply moved by the respectful way she included her mom in the meeting, despite her limitations. I had already witnessed on several occasions her beautiful example of faith to her own children as well as the rest of us but that day I realized what a humble and holy woman Amy is, and how much there is to learn from watching her care for those around her.
Amy Ross is upbeat and funny. She’s thoughtful and affirming, a woman who seems to face whatever comes her way with a positive attitude. I know her to be a tuned-in, and hands-on mom with a glorious smile who is grateful to God for the blessings in her life. She loves cheering for her kids at all their events! When I hear her name mentioned, I feel positive energy. She’s a woman who reminds me by her example to focus on all that is good.
Because she loves the Blessed Mother and is such a truly wonderful mom herself, I chose this quote about Mary to share with you all today in her honor. I’m long overdue to tell you that the little ways you bring light into the world each day, Amy, make a BIG difference for the rest of us. Keep on going! You light up the place!
