To all of you that are waiting for me to email you back, I have a little problem…

Yesterday, while a friend and I were installing closet organizers in the boy’s new bedroom (which I would MUCH rather be posting about!), my computer caught a virus. The good thing is my anti-virus seemed to catch and remove the virus, at least I think it did? The bad thing is it also seemed to remove my email program and all its contents. I am realizing that I have relied WAY too much on my email program for saving all sorts of things — contact info and addresses, receipts for online orders, some photos that were sent via email, post ideas for Catholic Cuisine and here, links, and TONS of correspondence that I had saved for some reason or another.

I was really worried since when I looked at my backup CD’s (of pictures, files, etc.) the last ones were dated October of 2007 — Whoops! Seriously, time is FLYING! Thankfully none of my files seemed to be infected and I am now up to May of 2008 as I try and backup my photos (I think I might take too many!?!) and need to head to the store to buy some more disks. I think I might take my computer in at the same time and see if my emails can be recovered.

Ahhhhhh!!!! {Deep Breath}

It could be worse though — I had my old Macintosh crash once, just days before I needed to have my phone book files to the printer (I use to publish a small town phone book before Twinkle Toes was born and I sold the business) and lost EVERYTHING. The computer guy was able to “miraculously” (his words, and I agree!) recover just the files I needed and then it died completely… And yet, did I learn my lesson on backing things up??

I do apologize to all of you, and as soon as I have email access again I’ll let you know. In the meantime, if you need to talk to me, my phone still works! 😉

    Obviously this is not a good month for you at all. Get that Holy water out and sprinkle anything that moves or doesn't move including the computer! I sure can relate to your situation. BLessings!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
