A Quick Update

by | Feb 19, 2009 | Prayer Request, WoW | 5 comments

I can’t believe it is already Thursday!! It has been a busy week, and I just haven’t had the time (or motivation) for blogging. Did you know that if you get Strep Throat bad enough, it can turn into a Kidney infection?? I didn’t, but that’s what happened to hubby this past week. He is starting to feel better, now that he is on antibiotics.

I just added another prayer request to the side bar (would you consider doing the same??). Please add Elizabeth to your prayers, and Sarah’s sweet little Sophia, and please continue to pray for the Hadley’s. THANK YOU!!

I did check in over at Regina’s yesterday, and was able to report a 1 lb loss this past week! Yay!! Basically it was the pound I gained last week, but not bad considering all the treats we’ve had around here lately! Even though I haven’t had that much time for exercising (I only got to it twice this past week), I have been very good about watching my portion sizes.

I also wanted to let you all know that I had to turn on comment moderation after receiving over 50 spam comments over the last couple days. I guess I haven’t been the only one… Very frustrating!! I am still working on deleting them all.

Well, it’s time for me to get off the computer and get my children started with their schoolwork. Hopefully I be able to catch up with you all soon. I hope you are all having a great week!

    I hope your husband gets to feeling better soon. Yikes, that sounds like a doozy.
    I have heard about the Chinese spammer, and haven’t been hit. A couple of weeks ago I did notice that some Chinese guy added himself to those who follow my blog. I blocked him because it seemed sort of weird; I wonder if it’s the same guy??

    what is portion size?
    and what is schoolwork?
    would jillian approve of your exercise hiatus?

    Thanks Angela!

    From what I can tell, the spammer arrived here from another blog and it looks like he has been finding us all on the Catholic Mother’s Online Blogroll.

    Glad to hear your hubby is feeling better. I too had scads of awful spamming in the blog comment section of my own blog. I always had comment moderator abilities on because this happened two years ago to a few women I knew. Imagine having nothing better to do? Crazy. Hope your day is great!

    I just posted my plans for Lent and I linked to your calendar for last year. I hope that’s okay. 🙂

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.
