Computer crashed....

Well...one of my New Year's resolutions was to down size, simplify, and organize...But, I wasn't really planning on doing it this way... My computer decided it would help me out with all those emails I had intended to file properly into their organized folders....because well, they are now GONE, no need to organize because there is "nuttin" there anymore. Pictures....GONE. Documents....GONE. Bookmarked blogs I love to follow....GONE.

Well, that is one way to save time on organization I suppose, big sigh. Now if only I could make all the other stuff that needs to be downsized, organized, and purged in my house that simple!!
Actually simple it is not. Thank goodness my husband has the pictures I lost on his computer but it will take me time to get everything transfered which makes for the next few posts I wanted to write for Reid, in honor of his recent birthday, a little trickier. So, those will take a little longer to find their way to the blog. 

However...I have been wanting to post about a picture that came delivered anonymously via UPS a week after Reid was born, and I have that picture saved to my "list of posts"...so that will be next. The picture and the story behind it... kind of amazing actually and I am excited to share about it. It is one of those stories that cannot be explained away as a "coincidence". You'll see...

MAN sorry to hear about your computer! I'm so glad your pics aren't gone forever though! I still get sick whenever I think about all the pics we lost. Have fun reorganizing!

Cheri, this gives a totally new meaning to "spring cleaning" doesn't it? Especially when it is not spring yet!

I can't wait for your next post about the picture. But just to let you know, years ago I heard someone pronounce one of those gems that say with you through life - and I am not a "religious" person, but would describe myself more as an agnostic, so all the more important I still remember it regularly: There are no "Coincidents" but "God-incidents"...

Sounds like my New Year, only I only lost my emails and email addresses.

It's amazing how fast those emails will pile back up!

Looking forward to seeing more posts!

Just stumbled upon your blog. My little Down's guy, Ricky, and his twin sister Greta have the same birthdate as Reid! Your boys are so handsome! Stop by my blog and register for a blog give-away!

Hi-I found your blog through Zoeys...was good to read your story..so familiar as I am sure it is to so many out there! Reid is adorable as is Luke. We have Preslie, 4 months old and Down Syndrome as well. It's been quite the ride but we wouldn't change it. It is good to find yet another and read such a hopeful, inspiring blog!
