Moving Day

Glorious St. Anne, I beseech thee to grant me guidance in finding all of those things that I have lost.
I also ask that you provide me with the foresight to put things in places that I will remember.  Amen.


You guys will appreciate this . . .

Moving day started today! Rumor has it a big moving van showed up at my house and some men started boxing up my house in Round Rock, courtesy of my husband's new company. I only know this second hand because I'm in Lampasas in the middle of a nursing home survey. I'm singing praises to the Gods in the Heavens, Mother Earth, the cosmos and the universe, the Ying and the Yang . . . for anything and anyone who had a hand in arranging for some strong men to do all the labor, and let me just stress from afar.

My big assignment for our move was to find my Saint Anne figurine to watch over my move – to be our protector of lost objects – to make sure every thing was accounted for and found it's proper place in the new house. Only, I have the box she came in and the prayer card she came with, but . . .

I've lost my Patron of Lost Objects!

Oh, this is not good.

What is good . . . My Caitlin landed safely in Costa Rica and is having amazing, over-the-top experiences. She's blogging about her new life there, and you can follow her adventures at her new blog, Quarter Life Caitlin. I know I'm completely biased, but I think she's an amazing writer writing about amazing things. You might enjoy a peak.

    I am moving too after 34 years in this house!  Unfortunately, I am doing all the packing myself – by myself!  Good Luck to you and stay in touch.  I miss you!  Renee
    My new email will be so please stay in touch!

  3. LOL! I had always heard that Saint Anthony was the saint of lost objects. Maybe you can pray to him to find your lost Saint Anne! All kidding aside, I found the prayer to St Anthony and it is quite lovely…
    Prayer to St. Anthony for lost items
    St. Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find (name the lost item) which has been lost.
    At least restore to me peace and tranquillity of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favor, I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God.
    Good luck with the move, I have done it 8 times and never by movers.

    • Well, that definitely explains a lot! No wonder I lost my Saint Anne, I've been praying to the wrong Saint. Or maybe two Saints are better than one. Oh, I'm so confused. But your prayer is lovely and so much more tranquil than trying to figure out which Saint is which and where my figurine is anyway. I'll just prayer for peace and tranquility – the rest is gravy.

    although not Catholic, I have always been a firm believer in St Anthony. He has saved me many times in finding lost objects. so now I need to get St Anne too. In 2 days at our school, he helped find 2 sets of keys, then a diamond watch. good luck w your move. I just moved my mother's things (she passed away) into my home and I am overrun with things.

    • Hi Barbara.  Didn't think/know I could send you a reply to your message.  Hope you get it.
      Would you mind please sharing w/ me how St. Anthony helped you find some lost items.  I've lost 2 very important items and I need ALL the help I can.
      Thanks so much!

  5. I had to giggle about you losing your St. Anne.  No offence meant, but just something I would do!  But now I see that someone mentioned that St. Anthony is the one you might need.  Verrrrrry confusing, eh?
    You are soooo lucky that you don't have to pack your household.  That would be a job and a half.  If we ever move, that's what we're going to have to do ,cuz hubby will be retired then and no company will be moving us.  Waaaaa.  (that's me crying!)  lol
    Prayers to you that your move goes off without a hitch!

  6. LOL!!  LOL!!!   LOL!!!  I was going to suggest St. Christopher to search for your St. Anne (but that would not have worked because I had St. Christopher confused with St. Anthony )….  LOL!   Best of luck with the move!!
