What do you do with an "OOPS?"

What do you do with an "OOPS" when it involves another person? We just received an email from someone our son mentioned in his journal which is on our website as "John's Legacy." We thought we were being so careful to change every name he mentioned - or at least most of the names and there was one name we forgot to change that just so happened to be critical that we do so. Yikes! How did we let that one slip by? I guess that just highlights the importance of a really good editor!

All we can do now is send a sincere apology and change it as quickly as possible! And hope we don't make the same or a similar mistake again.

Maybe you have an "OOPS" you'd like to share. If so, please feel free!


  1. Something that happened way long ago, when I was in high school working part time. I told my employer I didn't like a certain customer, not realizing she was there at the time.

    Big Oops, but I didn't get fired.

  2. Yes, oops that I've seen you comment on my blog before but never thanked you!

    And thank you for following my blog tour also.

  3. Oh I've made plenty of OOPS!'s before - lol. But just don't let me ever hear an "oops!" from my surgeon! ;)

  4. I'm sure my "Ooops" moment in blogging is coming someday! I just hope it won't be too bad....

  5. We all make mistakes, however, God is much bigger than our mistakes and if we simply give them to him, His grace covers all things.

    Blessings, in Christ to all.
