Well, we've made it to another Friday. This is a good thing. And, I am glad we have a long weekend coming up, I think he he. Ian has been sick all week, the doc said he's not sure, thinks it might be some sort of croup thing, just keep doing what we're doing it's clear up in time... Ok... My wife is getting over bronchitis, plus that magic visitor is here so, she's been having a time of it. So, I don't know if it would be better to be home or at work this weekend, he he. Selfish, I know but it is what it is. We're supposed to go see our nephew play ball this weekend. He plays for a Big 10 school, and this is his senior yr. The doc said it would be ok to take the boy, so we're gonna go do that. I dunno, the way things are going this week, I guess my enthusiasm is less than it probably ought to be, but that's just how I feel right now.

I woke up at 4:20 am this morning, just boom, awake.... thinking about money. I really try to not worry about it consciously, so it kinda pisses me off when my brain decides to hit me when I am sleeping. Needless to say I didn't sleep well after that... I guess my freedom from economic insecurity is not complete... I'll have to keep trying to remember that HP has a plan, to keep trying ot do the next right thing. However, today, right here, right now, Iam kinda not diggin' the plan thus far... I am sure my patience will be rewarded... or so I keep telling myself that. I hate to be stressing, as it shows a lack of faith... Ya can't help how ya feel, but it's comforting to know that this too shall pass, and that feelings aren't facts.

Prayer for the day...

God/HP, thank You for the blessings of sobriety, AA, family and good health. I pray that You may do what You do to keep me sober another day, that I may use this gift to help others in recovery, and in life. I find myself starting to fret a bit about some of the outcomes this week in my business. I know I am supposed to have faith that You will take care of me and my family. However, I am finding it easy to revert to thinking it's all up to me, that things aren't going my way, etc. HP, please help me to remember that You have a plan, Your plans are always good for me, whether they are congruent with what I think is what I need. I pray that I may stay the course, that I may grab hold of Your Grace just today and keep doing the next right thing, not worrying about the outcome. God, help keep me on the right path today, the one that leads me into the sunlight of Your Spirit.

peace be with y'all...

Yes Yes YES I too am happy it is Friday and that we have a 3 day weekend. I am all there with your wife, hehee, poor Mitch. He always tells me I am not bad. I do require him to stop me up on chocolate however. :)

Have a great time at the game and enjoy lots of laughs with your family. Happy Friday!

Nothing much better than Big 10 ball, Scott. Go Gophers -- oops -- maybe you are going to the, gasp, dare I say it??? Buckeyes? lol. Can't recall what state you are living in....anyway...
One thing I am learning for sure is that G-d DOES have a plan for sure, but I don't always like the timing of it ;)
I hear your practical concerns and wish things were easier for you right now. I am thinking about you....
Peace, Scott,
Scout

I know when I am sick nothing seems fun. Cool big ten and he must be a big boy.

Daily reprieve. I know the feeling of waking up with a thought. Mine usually is not over money but about things I am working on. Also you could be fighting off some sickness from the boy or the wife. I am such a babbler no?
