Friday morning prayers

Ian seems to have caught whatever's been going round. He's got a bit of a fever, a cough so we're watching him closely and keeping him home from school. Bummer is, we have his H1N1 vaccinations scheduled for Tuesday afternoon and now he's sick. So, that could throw a bit of a wrench into the plan. I will have to call the health dept and see how long he has to be feeling better/fever free before we can get his vaccination. A couple of his friends had similar symptoms, they were down for about 3 days. So, we'll keep a close eye on him and see what happens.

I am pressing through this little patch of "dumpy crummies" I have been enjoying all week. I really don't have any problems, especially compared to some of my friends on here and some of the folks I know personally, who are going through some very trying times. So, my focus will continue to be prayers to my HP for them and prayers of gratitude for me.

Counting blessings...

That we're here to take care of Ian, and we know what we need to do, based on his symptoms, etc...

That I have a job to go to, and I actually love it...

That we're sober in AA and each have an active faith life at church...

That I have lots of friends online and in person...

That we're getting ready to spend time with our families at Thanksgiving and Christmas...

That we have a back up plan to assist with our ailing financials...

That I have an active life today, that doesn't resemble my former life of drinking and drugging...

Please God, be with my niece Natalie as she struggles ith this disease. Be with my friend Jaime as she copes with the loss of her boyfriend from Cancer. I pray for Your Blessings, Your Grace for these girls and for the two struggling young men who have been asked to call me for help getting sober. I pray that I am fit to help these guys and any others who cross my path and need help recovering. Please be with my friend Pam as she learns to live life without her mom close by. And most of all, thank You for always being there for me to call upon, to enjoy life with, to celebrate my blessings and gifts.
