Struggling Still…

It has been a tough day….emotionally. But I still held on physically and others didn’t know it. Ian did come home today and was here for probably an hour before he was picked up by the police. I am SO grateful that I wasn’t here to see him handcuffed. I’m not sure my heart could take that.

I’m grateful for a friend that suggested something for me to look in to that may help Ian. Gives me a little hope for the day.

Tonight I am meeting a friend for dinner and we are going to a “caregivers” meeting at a local church tonight. We are both looking forward to it. Her husband has MS and I have always admired her courage and strength. Praying that we are both blessed by the meeting. It also will get my mind off of things.

I so appreciate the kind words today on my comments, through email and facebook. I am blessed!

This has really helped me….and I love the second portion of it…..

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can; 
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

    hi angie, good for you! it’s great that you are actively seeking support, reaching out to others who can share understanding and compassion, and that you are so receptive to to the love and support that is so vital in such a difficult time. being receptive is HUGE – not everyone is able to take in the gifts and consolations people are willing to give, in the spirit they are offered. i wish you comfort and peace and continue to keep my most positive thoughts for you, mike and ian close to my heart. karen
