Tuesday All Day Today!

My brother’s grandchildren playing in the back yard.  They saw me taking pictures and turned around and waved at me.  So sweet.  Among them is a beautiful little red-headed 5 year old named Mary, who was born on my birthday.  I introduced myself to her at first, and she looked at me sort of warily.  By the time I left, she would gleefully shout “Hi Mary!!!” every time she saw me.  I would shout back “Hi Mary!!!”

I am working at home today, and I better get to it.  I have to proofread a huge document that will be made public later this month.  I am good at proofreading, and I hope it will be relatively easy for me today.

Last night I got some of my very own jail-mail.  My daughter usually gets a mailbox full every single day.  But this one was addressed to me.  There was a jailhouse drawing of a rosary, an AA logo, and praying hands.  I wonder if God doesn’t love those drawings the best.  So earnest, so heartfelt, such detail in pencil.  With that was a short note (my daughter likes to make up names for herself… her sobriety name is “Sunny” and when I call her “Megan” people look at me like I am nuts):

Listen, I know Sunny has been through a lot in her life, she made it because of an unconditionally loving MOM and not much more.  Thanks, _______

The depression has come back with a vengeance.  I surrendered again to God this morning.  Whatever he wants…. and I mean whatEVER.  I will plug through the day and trust that I am exactly where he wants me today.

Blessed are those who, with a noble and generous heart, take the word of God to themselves and yield a harvest through their perseverance.  — Luke 8:15

    Love the name Sunny! Sweet five-year-old Mary. And I’m hoping the depression lifts a little today for you, Mary Christine.

    Tried to post from my phone to my blog but it won’t let me. Came through the surgery ok. Sobbed and sobbed in recovery room as I grasped that my breast was gone.

    I am sorry that your depression has come back so strongly. I will be offering up my pain for you today. God bless you.

    • Thank God! You have been in my thoughts and prayers, and will continue to be.

      That pain is a mighty prayer. Thank you. Perhaps I could offer my psychic pain for you today, I will do that.
