Thanks everyone

Thanks everyone for the prayers you did for me. They worked. But I think I am a little too well. I am happy about winter and the snow...I usually despise it.

I think it's time for a novena...

Novena to St. Dymphna
For the mentally afflicted.

O God, we humbly beseech You through Your servant, St. Dymphna, who sealed with her blood the love she bore You, to grant relief to those who suffer from mental afflictions and nervous disorders, especially....

St. Dymphna, helper of the mentally afflicted, pray for us.

Glory be to the Father....

I now have a really bad tremor in my hand. It bothers me sometimes but other times it's not too bad. On Sunday at mass I stuck my tongue out instead of my hand because I was worried about dropping the host.

I'm really glad with my parish priests. They both came to see me and helped me alot. I give thanks for them. They made me feel safe and loved.

RCIA is going really well. Dh is converting and I'm his sponsor. I am learning some stuff and it is making me look into things that I never thought of before.

I'm glad to see you're doing better, and a very nice novena you posted.

You know, keeping the right attitude about things can be very difficult when nothing is going wrong, but especially difficult when people and adverse conditions want to drag you down to your lowest ebb. I know this from personal experience. Still, we have to try; and trying can be as difficult and exhausting as intense hand-to hand combat. This war, however, takes place in the mind and it can batter you emotionally and psychologically, but it can be won.
