OT..........I really need strength


Recommended Posts

Guys, you know ya are the strength that helps me get thru the days sometimes. Well this is off topic but I need peace, prayers, energy.........all sent my way. I hope my symptoms stay intact over this next week. I found my exmothernlaw of 17 years dead in her house yesterday...........along with that, my neice that is 7, probably on has a few weeks to live if she survives that long (leukemia).........the family is so at odds with each other that no one will do anything and I use to be the strength in that family and I see them trying to pull me back into it. I have to be there because of my two sons........please send me peace.

Thank you guy

Thank you all for all the encouraging words you had to say and all the strenght you sent my way. Apparently I receieved it..........I have went nonstop for almost 12 hours and I haven't had any symptoms. I was able to assist my ex sisinlaw with all the preparations for her mom, call as many people as I could possibly remember, shopped with my boys for appropriate clothes, and took my boys to see there dad and I was actually able to comfort him in a way............My neice is in disney world this week thru the wish foundation..........it is her dad's mom that passed...........they are suppose to becoming home thursday for the funeral...........it just seems to much for one family to go thru but I know there is a plan for everything. Just thanks guys for letting me vent here and you know what I have to mention this my husband has been so understanding and has even offered his assistant to my exinlaws for anything he could do for them. I am greatful for this site.

Thank you

My thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your "families"!! What a double whammie!!! I pray for peace for everyone. It seems like we've all just had our share of rotten luck lately. I pray it ends soon. May God strengthen you during this time and keep you out of a potshole!!

Take care my sweet friend! I'm so sorry for you loss. And I pray your niece will go into remission, if possible!!

Thank you guys for all the support.........we were able to get thru the funeral and everyone stills seems to be intact...........my niece is pitiful..........they have started given her morphine now for all the pain she is having.........she no longer can walk. It is just so very sad but somehow we will find the strength to go to the next day. Thanks once again to all of you.

I'm glad you're hanging in, but so sorry that so many sad things are happening....

I'm so sorry about your niece's declining health. May I ask how old she is? I pray that the morphine keeps her comfortable. Can someone stay with her and read or just do things with her she "enjoys"? Even if it it just watching a favorite movie or brushing her hair or doing her nails? She will enjoy that. Many of my friends have transplant children. We have seen a lot of death lately. Marissa may someday have to go down that road. We have been "getting prepared" for years. These children are so strong and teach us so much. They are amazing!! May your niece be strong and fight a valient fight. Her little body and of course God will know when too much is too much. Just enjoy your precious time with her.

Hello God,

I called tonight

To talk a little while

I need a friend who'll listen

To my anxiety and trial.

You see, I can't quite make it

Through a day just on my own...

I need your love to guide me,

So I'll never feel alone.

I want to ask you please to keep

My family safe and sound.

Come and fill their lives with confidence

For whatever fate they're bound.

Give me faith, dear God, to face

Each hour throughout the day,

And not to worry over things

I can't change in any way.

I thank you God for being home

And listening to my call,

For giving me such good advice

When I stumble and fall.

Your number, God, is the only one

That answers every time.

I never get a busy signal,

Never had to pay a dime.

So thank you, God, for listening

To my troubles and my sorrow.

Good night, God, I love You too,

And I'll call again tomorrow!

I also wanted to share:

A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a

glass of water and asked, "how heavy is this glass of water?" Answers called

out ranged from 20g to 500g. The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight

doesn't matter. It depends on how long you try to hold it." "If I hold it

for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an

ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an

ambulance. "In each case, it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it,

the heavier it becomes." He continued, "And that's the way it is with

stress management. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later,

as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on." "As

with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before

holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden."

"So, before you return home tonight, put the burden down, leave it

outside your door. Don't carry it into the home. You can pick it up

tomorrow. Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment

if you can." "Relax; pick them up later after you've rested. Life is

short. Enjoy it!" And then he shared some ways of dealing with the burdens

of life:

Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.

Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

Eat a live toad in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you for

the rest of the day.

If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably

worth it.

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning

to others.

Never buy a car you can't push.

Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't

have a leg to stand on.

Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

The second mouse gets the cheese.

When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to

one person.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some

are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors but they all

have to live in the same box.

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

Happiness comes through doors you didn't even know you left open.

Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you

today..........I did.

Please take care of yourself!! And give your niece a hug from me! Tell her that I love her and that God loves her and that everything WILL be ok.
