QUOTE (Elspeth @ May 17 2004, 08:19 AM)
Hey gaberlunzie my friend, I am so glad you had a great few days. That light that shines in the darkness is so bright and warming isn't it? Praise God for that blessing.

Roisin, you will aready be gone to your first day by now, but I am praying you feel better and have a great first day.

Hey wizardman, glad your wife is better, but saddened (and angry) she had to suffer so much before getting the help she needed. Hopefully, you are past the rough spot. Losing her grandmother I am sure has had many effects upon her. That emptiness can last so long.

Hope everyone else is going well. The sun is shining here. A beautiful spring day. Hard not to smile on a day like today.

Thank you, Rose, thank you Elspeth;
yes, this light is a very warm and bright one. It always brings a smile to my face. I treasure every second of this weekend; even her snoring at night LOL!
We had a whole weekend of these questions like "Do you remember?"..."Where are the old photos" and while looking at them giggles and laughter "Ooooh nooooo". We also went to see her Dad who doesn't live too far away from my town. I haven't seen him for more than 10 years. I spent many, many weekends at their house when my friend and me had been around 20 years old. Her Dad always called me his third daughter.
It was such a pleasure to meet him; I didn't count how many times we hugged during these few hours and how happy we all were.

I learnt a lot this weekend. And I'm so grateful. smile.gif

How are you today, Elspeth? You sound not too bad at all!

No, I am not too bad at all. I have been happier than I have been in 20 years. I finally have let go of thinking my husband is my responsibility. He's not. He's in God's hands. And my husband needs to make the choice whether to embrace that or not. But it is no longer my responsibility. I am free. smile.gif

Hi, everyone!

It's been a while since I've checked in. I can see a lot has happened.

Roisin, congrats on the new job! I hope it works out for you. I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I know it's hard enough to start a new job, let alone give it your all when you don't feel good. I pray you feel better soon.

Rose, you poor girl. I'm sorry your mother isn't doing well. Your sister is a saint! I pray that your mother improves that that your sister can remain strong.

Allen, I'm glad your wife is doing better. I am sorry to hear about your mother-in-law passing. I pray that God gives your family comfort and peace.

Elspeth, you sound so happy! I so glad for you. I know it took some strength to break the enabling chain. You go girl! I will pray for your husband, that he finally finds his way to getting help.

Gabby, I am so happy that you got to spend some quality time with Marina. Life has been so dark for you and I'm glad that you were able to let some light in, even if was only for a few days. I pray that the light will linger and that God will help you draw strength from it.

mercyforme, as I said in the General Discussion thread, I am so glad that you're getting help. I pray that God will guide you on your way to finding hapiness. You deserve it.

I care a great deal about all of you. I will, as always, pray for all my CR friends. May God's blessings and peace be upon you all.

Can't complain. Kids are all healthy. My wife could use some prayers, though. We just found out that 3 of the discs in her back are bad. She's been having back pain for several years and no one could tell her why. Finally our doctor took X rays and found the bulging discs. There isn't much they can do for her for now. She got a cortisone shot in her back this morning, so that should help with the pain.

Normal is a relative term. For some reason it is not a term my relatives use to describe me.

Prayers you want, prayers you got. I have lower back pain myself from some minor nerve damage. Not bad and not constant, but annoying nonetheless. Maybe medical science will find a cure, and we'll all celebrate with a cold, frosty rootbeer.

I am truly blessed everytime I read the forum! We have some really prayerful people in here and of all faiths. It is truly remarkable! Thank you for all your prayers and you are always in mine!

I am so happy to see you happy and free, Elspeth!

Todd, sorry to hear about your wife. I hope there is something they can do for her. I have the same issues with my back and so far there is not much they have done for me. I go to back massage often and that, believe it not, helps relieve a lot of pain, especially the sciatica I have with it. Maybe that would help your wife too. Just a thought.

I'm dropping a line or two to say thanks for all your prayers. My first day was hard because I was so sick, but as far as the job goes it was a good day. I'm still sick, but feeling a tad better. I think my fever broke. So again, thanks for your prayers and words of encouragment. I felt them!

Elspeth, wonderful news!!! Walking in freedom is an awesome experience. It's wonderful when we grasp and learn those life lessons God is/or has been trying to teach us. You are truly an inspiration to us all.

Todd, sorry to hear about your wife's situation. I will be praying for her.

Rose, Thanks for all your encouraging words and for just being the sweet, kind person that you are. You are kinda like our official "Kirk and Chapel" cheerleader. Keep shaking those pom-poms girl!!!

Gabby, your news about spending time with an old friend is wonderful. I too have old friends that I don't get to spend to much time with. When I read your post you made me want to call them all up and set up a time to get together.

mercyforme, Hi how are you. Glad to have you aboard the forum.

Take care everyone and have a wonderful day!!!

Peace,
