keeping myself stable

I have been trying to deal with things the best I can. I am trying not to waste my already short life with worry. I have been trying to just raise my kids and keep things afloat. It has been a challenge. But I am doing it.
I have a prayer request. My online friend,Will, is in the hospital with two failed kidney's. He isnt doing very well as of now. His wife, Patty, is a sweet girl. She is not taking it very well. On top of dealing with this, she has young children to take care of. Please take time and say a small prayer. She really needs all the prayer she can get,

As far as the election. I, myself, am republican. But I am mature enough to try to have faith in our government. Maybe Obama will do ok. Maybe he will fix things at least somewhat. He has alot on his plate. I hope he can handle it. I will pray for him that he will make the right decisions for our country. God Bless him.

My case worker(Loretta) at Career Link has found a place where I can take my GED early. I really need to pass this test so that I can take my next step leading my to my new and more stable life. That is all I want for My children and I. Fist things first, Passing that test. Loretta thinks I will ace it. She has more confidence in me than I do.

I am very sorry that I have not been able to comment on everyone's journals. I hope to be able to have five seconds to sit down later with a cup of hot tea and read and comment in journals. I miss everyone alot!! Feel free to e-mail me anytime.

Keeping your friend in my prayers on the smoke. I continue to keep you and your family there as well. Your doing what you need to do hon, one foot in front of the other. As for Obama I'm delighted he's our new president. I think at the very least he gives us hope. Hope is more than we had before. (Hugs)Indigo

Just take it one day at a time or even one hour at a time. I wasn't an Obama fan either but will pray for the safety of him & his family as well as for wisdom as he prepares to take over the helm of our great country. Prayers going up for your friend Will and family. Also for your family and you as you prepare to get your GED. Hugs to you from Linda in Washington state

Of course will pray for your friend. I agree about the prez..I was not feeling well represented by Obama, nor did I really agree with all McCain the end I will support the president even if he was not my first choice. I feel we should support him or we will look weak to other countries you know.
