I cannot believe another week has passed and it is Friday again!! This has been a wild week at the Thorns home! Toward the end of last week I had to go take care of a few things at the college for The Oldest child. I ended up driving her to work (in NJ!!) so I could take her car to the bus, lock the keys in her car, and take the bus back home. I'll just bet you can see where this is going! As you know, if you are a regular reader, I always seem to get lost when I visit The Oldest. This time I got so lost in Fort Lee, NJ (not even sure how I ended up there, THAT is how lost I was) that by the time I found the park and ride, I had missed the bus. Of course, I did not know that at the time, and I had already locked my keys in the car. I had to sit for 4 hours at the bus stop waiting for The Oldest to finish her shift at work. Of course her very sweet boyfriend told me that I should have called him and he would have retrieved me. I had not wanted to inconvenience him, but next time I will because my poor achy bones were sad in the rainy weather. So this week I am thankful that I am not sitting at a bus station, and that I was safe while there.
I am praying for safe journey today, as I drive with The Oldest back to NJ, and attempt one more time to get to the bus, or perhaps the train this time, without incident.
I am praying for The Oldest, her Futbolista, and his family.
I am praying for Sweet Mary, who started a blog about her journey with the BIG C...Catholic, Cancer, Cured. Please visit her blog and pray for her. Tell her Lily sent you :)
I am praying hubbins gets a full time job very, very soon.
I am praying to get through my classes very, very soon so I can get myself a good paying job.
I am praying for my children to stay on the straight and narrow.
I am praying for a good school year, last year was so difficult with hubbins losing his job. I had to work so many hours outside the house, I'm praying this year will be a better one for my children.
I am praying for a more Christ-centered existence in our home. Unemployment has brought me more spiritual challenges than I ever imagined I would face, and that MUST change now.
And lastly, I am praying for all of you who read my blog. Feel free to share your prayer intentions either in the comment section, or in an email to me. I would be honored to pray for your specific intentions. If not, then you can be assured I pray for the intentions kept within your heart.
