Musings of the Chronologically Challenged™ Fourth Generation

There's no way to catch up missed time, so I'll not even try. I've had a very busy week, but not at the computer. Road trip to doctor; more birthday parties; overnight guests; more than usual influx of visitors; various appointments, etc., etc. Like John Lennon said, life was happening. A "busy week" translates into exhaustion and more than the usual daily allowance of pain and suffering! (Also, sharpens drama queen skills!)
The carpal tunnel is greatly improved and it'll be best if I don't press my luck and type too much, but I wanted to share this with you. By the end of the tiring week, I was at a low ebb and close to a funk. Today, still needing a pick-me-up, lo and behold my dear BlogSon came through with a stimulating telephone call that drove away the blues. He's such a sweetheart! Thanks for the therapy, B.S. After our telephone visit, an email came in from another friend and it was perfect for the moment. Here it is:
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!
