Hello all. I was really starting to miss Ivillage, but for a long time my access was limited on my home computer. The problems appear fixed now, and I am having fun saying hello to all.
I have some struggles this Christmas. First off, I had to quit my most lucrative part time job because the stress was causing my bipolar disorder to act up. Now I am wondering if a full time job is really for me. I can only try, but for now it is a moot point because schools are not hiring teachers right now.
My husband will soon celebrate a year of sobriety. He is often unhappy. I think faith could be the answer for him as it was for me, so I am praying he finds it. I am glad that his AA sponsor is a Catholic priest, though. One-stop spiritual shopping for him.
I pray often. Today, I spent a marathon session praying the rosary, reading the Bible, watching Mass on TV, and also a GK Chesterton play on EWTN (anyone else see the latter?) I reminded myself today that God alone is enough. I always want to remember that, and to love others, because I want Heaven, some day if not now. I pray for the grace to get there.
