St. Therese's Prayer

Another lovely thing from email:

May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.... May you be content knowing you are a child of God.... Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise God and love. It is there for each and every one of us.

Tuesday Update

Food: Blessings be to my husband, for cooking up a dish of prosciutto and bacon-stuffed tortellini with a cream, garlic, and onion sauce. To. Die. For! *slurp*

I also decided that sauerkraut is a pretty decent snack food. It has no fat or cholesterol. The protein and fiber contents are a bit low for my liking, though, and the sad part is that it has 430g of salt per serving. *sigh* You can't win for losing. Still, I'm sure it's better for me than potato chips.

Weather: The tropical wave was pretty wimpy. We hardly got any rain at all out of it. On the other hand, no flooding meant that I was able to get home from work, so yea!

Health: My doctor wants me to schedule my next mammogram. Now that I'm over forty, I have to have them annually. It appears to be a weird quirk of our medical system that insurance will only pay for one well-woman mammogram a year--and they mean a year to the day; you can't just schedule it May 14 one year and May 8 the next. No, it has to be May 14 and no earlier, the next year. Bizarre.

Actually, I was surprised that they are still recommending annual mammograms for women over forty; I had heard there was some study out that suggested mammograms shouldn't be done so often; that doing them that frequently might increase one's risk of breast cancer instead of reducing it. I guess the verdict is still out, on that.

TV: I'll probably watch Dog and King of Cars tonight. I'm not at all interested in Driving Force.

Archaeology: Awesome! An ancient Irish book of psalms was found in a bog the other day. It dates to AD 800-1000.
