I don’t really know really what to say, I just got a message from Dh that he is sitting at the courthouse. Crown Counsel is seeking jail time right now. We are in a bit of a legal battle these days over all the assault charges. It’s kinda messy.
I started this post a few hours ago, now it’s after lunch and I am absolutely exhausted. I didn’t sleep well last night, I had dreams, nightmares actually and woke up a bunch of times near 3 am. I prayed when I woke up but still I didn’t feel rested when I got out of bed.
Yesterday was kind of a good day, I didn’t do much at all in the morning I walked to Mass. That was kinda neat because I prayed the Rosary along the way. There is just something about praying the rosary while walking. It truly allows me to meditate without being distracted by intrusive thoughts.
I literally lounged around all day, I did do something good/useful – I helped out this lady that had also just moved here. We met the other day in the lobby of the church, while I was waiting for Ds to finish his reconciliation. She the woman had to move quickly due to her husband’s job so their family basically just closed up their house in northern BC and came here. I lent her my computer and set her up with a Gmail so she could browse places on Craigslist. I am happy to say they found something by evening too which was fantastic.
Besides that and the lounging, I went for a run. I figured out the Kms today and guess it was around 8.5k. It was sooo beautiful, I ran the coast and then up this long winding hill and then down a stretch that went for miles and miles. It was so serene. There was a powerful sent of flowers in the air and the quiet was precious. When I reached the summit, I was astonished by what I saw. A bay and a long coastline, way down below me and ocean as far as the eye could see. Breathtaking and glorious. I felt so thankful to be there. I am thankful to be here period. I turned back and ran making my way home. The run felt purely rejuvenating. I have been sick again, so it helped at least for a short time.
Last night I was quite sick again, nauseous, second day of it this time. So far. After my shower I went to sleep fairly early. Around ten pm I guess.
Today I woke up like usual, tired but at my usual time. I did something strange. When I got out of bed, I got out on the opposite side I normally do. So being the closet superstitious gal that I am I thought to my self, “oh no, wrong side of the bed” I know it’s weird and wrong, God is the only one who influences my life, not some silly superstition. I shouldn’t limit God in this way.
Since it was so nice out again, I decided to walk to Mass again. I prayed the same way as yesterday but today I arrived to the church at the 4th decade, so I went inside and said it before the Blessed Sacrament. It was a good way to finish. Very powerful. I had this awareness all day that I would need strong prayers. It was strange. Then I went to my pew and waited for Mass to begin.
