Do you see that big red swollen thing on my arm? (I know, it is not a good photo.) I had a tetanus shot on Tuesday and the injection site got inflamed yesterday. I felt so sick and achey all over my body yesterday I came home from work and slept all afternoon. Today I feel better, but still I have this red, inflamed, painful lump on my left arm.
I am glad it is Friday. Even though it has only been a four day work week (well, three and a half days for me) I am anxious for it to be over. I am supposed to see someone tonight to "talk". It makes me nervous. But I can always take God with me and no matter what happens I know I will be fine.
"Our basic troubles are the same as everyone else's, but when an honest effort is made "to practice these principles in all our affairs," well-grounded AAs seem to have the ability, by God's grace, to take these troubles in stride and turn them into demonstrations of faith."
