minus 13. . . . still dark

ok. . . so it's going to be a tough one. Feels like I'm in labour - although I've never been in labour.

It feels horrible.

Reminds me of something my father used to say:
That's the only good thing about hitting yourself in the head with a hammer.
and to the inevitable question: "What is?" he'd say:
It feels so good when you stop.
What a strange thing to say, don't you think? Wonder where he got it?

I do know the goodness of 'pain stopped', though. sigh

When I found this picture I decided to check what the book of James might have for me. There is no James 13, so I looked up James 1:3 and found (coming from verse 12 before):
Consider it pure joy whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
Great. Perseverence.

Right. That's what I need.

More of that.

Oh help. . . .

many thanks. . . . I need 'em!

wierd day. . . . will this never be done?! sigh. At least the heat has broken. I step outside to breathe like a thirsty man in the desert. It's heavenly. In the middle of hell. . . .
