Prayer for Jerry

God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my husband Jerry,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.

In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.


I pray and hope everyone experiences a day without fatigue and pain.

The Start of a New Year 2013

Hello Everyone,

I am starting off the new year without my soul mate, Jerry. I miss him so much and I hope that I can move forward without always feeling so sad. The fatigue and pain I have felt on a daily basis is nothing when compared to the sadness I feel because of the loss of my husband. It helps me to write to him everyday. Jerry completed me and made me want to be a better person. I will never forget Jerry's courage, compassion for others, wisdom, and infinite love. He made a difference in my life. I thank him for the beautiful, blessed journey in life we shared.

On another note, I would like to remind everyone to update their medication list and try to keep a daily journal. The journal does not have to be fancy. Write down your symptoms, thoughts and find a way to measure your pain. After a few weeks or months you can review and re-examine your symptoms, thoughts and pain level. I have been able to monitor activities, medications and found ways to improve my health and quality of life.

The most critical part of learning to live well with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue is making lifestyle adjustments. We cannot change the past or our genetic makeup. However, there may be aspects of our lives that we can change or ‘adjust’ in order to improve our health and quality of life.

Also try to simplify and balance your life.

Today’s message: Never take life for granted, cherish the people you love and take control of your health.

Meanwhile I hope and pray everyone has a wonderful new year filled with love, good health and happiness.

With Warm Regards,
