God's Grace...

funny thing, I went to a funny movie**, and laughed a lot and my abdomen hurt, I could feel the area's where the staples were stretching, so I took a pain pill and still it hurt really badly, not just ouch, but hurt the rest of the day and into the night. At early evening I was exhausted so I went to my bedroom.
I was reading my Faustina book and I was reading a part where she suffered much pain, but God gave her the graces to deal with it. So I prayed that God would give me too the grace to deal with it and then I laid down
I was laying there too hurt to move and I wanted my heating pad that was under my bedside table
but I was just too sore to move.
I thought about pushing my intercom button and calling one of my kids upstairs to get it ... but I thought that was lazy and my kids were enjoying a movie
just then my bedroom door opened up
and Shiela said "what did you need?"
and I said what are you talking about?
she said, "you beeped the intercom "
and I said, no I didn't
She gave me my heating pad and I had much relief. Elizabeth came up too and said, she heard me calling her name over and over, and I did not do that either.

:)
Nice grace, eh?
** Please note, the movie had some silly parts, but the laughing increased greatly when 3 elderly ladies snuck into the moive half way through... and sat behind us, they were LOUD and annoying, but funny too.
When they walked in the youngest (age 70ish) said,
"WE'LL HELP YOU UP THE STAIRS, YOU CAN DO IT."
"IT'S SO DARK, I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING"
"LET'S SIT IN THE FRONT ROW"
"NO THAT IS TOO CLOSE, COME ON!!"
"IS THAT JOHN TRAVOLTA ON THAT SCREEN"
"NO THAT ISN'T JOHN TRAVOLTA"
"SHE LOOKS SO COMFORTABLE IN THAT BED"
"I CAN'T SEE A THING IT'S SO DARK IN HERE"
... and on and on it went. Along with lots of candy wrapper paper, and purse jiggling noises.
The movie was Bewitched ... it was a nice movie for the older kids.
