steveroni-a-roni


FRIDAY NIGHT.....
Double dipping today--Sorry 'bout that!

Hey blogger friends. When have I asked for help here? Maybe, but I do not recall.

Now...now, I NEED YOUR PRAYERS, peeps. Right now, steveroni is down...way down. This late Lent and Eastertime must be a bad time of year for me. (It is...)

Really don't need (don't want? -grin!) a bunch of advice, comments, etc. Just remember me when you lie down to sleep tonight. Ask God to smile His Friendly smile on this soul in Naples which hurts.

NOTE: This is not a 'poor me" thing here. This is a "What in the hell happened?" thing. No headache, etc. Just thoroughly wet eyeballs, that won't quit.

I am NOT normally a depressed-type guy...also I DO NOT handle it well. Came on suddenly, like lightning, and then thunder. The storm SHALL end--it must. I'll 'will' it to end. That's not working, though.

All I can write at this time is THANK YOU! This has GOT to be gone by morning.

In love and in need of service,
Sincerely.
Steve E.

I always say the serenity prayer when I'm down. And remember that this too shall pass. You have my thoughts.

God, I almost feel cheap, asking you guys who I do not even 'know', for help. But "help" you are, and thank you all for your kindnesses.

PG is here now, but she always wants to know exactly what's going on. I cannot tell her, because I do not know.

I'm feeling better just re-reading you comments. Now, I realize how the 'other shoe' must fit....

How about some bar humor?

A man walks into the front door of a bar. He is obviously drunk. he staggers up to the bar, seats himself on a stool, and with a belch, asks the bartender for a drink.

The bartender politely informs the man that it appears that he has already had plenty to drink--he could not be served additional liquor at this bar but could get a cab called for him.

The drunk is briefly surprised then softly scoffs, grumbles, climbs down off the bar stool, and staggers out the front door.

A few minutes later, the same drunk stumbles in the side door of the bar. He wobbles up to the bar and hollers for a drink. The bartender comes over, and still politely--but more firmly refuses service to the man due to his inebriation. Again, the bartender offers to call a cab for him.

The drunk looks at the bartender for a moment angrily, curses, and shows himself out the side door, all the while grumbling and shaking his head.

A few minutes later, the same drunk bursts in through the back door of the bar. He plops himself up on a bar stool, gathers his wits, and belligerently orders a drink.

The bartender comes over and emphatically reminds the man that he is clearly drunk, will be served no drinks, and either a cab or the police will be called immediately.

The surprised drunk looks at the bartender and in hopeless anguish, cries "Man! How many bars do you work at?"

Stevie, we are all in this together. When one hurts we all hurt. Blessings dear one!

Just Be Real said...

Amen Stevie! Appreciate you very much! I need to go to bed. Sleep is definitley welcome tonight. The Lord's Prayer is always a good prayer to pray! Thinking about you dear one. You are kind. Blessings. Until tomorrow.....

Mary Christine said...

Prayers your way.

I always have to remember that "feelings aren't facts" and whatever seems so horrible probably is out of proportion to reality.

Maybe that's just me.

Hope said...

Will pray for you. Will light a candle, too.

Doing a search on the internet and stumbled across your blog. Several days late for your bad day but wanted to share with you anyway.

32 years ago, the love of my life moved away with her family to a place I couldn't follow. We had both just graduated high school and had spent over two years together every day. Imagine the heartbreak I felt as she waved goodbye with tears in her eyes. We attempted the long distance route but it faded as well.

I sought relief in drugs and alcohol and spent half a lifetime not knowing how to break the chain. I tried the program several times with limited/finite success, however, I attempted it again in December 08 with a newly energized desire to stay alive. After only two months sobriety, I had an awakening that I consider totally spiritual. God gave my first love back to me. She searched and found me on the internet and sent a message. We've been communicating with each other daily for about six weeks. This may sound unremarkable but the fact is that she had a tumor removed from the base of her skull only hours before it killed her. She has spent the last thirteen years regaining her memory. Although she has short term loss, she remembered me from our teens and sought me out. I see now that God saved her life so that in turn, she could save mine. I say a prayer every morning giving thanks to God for working a miracle in my life.
