Prayer of Saint Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury,pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen

Sleepy sleep

Yesterday and today have been spent in bed. Uggg. I walked to the mother house this morning feeling feverish and dizzy and the volunteer in charge said i probably shouldn't go to work. I walked back to my room and slept all day. this is my first attempt to be awake and outside(!) for more than 10 minutes. So far, so good. I'll probably go back and sleep more and maybe out to dinner with some friends from the dorm. Hopefully I can go back to work tomorrow, it all depends on how hot my forehead is.

One more week! Hope you all are doing well, love you lots ~ Corina

Hi Corina- Hope you get lots of rest and are back on your feet soon. Isn't being sick a humbling thing? I love your last blog and congratulations on being so convicted and passionate about life. Your talk about the children makes me all the more eager about starting work- only one more week. The hint of fall is in the air- a reminder that change is all around us and brings beautiful things. Take care and drink lots of liquids- bottled of course! Love, Mom
