Yesterday morning and through out the whole day I was feeling out of whack. My body ached and I was running a fever. Still I pushed on at work as I wanted to finish some important stuff.

When I got home my wife was sweet enough to dish out food for me. I popped two annarex tablets and lay on the couch to relax for a bit. Was thinking to myself that if things didn’t improve I would have to see a doctor. My daughter then comes up to me and asks if we were going to have family prayers? She likes praying the rosary and loves to say at the end of each decade “St Joseph” and when the rest of us responds “pray for us” she will quickly lead with the ave Maria. Anyhow while I was not quite up to it, I told her to ask the rest of the family if they wanted to pray. She ran off enthusiastically and she managed to get them all to agree.

My wife suggested instead that we pray the divine mercy. While my daughter was not to happy about it in the beginning since she was not familiar with the prayer, she decided to join us in the middle. I decided that we should end with the divine praises and so led in it. Praise be to God that His mercy was indeed upon me as I started to feel better before going to bed. By morning today I was good to go to work!

Blessed indeed is a praying family.
