Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt

Second close-up of pictureI am about to leave for a long and no doubt fatiguing test. I didn’t expect to have to fit this into my week, but, well, as you know, with chronic illness “thing happen.” I’ll take all the necessary paperwork and cards, a cap for my head when I have to remove my wig, socks (feet get mighty cold), and other necessary things.

And, of course, I’ll take along prayer that travels.

I won’t have the opportunity to read during the test, so I won’t take my prayer books. No opportunity, either, to carry a rosary. But prayer will be in my heart and, perhaps even more important, I know that prayer will be surrounding me, prayer from people I don’t know, prayer from people I do know.

Prayer that travels – what a wonderful gift! And what a wonderful comfort for those times when we might feel otherwise detached from home, familiar friends, or even our favorite wig! 🙂

Peace,

Maureen
