For all those that believe in Prayer....

Say a prayer for my friend and co-worker Lisa. She either ran into a truck and fell or the truck hit her (not sure yet) but she received a severe head injury. They removed part of her brain and now she's 50/50.

She has always been very nice and held down her position when times are the worst at work. She is my age from 30-35. Its a sad story to be on your death bed cause you were trying to stay in shape by jogging.

Anyway, just trying to get the most positive thoughts and prayers sent her way right now.

Oh no, such tragedy. I hope Lisa makes it and gets better soon.

You know I jog every day too, but I do it in my neighbourhood where there are few cars. I always see people jogging on main roads and I think they should stop, it's really really dangerous.

She was in a parking lot of a government complex, I'm sure after hours. It was an employee that the accident involved. Its a very sad, weird tragedy. Although, unfortunately many people fall and die from those injuries.

Hopefully, Lisa won't be one of those numbers.

Goodness so much tradgedy in the world (is that too cliche? ) Supposedly 1 in 2 American Men and 1 in 3 American women will get cancer in their lifetime . Isn't that scary? (though I think that sounds a bit inflated. I read it in an insurance magazine supporting some kind of special insurance, so I bet they were sensationalizing a bit, but still...)

That's very sad. I remember Stephen King got hit while jogging too.

Lord, You invite all who are burdened to come to You. Allow your healing hand to heal me. Touch my soul with Your compassion for others. Touch my heart with Your courage and infinite love for all. Touch my mind with Your wisdom, that my mouth may always proclaim Your praise. Teach me to reach out to You in my need, and help me to lead others to You by my example. Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring me health in body and spirit that I may serve You with all my strength. Touch gently this life which You have created, now and forever. Amen.

This reminds me of Boston Public when the guy was nearly dead from a stab wound, and the two teachers, the old one and the Assistant principal were assisting in praying in Jewish Prair

I'll say a prayer for Lisa, Rocketta. That is extremely saddening.

Please let us know how she is doing.

That is a travesty...I hope she will pull through Rocketta. "May the Lord take her under the wings of 1000 angels for protection".

****** Dasha Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena , then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******
