 Lord I thank  you for another day,
Within this life I have left  here I pray
Please give me the strength
When I feel too tired and drained
To  have what it takes to survive
Lord give me the will and drive.

Lord thank you for another day,
In which I can make amends
For all the silly slights or petty words
I might have at some time in my life
Said to my dear family members
Or my loving and thoughtful friends.

Lord thank you for more time today
To be able to spend more time to pray
Keep me safe and away from harm
Help me to get to the best place I can
When I  feel that I have reached my limit
So I can feel safe in you loving arms again.

Dear Lord as I open my eyes this day,
I ask for one more wish as I pray
Dear Lord you know that I am ill
I would just like to ask one thing still
Please look after my dear husband Rich
This is dear Lord is my last loving wish.

      With a BA in math, physics minor, and asusming you are choosing to be a programmer for hire, your best pay will come from doing commercial and scientific instrumentation where your core skills will be important. In general within the area where math and physics is worth having, this means embedded programming and C and assembly coding skills and some familiarity with linker control files, map files, and how compilers compile and link.You must have some OTHER reason than money. If you imagine doing freelance because it is better pay than being an employee, then you need a slap in the face. It is better pay. Sometimes. But the point here is that there will be times when it is WORSE, much WORSE. And at those times, if money is your only reason, you will quit self employment and become an employee (or your spouse will demand you do because of the child, etc.) And when you quit, it is over. You are done. The self employment is over. What almost always happens is that people do it for the wrong reasons (money) and don't have any other reason for being there. You need to search yourself and see if you have reasons that will carry you through the tough times and keep you going, keep you trying, when times are hard and everyone around you tells you that you need to go get a job and pay your bills. If you don't have other reasons, in the long run it will all end. So you need to find out if you have what it takes to stay the course. If not, go the stable route. You will do yourself and a lot of other people a great favor. But if you have other reasons, important ones, that will take you through the most difficult of times, then go for it.You need to read contracts for intent and to be able to modify them to suit YOUR needs, not theirs. You will need to have the guts to say so, too, and explain why. Clients write contracts for their interests and none of yours and if you cannot manage to negotiate a balance on your own behalf you probably should not be in business. You need to be able to modify a non-disclosure document or modify a work for hire contract.The goal on the legal/contract side should be about finding a mutually rewarding position. It's no good if the situation hurts you. It's no good if the situation hurts them. You need to look at your clients and do what is good for them while also doing what is good for you and if you can't find such common ground, you need to be able to tell them that you cannot work for them and say no. An example of this is about fixed priced contracts. A fixed price limits their risks. But it does so by asking you to shoulder those risks. But since they stand to benefit from the work product, if it does well, and you do not there is no good reason why you should accept risk without compensation for offering them that insurance policy. They stand to reap the benefits on the upside, which means they take the risks on the downside. You just get paid (time and materials.) But if they want you to carry their risk, then you need to be clear about that fact and make sure they are paying you something extra for taking on those risks.You also need to be able to write well and proficiently, think on your feet, document thoroughly, account for your time and materials expended accurately and well, get started quickly (fast mind, listen well, contribute ideas, etc), isolate risks and pull them to the front of projects to resolve earlier rather than later, develop milestones and inform clients of them and hit them often, handle billing and collection actions when necessary, anticipate problems before they become serious and/or help others meet your needs without feeling guilty that they screwed up so they don't want to talk to you anymore, etc. You need to exude confidence (and be successful) so that clients aren't living in continual bouts of fear, etc.In short, confident and secure, nice personality, good business acumen, a clear writer, personally want to help others succeed, available when needed, as well as all the usual technical skills and experience that also need to be there and to be continually developed over time. It helps to be an avid reader. My personal library is well over 3000 books today, most of which I've read with understanding, and that is only what is left after selling or giving away far more than that over the years. The books fill all of the walls of a very large room, spanning some 20 tall shelves I built myself each holding about 200 books apiece. Pure and applied math as well as physics covers many of these shelves. Computer programming still more. Signal processing, electronics design, computer architecture and cpu design still more, again. If you love physics and math as much as I do and enjoy applying it (less of the pure and more of the applied type of person) in practice and making successes in difficult territories, then you will do fine.

      Hi Lauren,

      I apologise for not answering sooner but I have been battling very bad health problems. As well as this, I have been busy writing children's books. Three in fact, and they have all been published. I have a website if you would like to know it

      I had my first book signing last Saturday and signed and sold one dozen of my books. I had the most amazing time and spoke to many children.

      How are you? How is your grandson? Are there anymore grandchildren Lauren? I have looked at your website from time to time and I see you have quite a few up there now.

      I reached my first 100 on hubpage score. I couldn't believe it. I thought I was seeing things.

      I am so pleased you love this poem. I have written 125 poems now and have written eight books, and have had three only published at this stage.

      My publisher says that she wants to publish all of them. Isn't that great? Please stay in touch. You were one of the first people I met on hubpages. I think about you often and would love to hear from you okay. Take care and write soon. Would love to hear from you. Love Pam

      I too, am glad also that our paths have crossed as I believe that things happen for a reason. I pray every day so that he will help me to get through all these things I have to face. I am facing neck surgery in a couple of weeks and I am pretty scared as it does contain a lot of risk involved. I have a great surgeon who I can trust with my life. He is a good friend also.

      I feel that I can rely on him to do a great job and I am trying to think positive that everything will turn out in the end in a good way Thank you for concern. We should keep in touch. I am sorry it took me so long to write back but I have not been well. Please forgive me.

      Love Pam.

      Hi Healing Touch,

      Thank you and I am glad that you were ready for a tear jerker and I was able to meet those needs. You sing? That's wonderful. I think there is nothing better than to be able to do this because it can give you so much of a lift when you need it. Pam.

      Man, I love that poem. I needed a good tear jerker. What a fab attitude you have with all the trials. I sing too, so I will sing for you since your voice has been affected. I used to sing lots.
