I don’t go to church, but I pray. I don’t feel you have to belong to an organized religion to talk to God (or what ever you call her). I believe there is a God, something/one beyond us who watches over us and guides us on the path we need to take in this life time. So I pray. I don’t do it in a church, or on my knees next to my bed, nor do I hold rosary beads like my grandma did and chant the Hail Mary or the other prayers. I talk to God in the car, in the shower, on my walk to work, on my runs, and very often when my sister is driving.
I pray for good weather, safe travels, and happy days for myself, family and friends
I pray for the strength and patience to get through challenging days
I pray my sister never has kidney stones ever again
I pray for my mom, in hopes the hole left from my grandma will heal from the love of all of us still here
I pray for my dad, that he takes advantage of the second chance he was given by surviving colon cancer
I pray for the strength and sanity of both my stepdad and my stepmom – for I know what it is like to live with my parents
I pray for my aunt, that she finds success and stability in her growing business
I pray for my nieces and nephew, that they grow up to be happy and healthy people
I pray for LH, that she finds her happily ever after in what ever form it may take
I pray for Jobin, that opportunity will knock and recognize her amazing talents
I pray for Cuff Turtle, that she stays a healthy, happy turtle
I pray for the expectant mothers, that their babies grow strong and arrive healthy with 10 fingers and toes
This week, I am praying for Cousin Zibby. I pray her mom’s suffering ends, finding peace. I pray Zibby finds her own peace and understanding during this difficult time.
I pray we all learn a little something from everything that happens to us during our time here.
