Prayer Request

I pray for my friend Trish and her husband who both do not have jobs. It puts stress on them and their marriage. She has been a good friend and deserves so much.

I also pray for my great-aunt Mary edythe who was in an accident a couple of months ago and is still recovering. We thought we almost lost her. Now she is able to recognize people, breathe on her own, and talk. She is trying her best to walk, even though she has a hip out of place and needs to rest. It has truly been a miracle. I pray for her continued recovery.

I also pray for my husband bob as he starts his job at a new place tomorrow. He has waited so long for this transfer and the time has finally come. May he be treated well by his co-workers and enjoy his job more than at the other place. It had really begun to wear him down and people took advantage of his kindness and dedication.

Finally, I want to thank you for my parents. I know you thought I would never say that. We used to fight all the time and I felt misunderstood by them for all of my teen years/early 20s. We hurt each other in so many ways and all I wanted to do was get away. But I am married now and I learned that no matter where you go, they'll always be your parents and you can't ignore the problems. I don't know what I would do without them. If I call, they're here. Without question, without asking for anything in return. They just come and they always give so unselfishly. They don't care about the cost of gas or what time of day it is. They will be here if I need them. It is still hard for me to tell my mom that I love her because I had the most problems with her when I was growing up, and still run into a few snags here and there even now, but I do care and love her. I'm just afraid to say it I guess. It doesn't come as easy as it does when I say it to others. If I'm still holding onto any grudges I want to let go of them because anger is what holds me back from a lot sometimes. But in any case I am just thankful that they see the real me and no longer wish for me to be someone I'm not. They used to want me to conform and dress plain and not have weird hairstyles. They said they were ashamed of me. I think they knew they had almost lost me and it required them to bend a little. Now they accept me as an individual, even if they don't always agree. And isn't that what love is all about? Still loving someone even though you are not the same...loving them so much that no matter what they do, you will always want them around.

Thank you and goodnight. Sweet dreams.

Thank you so much for saying that...although I feel that I am the fortunate one to have them because I have not always treated them right or let them know how much I appreciated them when they needed to hear it. I did some stupid things when I was younger, lies were told, I was scared to let them get to know me. Even after all that, they are still here for me and I'm just very happy that we get along now.
