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 you do, they will always want you around.

Thank you and goodnight. Sweet dreams.

Tell your mom u love her. It would beso unexpected and mean the world to her. I know as. This is coming from a mothers point of view and once being that child who wouldn't show affection towards her mother, and felt very misunderstood. God has blessed you with great parents the best way to show you appreciate them is to tell them. :) keep praying and having faith god has many blessings in store for you!

Thank you. I have come very close to saying it. I can write it, but its just so hard to say it out loud, especially when she asks for it directly. That makes it awkward. I want it to be natural, at the right moment for me, like u said unexpected for her. So we will see what happens.

Tell me you've made it with your Mom - told her you love her - what we speak out has such power and strength. It can heal or hurt. You get the choice. Take care

Yes I wrote her a note and also today after our visit I said it. It was hard. We have been thru a lot and day by day I try to make things better but with her sometimes its like taking one step forward and two steps back because no matter what me and my husband try to do for her she will call me up later and find fault with it, saying we didn't say or do something right, when we try so hard to do thoughtful things for her. I send her cards to thank her for all she does, give her gifts that I think she would like...she has always seemed to get offended if we don't give her something, and she smiles and says she likes it but then calls me later saying I wish you would have given me blahblahblah I wanted that..and then it makes me feel bad :-(
