Sunday Prayer: Happy Thoughts

Dear Lord,

I’ll start with something positive this week.

Thank you for naps. The fact that I get to collect my thoughts in the middle of the day is awesome, but do you really have to take them away soon?

Speaking of naps, Lord, why am I tempted with my bed for me to nap? When I give in to the urge, I only get to rest 10 minutes at a time. Why 10 minutes? Well someone apparently can’t part from me longer than ten minutes. Even now as I write this, my daughter is yelling my name in out apartment–it’s been 6 minutes so far.

Most people cannot nap under those conditions (me being one of them).

Okay Lord, something positive again–I’m trying.

Ooh I know! Thank you for allowing me to finish the laundry for the week. The hamper is no longer empty, but it was empty for a day, that’s a change.

Usually Lord, I’m behind and washing multiple loads until I get it done. Of course it would be quicker if we had a dryer, but that is something that we don’t need at this time.

Thank you for opening my eyes, and having me see the things that I do have, versus the things that I want. When it all comes down to it, if I can live without it, I don’t need it.

Last, but not least, thank you for the weekends. It may really last one day (since everyone knows the weekend is over Saturday evenings), but weekends are days where we get to spend time in each other’s company (while each parent pulls the other down from climbing the walls).

I won’t say how many times both me and my husband wanted to go to sleep, but we know that it’s only two days, and this shall pass.

I think I’m done.


Oh, I almost forgot, thanks for the rain (again) the last rain shower left my car looking dirty, but the recent shower you left has it looking really clean. To me that’s great news, since it’s a black car.

Okay. I’m officially done now.
