God grant me!

I remember reciting this prayer to myself when I was in eight grade and feeling as though I was a very deep person...so proud of how mature I was at 14 years of age. I wonder & feel somewhat nostalgic for the innocent, naive girl I once was. Sometimes I long for that innocent girl and wish I was there to guide her....and yet I need to guide that almost forty year old woman in the fourteen year old body that now embodies who I am
....body images? how we are prisoners of our past.
I am thankful this moment.
I am choosing not to fail.
I am choosing to be a better person. For me!
I am choosing to be a better Mom. Wife. Daughter. Sister. Friend. Aunt. Godmother. Cousin. Sister-in-law. Daughter-in-law. Proud&loving pet owner. Neighbor. Customer. Curteous driver. Friendly stranger. Awesome & phenomenal woman!!!!!
And I mean this with no strings attached.
Not as a burden but with love. Not as a job needed to be completed, but a loving task I lovingly dare to take on!
We carry so much on our shoulders...yet when we love & are at peace, we should feel in psynch(sp?) with ourselves.
At this moment I feel at peace.
I hope this moment lasts for as long as its destined for me... and may God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Happy Mother's Day!
