Day 277: Dear God..

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Dear God..
Please help me to be able to concentrate on more than one thing so I can focus on my weight loss and health at the same time as projects at home.
Please help me to start getting up at 5:20am again so I will have my blogging time instead of the 6:20am since the time change.
Please help me to be able to say no to the cravings to just eat for no reason except for addiction, like grabbing for a cigarette.
Please help me love with all of my heart.
Please help me to know what is important and except what is right.
Please help me to be kind and generous and sweet and loving and considerate and gentle to those around me.
Please help me to be the best that I can be.
Please help me to look in the mirror and see the beautiful girl you made and not be so critical and self doubting.
Please help me to love and appreciate and be accepting to what I have and what I have been given.
Please help me to see with eyes of gratitude and love and sweetness.
Please help me to feel good inside and out.
Please help me to engage in life fully and to know how to do so.
Please help me to have the willpower and courage and strength and momentum I need to keep moving forward and to never give up.. and to reach my goals in life wether in weight loss and health or any other everyday issue that may came up.
Please help me to be a light and inspiration to others so they may keep moving forward along side me and we may become an army of positive doers and thinkers to overcome the negative and the naysayers.
Please help me to continue learning and becoming the person I was always meant to be.
Please help to keep smiling no matter what is at hand. To hold my head high. To never let thoughts of what others may think or say stand in my way.
Please help me to make a difference in the lives around me in positive ways.
Please help me to help someone else have a smile today. Let it be a ripple that continues for miles and miles around. Let the smiles keep going until they have come full circle. Let everyone feel that happiness and joy that can lighten your soul.. even for just a moment.
Please help me to be the best mom I can be. To never let impatience get in the way of that.
Please help me not be quick to anger or quick to judge.
Please help me to be a good wife and a good homemaker.
Please help me to be good to myself while still being good to others around me.
Please help me to make right decisions.
Please help me everyday in every way and to always know the right thing to say.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you God for keeping me and my family safe and healthy and happy. I can never thank you enough for allowing me to be able to give my children the childhood every child deserves.
