So this is Christmas

I can’t believe we’re at mid-November and people are talking about Christmas shopping. The hell? The coldest it’s been here is 65 degrees; every day hovers between 80 and 90.

It’s very strange to not have seasons. I don’t mind it — it’s just that I depended on the weather to help me to differentiate the days.

“Now am I blessed?
Or am I cursed?
Cause the way we are
Aint the way we were

Back… When we were beautiful
Before the world got small
Before we knew it all
Back… When we were innocent
I wonder where it went
Let’s go back and find it.”

— Bon Jovi, “When We Were Beautiful”

I’ve got so much on my mind, I’m ready to blow. I often wish I had a kid instead of a mother to take care of. Then I come to my senses. 🙂 But really, either way I feel like I’m going to be responsible for someone else for the next 18 years!

Please, God, give me the strength to let go of my anger, my anxiety, my helplessness. I’m going to get involved with the church starting today, and I signed Mom up for it too. Help money to not be our enemy and help me to prioritize the reason why I’m here, which is to serve You.

I know You have a miracle waiting for me. Many miracles. Let my heart be open and my mind be alert when they present themselves.
