A little prayer

This holiday is sooo over. What a damn shame. I don't want to go back to school.
I am screaming and kicking and crying waaaa waaaaaaaa
Now I know why them kiddos cry on their first day to school.
You’re leaving all that is warm and familiar and unregimented to tutors, timed classes, assignments, friends and tormentors alike.
Sigh.

Welcome to being an adult. And I’m not even working yet. I really need to make a move on that asap. This all consuming laziness is not me!!

So how has the past 10 days into the new year been?
Did you make resolutions? Are you keeping them so far?

I didn’t make any so nothing to keep J.

My birthday is tomorrow.

And I’m too skint to have a party or even go on a solo spending spree. (Another heartfelt sigh).
Am I expecting surprises..nope. Plenty of facebook messages and calls from home that I’m sure of.
Any other thing is up in the air!

A friend was angry with me cause he got to know about my upcoming birthday through a facebook alert yesterday. And the question was ‘Why didn’t you tell me?’ and my answer was ‘Why should I?’ Paradoxically, I love and yet ‘don’t love’ being made a fuss of on my birthday.

If you get to know (even if its at the 11th hour literally speaking) OR remember and want to make a fuss especially surprise blow your mind moves, I would cherish it.
The key word though is surprise. Cos if you tell me before hand that you want to make a fuss, I would prolly become a shrinking violet and dissuade you.
Yeah I am self effacing and boring like that.

I am just thankful. Thankful to be where I am now.
Thankful to be in good health – mental, physical, spiritual, emotional.
I am also thankful that I have a new year to be a better person, daughter, sister, friend, student, blogger, worker and citizen of this big, big world.

What do I want from you, Blogfamily? – A little prayer for me For focus. For happiness in my career. For a healthy bank balance. For a shining beacon of light at the end of this lonely love tunnel. Amen.

  1. I pray for a renewed focus for you, and for the wisdom and grace to maintain that focus in your life (that it should be permanent and not temporary).

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! :)

  2. Happy Birthday,spicy one! I hope you do have a fabulous day! Long list of prayer points, I'd say, but then it's your birthday and excesses are allowed. Do write a piece to tell if the prayers worked -say by next Jan 11th :;

  4. I will pray for you to have focus, Ginger, my darling niece. Focus is hard to achieve, but when I pray, amazing things happen. I suppose I ought to do it more often, actually, but it's such a bother.

    And happy birthday. It must be nice to be so young and spry, if unfocused. But soon enough, you'll be young, spry and focused. Such is the power of my connection to God.
