...A quick look inside the thoughts and prayers of a very busy woman...

Lord, You know how much trouble it causes me when my car is behaving like this! Please fix it.

And speaking of fixing: the garbage disposal has been making this funny sound, and the Hendersons are coming over tomorrow night. I've been working so hard to get the house cleaned up for them, and I would be so embarrassed if I were to have a smelly mess on my hands in front of them!

Oh, and please make the kids behave tomorrow, too! I don't want the Hendersons to think I've got brats running around the neighborhood!

Kent is up for that promotion today, and is probably with his boss right about now. Please bless that meeting--You know our finances, and how much we need the raise!

Help me to make that green light...oh, shoot.

Help me to get that good parking place...Hey, that's not fair, I was there first!

Lord, give that rude woman a flat tire on the way home--that'll teach her a lesson about first come, first served!

Lord, please let me get Sandy today for my hair appointment. That Marsha only wants to talk about herself, and her life is always such a mess! I just can't take that kind of stress, not now!

Later...

Lord, help me to get a good night's sleep tonight. I'm going to need so much energy in my busy life tomorrow! Thank you for making me such a giver, a truly selfless person.

Ah! How many of these lines can I relate to? Hmmm. All of them? LOL.
Thanks for making me stop and think. Your piece says so much in so few words.
Well done!
Blessings, Lynda

How we love to feel superior to this character. After all, it couldn't be us! Sharp writing.
