It's Been a Good Day So Far

New Year's Day Prayer for one and all

Dear Lord,

So far this year I've done well.

I haven't gossiped, I haven't lost my temper, I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or overindulgent. I'm very thankful for that. But in a few minutes, Lord, I'm going to get out of bed, and from then on I'm probably going to need a lot more help.

Amen

I read the Shack. Make sure you give a review I'm interested in what other people think of it.

I've been so grouchy today. Not sure what my problem is but not a good way to start off the new year.

I love that you will be hosting Not So Fat Fridays in the New Year. I will definitely be back to check that out!

Not So Fat Fridays! I love it--since I'm going to be not so fat EVERYDAY of this year. And when I get all cute and thin like you, we are going to hang out and drink Blue Moon and eat fabulous food and I will have earned it with all the hard work I've done. Amen.

And I love this little prayer--it is so ME!
