Daydreams and Worries

~ I find myself at times just sitting and thinking.... or perhaps, it's really called 'daydreaming'.  So many thoughts just rush through my mind.  Sometimes, I'm critical of myself, sometimes, I'm thinking of projects around home, sometimes I'm thinking... I should be working instead of enjoying the Summer off...

~ Do you do that too?  Just sit and think and daydream.....?

~ I think this would be the perfect place to lay and daydream... don't you?

It just looks so comfy and dreamy ♥

~ Sometimes I like to sit here and daydream.....

Thinking, pondering, swinging.... on a breezy Summer evening ♥

~ Sometimes, in between all those daydreams, I start to worry... I worry about my Dad's health most of all... my kids and grandkids, not currently having a job!


~ But then.... I tell myself to take each day... one day at a time, sometimes, one hour at a time and many times... 1 minute at a time...and just breathe!


~ But then, just as I am feeling lost, worried and down.... first thing I do is remember "The Knots Prayer". 

The Knots Prayer

Dear God,

Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.

Remove the have nots,
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots,
may nots, and
might nots that find
a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots,
would nots and
should nots that obstruct my life.

And most of all, dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind
my heart and my life all of the am nots
that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.



~ After reading and thinking of this prayer, I again...remember that God is in control of everything and that I need not worry.


~ I know without a doubt in my life, I am doing the best I can for everyone that crosses my path.  I am caring, thoughtful and genuine. I am ME. 

~ Don't let anyone tell you that you have to be a certain way,
be unique, be what YOU feel.

 Today you are you,
that is truer than true...
there is no one alive who is YOUER than YOU
 {Dr. Suess}.
