Tonight

As I lay here in bed, staring blankly at a book cover and with my earphones on, memories of the past weeks crossed my mind. A few happy ones, mostly worrisome. And once again I am reminded of the big questions in life: What are the things that matter most to me? What are my priorities? My own little troubles and challenges seem so insignificant when I think of my cousin who’s fighting for her dear life.

So I guess this is me feeling a tad bit sad. Painful menstrual cramps ain’t helping either. Wish my fairy godfather would relieve my pains.

Lord, I lift it all up to you. I pray for everyone’s safety and good health. Safe travels for my mentor, too.

And for tonight, I just want to rest. And let things be.
