Now, let me say that "prayer" means something different to everyone.
Some people clasp their hands and speak to a higher being.
Some people reflect silently.
Some people turn to nature.
I am not here to judge or preach or say that any one way is better than another.
I am simply suggesting that today is a great day
to reflect on life's blessings and curses
and, in the best way you know how, say a prayer.
I'm going to ask you to add something today, though.
I am going to ask you to include my friend G in your payers.
She just had her second baby in November, a healthy baby boy.
She is the gorgeous and proud mother of 2 healthy baby boys
and the happy wife of my dear friend J.
Today she shared with the world that she has
a benign meningioma (a tumor in the meninges of the brain) that must be operated on.
She is truly one of the worlds shining stars,
and today she needs blessings.
Her husband needs blessings to stay strong.
Her boys need blessings to keep their dear mommy safe.
She needs blessings to overcome this obstacle with grace and good health.
So, however you pray, please pray for G today.
