May Journal Project - Day 10
A couple of days ago my friend (and sister-in-law from my first marriage), Nancy, sent me a message saying she'd heard a song that reminded her of me. Of course I immediately called her and we caught up on all the happenings in our lives.
Talking to her reminded me about how much fun movie nights were in our house. In 1997 I'd rented the movie "My Best Friend's Wedding" and it became an instant classic with my family. Of course I bought both the video and CD. Nancy visited us often and experienced many of our movie nights full of popcorn, singing and dancing. Such great memories!
Here's the best version of our favorite song from the film, "I Say A Little Prayer," performed by the cast - written by Burt Bacarach and Hal David (originially performed by Dionne Warwick).
In one of my old journals I found a page where I'd written about praying and hoping for a brighter future. It reminded me about the power of both sending out and receiving prayers. Like most people I pray for a variety of reasons: hope, health, love, forgiveness, power, strength and happiness to name a few. Most importantly I pray a great big "Thank You God" every day for all the blessings in my life.
And I might even "say a little prayer for you!"
