Sunday a day to reflect.

I am forty now. I have come a long way from where I started from. I don’t judge myself. I try not to judge others. I pray. I seek God more. Sometimes in the mornings I pray to God when I first wake up. God’s presence in my life made all the difference. I appreciate the prayers that were prayed on my behalf. I pray for myself too. I know God is in this battle for my sanity with me. I am thankful that God cared enough about me. God chose to heal me. I appreciate God. I appreciate people in my life that offer help to me. I know there are going to be times when my mom needs me and my stepfather may need me too. My parents are getting older. I try to help my mom a lot more. My mom is in her early 60s and my stepfather is in his late 60s. My parents and grandparents made sacrifices for me to benefit from. I appreciate my mother and my stepfather. I feel like I should help out more. I do laundry and from time to time I cook. I try to help my mom with bringing the groceries inside the house into the kitchen. My mom is my primary caregiver but she gets burnt out sometimes and we stay inside and I do laundry. I love my mom enough to do laundry without a need to ask for anything. I help my parents out no questions asked. Once in a while I cook for us.
