Today I woke up still stuffed up and unable to breath. This was day three. I’m use to being able to jump out of bed every single morning full of energy ready to take on he day! The past three days I have not been able to do the things I like to do to the degree of perfection that I like to perform them in.
Then it hit me…like a ton of bricks it slapped me off of my ridiculous self centered chair! I have an AMAZING LIFE! A REALLY AMAZING LIFE! The oppurtunities I’ve been given most will never see and or experience in this lifetime!
The family Ive been gifted with is THE BEST family I could have EVER asked for! I have an ADORABLE nephew! I have a huge platform where I can stretch my creative arms and express myself! Most will never achieve even a fraction of this! Heck…I’m even considered by many to be beautiful! I’m intelligent and I speak from a conscious place within my heart that many never get to speak from…..I’ve written and published two books, I have a huge following, a family that loves me and I KNOW AND LOVE GOD DEARLY!
So this is what I decided to do! I decided to write a letter to God…an apology of sorts! For being so self centered and for not appreciating the things he has given me! Before you begin to laugh at my “Dear God letter” I encourage you to do the same! It has me walking around smiling from ear to ear!
Dear God…I want to thank you for this very breath I am taking as I write this letter to you! I want to praise you for my family! Thank you for my beautiful mother that knows when to push and when to pull back! Thank you for my two stunning older sisters and the connection we have always had and always will have! Thank you for Cassandra being a complete comic who has always made me laugh! Thank you for Stacey who taught me everything I needed to know about being “a pretty girl”! From make-up to hair…watching her taught me how to always pull it together! Thank you for my Grandmother La Golda who grew her own food and sang songs out of the bible to me al throughout my childhood and teenage years! She will always be the glue that holds us together! And thank you for my father who went to be with you when I was ten years old and he just thirty six. The lesson of losing him so un expectedly taught me that in life, we must love everyone fully with an open heart and treat them as if the day is there last.
Thank you for allowing me to realize the day my nephew Alex was born that life can get even better with the birth of a child! Thank you for my furry little husband Louis who is always eagerly awaiting my return home!
Thank you for my eating disorder over a decade ago that got me onto this juicing, raw vegan detox path where I have made a very deep mark for others to follow! I LOVE YOU GOD! Most of all I want to thank you for dying on the cross so that I could be forgiven for each and every one of my sins! I promise to appreciate all of the gifts you have given to me and to treat every day as if its my last!
I Love you, Andrea
I pray tonight that all of you will write your Dear God letter tonight and may you be blessed as I have been beyond measure!
Let us enjoy the journey!
