Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for unanswered prayers.

As probably all who are reading this know, there was a time in my life when I stayed up at night praying, begging and pleading for God to answer just one prayer:

Him would fall madly in love with me and we would live happily ever after. 
("Him" is the code name for the boy I've loved since third grade). 

Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday. 
Someday.
Someday God would intervene and answer my prayer. 

Well, someday is either really far off or let's face it - that shit ain't gonna happen. 

But I am happy now. Thrilled, in fact. Because I could not be more grateful that God had other plans.......



...Just because He doesn't answer, doesn't mean He don't care.
Some of God's greatest gifts
are unanswered prayers.

    HAHA... oh the tears that were shed when I found out Ame made up a screename on AIM and told him about my crush! I remember the freak out like it was yesterday. I apologize to you all for my somewhat crazy quirks. :-)
