Dear Gd,I’m having a really hard time right now. I am grateful beyond words to have lived the amazing life you have afforded me yet another year. Some wonderful people invited me to share the holiday with them, but I prefer being alone and I don’t know why. So many wonderful things have happened this past year while others reminded me the clock is ticking. Time goes by the same speed, yet right now it feels like it is going faster.I know whatever is going on has been building for awhile and I have sought outside help which will start in 2 weeks. My prayer is that she is the right person to guide me out of whatever is going on. Today has been about shedding a lot of tears and sleeping more than I need. While I am glad I can find gratitude each day, the underlying sadness keeps growing and I don’t know why. I want this year to be different. I want to feel joy again. I want to feel there is still so much to look forward to. I want this year to be exactly what you want it to be for me Gd. Maybe I’m sad in part because I don’t feel like I did my best. It felt I time that I was just getting by and I want so much more. The more I am, the more I can give. Tomorrow I get to go to synagogue for a 90 minute inspirational service at Chabad of Alpharetta. I know my Rabbi will share exactly what I need to hear…he always does. I pray that soon my tears will be from the joy of being past whatever it is I am walking thru right now. ... See MoreSee Less
