I got it. Really. I do.

OMG! It just dawned on me! I know why my life has been so damned unsettled for the past couple of years.

As I was standing there, ironing my pants for today, I was chewin' over why it seems my life is such a damned wild ride. Looking back, I was tryin' to figure out where I went so very wrong.

That's when it hit me. Down in Orlando, when Mama Vi came to visit, we had us a nice long, Mother/Daughter talk out by the pool one night. I was sayin' how I didn't like how I had become such a control freak since my divorce. I missed that "free spirit" I had.

Mama Vi said she would pray that I would learn to "Let Go, Let God". Well, we all know the best way to learn a lesson. Live it. Over and over again, until it is a part of who we are.

Mama Vi! Please stop!!!! I get it! Really. I'll be good. I promise. No more analyzing things into dust. No more second guessing folks. Hell, I'll even stop with the "This is what I'm gonna need for you to do....". Ok - maybe not that. THAT'S goin' a bit far.

But seriously. I get it. I'll relax. I'll let go. But please, please stop praying that I learn this lesson. I'll be good. I promise.

**Note to self: this is as dangerous as prayin' for patience.

I was going to mention that "never pray for patience" thing. I guess I just did.
