God. I feel like my entire life I have had a relationship with God without believing in God.  But I know there is something much bigger than me that surrounds me.

To me it makes sense to refer to “it” as my Higher Power.

Today I had this urgent need to speak to my Higher Power. And I can’t remember ever feeling this way. So I am getting ready for bed and plan to have a good chat with my Higher Power.

And as my dearest Trisha explained to me, “…ask [your Higher Power] to remind you of the strength your mom invoked and use that to strengthen yourself.”

So that’s what I am going to do.

Are you there God? It’s me, Kirsten.
