For Each And Every One

I had a nice long chat with my Mom last night, catching up on her life and updating her on mine. We always cover a range of topics. At one point I mused that I was feeling homesick, and that handling a book about psychology careers the other day gave me a pang for what I’ve left behind. I’m not about to undergo the same training all over again — the cost in money and time are prohibitive — and I’m too new here to have discovered what alternatives exist. I’m leaning toward a life coach practice, but even so, it will take time to build. I am starting over.

This morning I awoke and found an email from her, and I’m sharing because it’s a beautiful prayer. I was raised Catholic; though I no longer practice, I find much wisdom in Christianity, just as I do in other religions.

St. Theresa’s Prayer:

Today may there be peace within.
May you trust in the highest power, knowing that you
are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use the spiritual gifts that you possess,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God…
Let His presence settle into your bones.
Allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love.
It is there for each and every one of you.
