“Lord, I hope this day is good
I’m feeling empty and misunderstood.
I should be thankful, Lord, I know I should.
But, Lord, I hope this day is good.
I don’t need fortune and I don’t need fame.
Send down the thunder, Lord.
Send down the rain.
But when you’re planning just how it will be,
Plan a good day for me.”
Some of us have not yet been all that impressed with 2009 (I’ve attended one funeral of a friend, lost another relationship to debilitating illness, and WTF is coming on with a vengeance; I’m aware of other calamities and disappointments among blogfriends). However, we remain hopeful. Maybe it’s just a slow-starter, late-bloomer kind of year.
