Thursday = Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop
Participate, read, comment!
This week I’m choosing prompt 4, which asks me to write a letter. That’s it! No more direction or suggestions. The possibilities are endless. As usual, when faced with limitless choices, I’m flummoxed. (Isn’t that a great word?) But then Mr. Jenners said “write a letter to God.” So I thought, “OK, why not?”
Hi. It’s been a long time since I’ve written to You, huh? When I was young and impressionable and thought You might be calling me to be a nun, I used to write to You all the time. Do You remember? I was very concerned that I might be missing the “calling” that the nuns at school were always talking about. But after a lot of correspondence with You, I decided that perhaps You didn’t need me in this position after all. I hope I was right because it is kind of too late to change now! HAHA!
So anyway, I’m married now and have a child. But I guess You knew that already! Isn’t that a lot of pressure — knowing everything? You know, I try not to bother You too much. I know You have a lot going on — with so many people trying to get Your attention all the time. I really just try to limit myself to requests to keep my family safe when we are flying on airplanes. Thanks for doing such a great job with that, by the way. And I do remember my manners and thank You when You’ve done something really great for me — like giving me a healthy child.
I have tons of questions for You. But I figure we can catch up when I move on to the next world. I sure hope we’ll be hanging out there. It would totally suck if we weren’t! I think I’ve been a pretty good person. I know I don’t always do the right thing and there are times when I could be nicer, but overall I’m a pretty good person. I hope I make you proud. So I’ll wait to ask You about all my big questions when we have all of eternity to talk. And am I correct in assuming I’ll be able to eat anything I want and never gain weight and read all the books I want? And perhaps I can finally have that long hair I’ve always wanted? That would be so cool. See how low maintenance, I am? I’m really just a simple girl with simple needs.
Well, I won’t keep You anymore. I’m sure You have lots going on. I know I’m just one puny little person in a huge universe, but I really do feel like you care about me. That’s nice. It makes me feel good inside. So keep up the good work, and I can’t wait to see what You have planned for all us puny little humans when our time here is done. I’m sure it is fantastic!
See you — but not too soon! Of course, in Your time, it will probably be in the blink of an eye, but I’d like another 50 years or so here if possible.
