50 Shades of Pray: Oklahoma

Today the awesome Mark Koopmans is hosting the 50 Shades of Pray bloghop! 


Today we are to share in about 100 words, a prayer, a memory, a hope, and even a regret about the past and/or a wish for the future.

My Prayer: 
I pray that everyone is safe and finds comfort. It is a huge prayer, but this has always been a part of my prayers, even when I was young. 

A Memory:
This year has been filled with many, but perhaps the most moving was the times with my best friend and her mommy, Rosemary who passed away from her 5 year battle with ovarian cancer in November. 

A Hope:
I hope for more understanding in the world. 

A regret about the past:
I try not to see anything as a regret, and instead try to understand that everything happens for a reason. 

A wish for the future: 
My wish is that everyone will view others with more love ad kindness. 


Thanks for hosting a great bloghop, Mark!

  15. A very selfless prayer Ashley, which is the best kind. I want to wish you well on your pending release. I am part of the 50SOP, but did little visiting during the holiday week to other contributor's blogs.
