The Cord Prayer

The cord prayer. I got this idea from my friend Stacy. Her baby came home with lots of cords too. If you have more than one electronic cord behind your t.v., you understand how quickly it can turn into spaghetti....and if you know me, you know how much I hate my husband's THOUSANDS of electronic "spaghetti" in our livingroom...beneath the computer...spilling out of open boxes in the garage....

Her cord prayer was much more eloquent than mine,...and on a bad day (or week it seems,) I have to fight the urge to cuss during my prayer time. "God, please help me have some &%$#%# patience today with these (*&^%#*% cords, or I'm gonna !#@%#&# ^$@#! I say this already knowing the answer, but I hope God hears my heart when my prayers turn to gritting my teeth and spewing out garbage like this. It's frustrating. I have a kid with cords. They keep him alive, and I am thankful for them, but there are times when I fantasize about unplugging him and running as far away from his some place tropical. :)
