MY 'CHANGE OF LIFE' PRAYER

ONE DAY I MET A FRIEND WHEN I WAS OUT shopping at a local mall. We greeted each other and stopped to chat.

After the shop assistant left, my friend handed me her samples, saying with a pleased smile, "Here, you have them. I don't need these anymore."

I took them with mixed emotions. I had already begun experiencing the discomfort and disturbance of menopause. And it was proving difficult. Many women I knew had found this change stressful. I'd been hearing about their experiences, the old wives' tales, as well as the physical symptoms associated with this "change of life." Worse still, I knew that I had several more years of this trying and unpleasant time to go through.
