I was raised in a catholic family, but do not practice that or any religion anymore. I don't understand why people "thank" god for saving them from an accident, illness,etc when so many others were NOT saved No one saved my baby from being stilborn or my mom when she died of cancer. When my dh was abusing me, there was no relief there either. I am having a really hard time with my dd, and prayers are not helping as well. I am just tired of people praying to a god who seems to pick and choose who has relief and who has to suffer. It never made any sense to me AT ALL and I will never understand it. I read this crap all the time, especially on FB, praying etc. If it is not meant to be, it will not be. In other words, you still die anyway.
