I catch myself saying please, please, please despite not being sure that anyone "up there" is listening or cares.
Like, someone's offering a brand new Ameda Purely Yours breast pump on Freecycle. I will definitely need this when I go back to work and because I want a bit more freedom than I had with my two boys when they were nurslings. It's not an inexpensive item.
I know the chances of me getting it are pretty slim. I probably am not the first to ask for it. But I still crossed my fingers and said "please, please, please."
Then I thought to myself, "Who are you asking? Who do you think is listening?"
I don't really have an answer for that but I'm hoping. I kind of need something fortuitous to happen. Now.
