Why prayer isn't meaningful

I was just saying a prayer for the health of a friend's nephew (3 year old in the hospital for surgery on his stomach) and I don't know whether I've never said this particular prayer for the sick or I've never read the translation, but in the middle of prayer it says something to the effect of, if you do everything right, I won't visit sickness upon you, no women will miscarry, no women will be infertile...etc.

Anniversary present

I found the anniversary present for my parents.
I woke up this morning thinking about it.
http://www.amazon.com/Celebrate-Around-Calendar-Historical-Affiliated/dp/0595880398/ref=sr_1_1/102-6026697-2353740?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1183732356&sr=8-1

I'm getting a personalized autographed copy with the personalization on their anniversary date. (In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that I'm friends with the author's wife. Here's a link to an article about the book. This is partially where I got the idea. Article in local paper yesterday)

I've been racking my brains for something that would be personal and meaningful and a book celebrating celebrations seems like a great idea. Or at least it did at 7:00 this morning.

Now I'm already second guessing. I have to hold onto my original euphoria. Waking up and thinking, "Yea! That's it!"
