Today I Pray
Today I pray for Jeannie and her family. She sleeps still.
Today I helped a friend say goodbye to the home he designed and lived in for thirty years.
Today I thought of Mother. She gave me what I love about myself.
Today I thought of Father. He gave me what I respect about myself.
Today I thought of my children.
And their children.
And their children’s children
Today I thought of the love I have for my friends, especially those with whom I have fought. I love them the most.
Today I am thankful for those who guide me when needed, from the dangerous shores of angrily expressed opinions back to the healing waters of Love and Acceptance.
Tonight I pray for Jeannie and her family. She sleeps still.
