My Turn to Say Grace
Today my baby girl, my youngest, 18, was happy. Relaxed and down to her toes contented. It was so nice to see her sitting outside in the sun next to her PopPop, talking, laughing, so grown up ...
Today was a perfect day because of that. All I want, really (besides a grand wish for all of humanity's peace and comfort) is for my kids to be happy, healthy, safe. How little is required for all of the pieces to slide perfectly into place. I sit on my little balcony and commune with the couple of trees that bend my way. There is a cat by my feet, grateful for the breeze and the tease of birds in view. I don't need to know where we will live in a few months or if our cars will hold up or what I will do without health insurance, or if I will ever find work that can sustain us. All I really need to know, is that right this minute, all is right with our small slice of the world.
