Waking in the early hours this morning, I wondered how best to celebrate my daughter, who is many states away, enjoying family and friends on this auspicious day. Spirit has a way of nudging me when I ponder like this. "Give thanks!" she whispers in my soul, "Give thanks!"
Of course! So, for all my girls, I give thanks.
THE BLESSING OF DAUGHTERS
Blessed Parent of us all,
I lift up my heart and soul to you
in eternal gratitude
for the blessing of daughters!
I am rich beyond measure,
because I share in each of their lives.
I treasure each smile, each tear,
each bump and bruise, each triumph,
each broken heart, each joyous event,
each question and each bit of wisdom.
Thank you for our times together -
and our times apart -
for those times especially,
help us see how precious "together" is.
Thank you for our differences,
for these differences make us each unique women,
these difference bless our famil…
