Count Your Blessings

Just for this morning,

I am going to smile when I see your face ,

And  laugh when

I feel like crying.

Just for this morning,

I will let you choose what you want to wear,

And smile and say how perfect it is.
Just for this morning,

I am going to step over the laundry,

And pick you up and take you to the park to play.
Just for this morning,

I will leave the dishes in the sink,

And let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.
Just for this afternoon,

I will unplug the telephone and keep the
computer off,

And sit with you in the backyard and blow bubbles..

Just for this afternoon,

I will not yell once,

Not even a tiny grumble when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck,

And I will  buy you one if he comes by.
Just for this afternoon,

I won’t worry about what you are going to be
when you grow up,

Or second guess every decision

I have made where you are concerned.
Just for this afternoon,

I will let you help me bake cookies,

And I won’t stand over you trying to fix them.
Just for this afternoon,

I will take us to McDonald’s and buy us
both a Happy Meal so you can have both toys..

Just for this evening,

I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story about how you were born

And how much I love you.

Just for this evening,

I will let you splash in the tub and not get angry.

Just for this evening,

I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch

Counting all the stars.

Just for this evening,

I will snuggle beside you for hours,

And miss my favorite TV shows.

Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you pray,

I will simply be grateful that

God has given me the greatest  gift ever given.

I will think about the mothers and fathers ,

Who are searching for
their missing children,

The mothers and fathers who are visiting  their children’s graves,

Instead of their bedrooms,

And mothers and fathers who are in hospital rooms ,

Watching their children suffer senselessly,

And screaming inside that they can’t handle it anymore.

And when I kiss you goodnight

I will hold you a little tighter,

A little longer.

It is then,

That I will thank God for you,

And ask him
For nothing,

Except one more day…
