"A Baby's Prayer"
Thank you my dear Heavenly Father up
for sending me to this family so full of love.
For their teaching me of your gentleness
and of your constant spiritual caress.
How thin that veil is between me and you
as I look up at the sky so blue.
I still can feel the sense of your comfort and peace
and I pray that may it never, ever, cease.
I will try very hard to remember your
so that one day, when I feel your hand reaching
Out to help me on my journey home,
I know that I won't ever be alone.
And may my friendships be chosen with care
as I remember that you are waiting there;
For me to return to your loving embrace
as I so dearly want again to see your face.
In Jesus name, Amen

I have this wonderful article written by
Gordon B. Hinckley that I feel inspired to
"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he's been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey...delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, & jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas, and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride".
