Prayer for a Beautiful Morning

O God, may I remember this morning when I had time to walk my daughter to school.

May I remember this day on those mornings when I am packing my lunch and her lunch in a rush and scraping the frost off of the car window and when it is still dark when I have to go to work.

May I remember the taste of the air and the sound of the birds singing and the aimless talk of a daughter to a father.

May I remember stopping to let a child pet my dog and hearing her exclaim confidently "He loves me!"

May I remember the strange joy of finding a doggie doo bag in my pocket when I thought I didn't have one.

On the mornings when there is not enough coffee in the world may I remember this morning which was enough.
