Just for today

Just for this morning, I’m going to smile when I see your face and laugh when I feel like crying.

Just for this morning, I’ll let you choose what you want to wear,and smile and say how perfect it is.

Just for this morning, I’m going to step over the laundry, and pick you up and take you to the park to play.

Just for this morning, I’ll leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

Just for this afternoon, I’ll unplug the telephone and keep the computer off and sit with you in the back yard and blow bubbles.

Just for this afternoon, I’ll not yell once,
not even a tiny grumble when you scream
and whine for the ice-cream truck and I’ll 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’ll let you help me bake cookies and won’t stand over you trying to fix them.

Just for this evening, I’ll 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’ll let you splash in the tub and not get angry.

Just for this evening, I’ll let you stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.

Just for this evening, I’ll snuggle beside you for hours and miss my favourite T.V. shows.

Just for this evening when I run my fingers through your hair as you pray, I’ll simply be gratefully that God has given me the greatest gift ever given.
