Prayer of Gratitude for My Child
I thank You for my child's grin
that is more gums than teeth.
A chubby hand in mine
that often leaves something sticky behind.
A chortle that lowers
blood pressure and raises bliss.
The roundest bare belly
Those nubby little toes
in perfect chubby rows.
For the intense, gooey sweetness
in the snuggle of a toddlers cuddle.
