*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 and count 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 good night I will hold you

a little tighter,

a ittle longer. It is then, that I will thank

God for you, and

ask Him for nothing, except one more

day.............
