Dear Lord,

Thank you so much for my daughter’s laughter.

There are times when I fret and worry about how I’m raising her and if I’m doing a good job, and her laughter is a swift reminder that I’m taking things too seriously.

Thank you for allowing me to see the joy in her eyes and share in her happiness when I am in doubt.

Thank you for allowing me to look at things with a child’s perspective and seeing the beauty in all things around me.

Also Lord, thank you for the reminder that even when things are not looking good, its up to us to make a sunny day and to appreciate the now instead of worrying about the later.

All of that I can see when my daughter smiles. Thank you for the reminder.
