Gracious God, I thank you.
I thank you that I was able to take
a long walk today, pushing Lucy in her stroller.
I thank you that we could walk in safety.
I thank you for all the many times Lucy
turned around to look at me
and say “Hiiiii” in a loud voice.
I pray that every grandchild and grandparent
might have the opportunity to take such walks
or engage in other activities freely and safely.
May that day soon come.
Oh, and God, I could use a hand
with some aching muscles.
You know which ones they are.
