Morning light in the sky

flows through my window.

I hear Mom’s cheerful voice,

encouraging and gentle,

warming my heart

for a new day.

 

I love the plump, hot sausages

and  fresh bread I devour for breakfast.

 

Then open the books with kind Belinda.

It’s a great adventure.

What secrets of science

shall we unravel today?

What heroes and heroines of history

shall I meet?

They become friends.

 

I ride, I tumble, I glide

through landscape, gym, and water.

I love to move with gentle friends and coaches,

Stephen, Sargis, and Gabby.

Dancing with Mom is my favorite.

The music weaves a song in my steps.

I’m not striving, nor trying;

it’s free and easy.

 

Evening descends.

The colors in the sky

form a palette of gold,

then rose,

then soft purple.

Savory smells of garlic, onion, and soysauce

waft through the air

as I walk through the door.

Aimee puts a big plate in front of me,

hot and delicious.

Satisfied, I rest back in my chair.

 

Then it’s cozy time.

Gliding through moonlit streets,

I wonder who lives in the warmly lit houses,

as Papa takes me on a car ride.

Mom and I type.

We read stories.

King Arthur defeats the Green Knight,

or Beth (“Little Women”) plays the piano

while old Mr. Laurence leaves his study door open

and listens.

They are also friends and guides

as I pass through this earth.

 

You, O Lord,

light the way,

sending your angel before me.

With friends surrounding me,

friends from the past behind me,

a bit of soul shining through each story,

may I shine too in my story.

 

Thank you, dear Jesus,

for giving me a loving, peaceful family,

happy life,

dear parents,

Belinda,

and plenty of every blessing,

that every day there is lots to learn and do,

and love

to share.

Amen

(Belinda is Peter’s tutor, Aimee cooks, Stephen takes him biking, Sargis coaches gymnastics, and Gabby is the best swim teacher in the world. We thank the Lord for all of you!)
