Prayer to a Girl Becoming

Prayer for a Girl Becoming

by Karen Maezen Miller

May she be happy
May she sing, and make up songs
May she be safe, and feel safe
See shadows only for playing
May she seek and find
May her smile always find reflection in my own
May I find in her name the measure I need
And give give give.
Amen.
 
My gratitude to Christy who sent this to me today. I think I’ll carry it with me daily.

  1. I love you Deirdre. Your mother loves you. My mother loves you. My daughter loves you. Love becomes you.

  2. I'm a puddle here just from reading that one line. Perhaps once we let everything else go, all that's left is love. That gives me hope. Thank you, Karen.
