(inspired by George Jones)
Give me just one more day, Lord, and I promise:
To eat the blackened banana and leave the yellow one for Sherry.
To tell my three best friends I love them.
To stop feeling sorry for myself, even when I’m hurting.
To open doors for teenagers at the mall without expecting to hear a “thank you.”
To write that love letter to Aunt Ellie.
To rub Nigel’s tummy every time he rolls over.
To forgive Charlie, I mean really forgive him.
To slowly lick a chocolate ice cream cone without dripping it on my blue T-shirt.
And to fully embrace the one more day you have given me, Lord.
