Bob Hostetler

Lord God,
I thank you wholeheartedly
that many of the joys of childhood
are still mine,
though I don’t often appreciate them as I should:
Running,
Jumping,
Throwing,
Eating candy,
Going potty (by myself!),
Watching fireworks,
Cuddling,
Reciting the alphabet,
Counting,
Making noise,
Playing hide ‘n’ seek,
Playing “Catch Me!,”
Drawing,
Writing my name,
Sliding down a slide,
Splashing in the tub,
Blowing bubbles,
Climbing steps,
Performing somersaults,
Spinning,
Spitting,
Sticking out my tongue,
Kicking a ball, a can, a rock,
Skipping rocks,
Skipping,
and more.
I am richer than I know,
as rich as any three-year-old.
