I'm work weary on this Friday night but satisfied with the work week and my writing week. Bob will be home in just an hour or so, so I want to get myself and the house ready for his arrival. I'm missing him even more than usual after having gotten used to being together during winter break.

My writers group had a challenge this week (thank you Judy) of coming up with a prayer to the prompt of "If I had one Prayer." Early on this Shabbat, here's mine:

One Prayer

If I had one prayer,
I would keep it simple.
Open my eyes in each
moment to the next right
action. Guide mouth,
hands, feet in execution.
Show me how to live love

It is nice to read you had a good work week and writing week. (I am happy thar I finally did some writing today!) I hope Bob & you will have a nice weekend.

I like the prayer you wrote very much. I will continue to think about the lines:

Guide mouth,
hands, feet in execution.
Show me how to live love.

I'm so glad this was a good week for you. I know you have written some incredible things this week and this prayer is so powerful, I want to remember it when I'm this mouth, these hands, feet in execution! Wow. Thanks for that
