Help us this day to be open to the possibilities, O God. May we take advantage of the opportunity to be fully present with those we love and celebrate that gift if given to us. May we recognize when those times occur, as we often miss them in our very busy lives. Help us to slow down enough to see the world more clearly and better set our priorities. May we enjoy this day and may it be filled with joy, laughter and wonder. All this we ask in your most Holy Name. Amen.
