A Native American Prayer-dedicated to each of those I hold dear

“O Divine Parent and Gift-giver, let me not take those I love for granted, failing to remember that you  have only loaned them to me for a very short while.

Help me, this day, you who are absolute love, to love those you have loaned to me as if tomorrow you would call them home to you.

Let me not take them for granted or be blind to the marvel of their presence, to the sound of their voices, the joy of their companionship, or the beauty of their love

May their minor faults and failings, which often cause me discomfort, be seen as trivial transgressions compared to the marvel of this gift that you have loaned to me for only a short while.”
