I end each day by walking into my daughter’s room and watching her sleep. Immediately the past and the future disappear. Like being with God, only the present exists. The anxieties, stresses, worries, and problems of the day – and the day yet to come – all vanish. At this moment there is only peace.
I make the sign of the cross on her heart and bid her goodnight.
Teach me, child, to know only peace.
