Grace in the Giving

 My nine year old daughter could surely run her own bath, but she always asks me to do so still and I oblige with reverence. It feels like Mommy alchemy-the testing of the water temperature, shaking out the perfect amount of Epsom salts and lavender oil for her to wash off her day, draping a favorite towel over the sink for when she is done. 

Gone are the bath toys of yesterday and soon the simple task of asking Mommy to run a bath will also be gone. But, today I get to minister to my baby girl with a perfectly run bath and my heart sings in the giving of it.
