Prayer #27: La Vie en Rose

Prayer #27: La Vie en Rose

Lord, thank you for the unexpected peals of laughter and ridiculous comments that jug wine and pleasant company tend to incite.

Thank you also for a wide, wonderful world that holds the anticipation of travel. Help us navigate this modern-day Babel without embarrassing ourselves as stupid Americans, and teach us more words than fromage and baguette.

And thank you for both these things together -- the joy of seeing a loved one get a much-deserved trip, the excitement such a journey engenders, and the hilarity of figuring out a language beyond counting to ten and singing Edith Piaf songs.

Bon soir, mon Dieu. This petit chou chou is fatigué. Merci for the gifts of family and adventure.

Amen..
