    A childs laughter
    An old persons remembered youth
    Your first big raise
    Your babies first lost tooth
    Buying your first home
    Paying off the mortgage
    Finding peace in the midst of war
    That is what the Precious moments in
    time are.

    The veil of a wedding gown clouded
    with tears.
    Still holding your husbands hand after
    so many years.
    Catching the touchdown pass at the
    homecoming game.
    Meeting a lost long friend and still
    remembering their name.
    Finding a picture you thought that
    you had lost.
    Buying something special no matter
    what it cost.

    Praying your first prayer out loud
    and not stammering as you speak.
    Dancing at the prom and not stepping
    on your partners feet.
    Kissing your Mom goodnight, though
    you are long past the age of a child
    looking back and capturing the beauty
    of her smile.
    Grasping a concept of higher learning
    that you thought you would never
    understand.
    Looking up in amazement that this handsome
    fella is really your man.

    It's the precious things, the little things that
    stand out in my mind, when I count the blessings
    these are the largest in my mind.
    A babies kiss, a lovers embrace, the smile of your
    mother lingering on her face. Accomplishments
    small or not at all, but trying just the same.
    Being thankful for the little things and etching
    them in your brain. While all the world is focused
    on the violence and domination. I spend my time
    in prayer and quiet meditation.
    While Bush and Saddam fight for control...
    I sit and quietly find peace in my soul!
    For all the precious time...
    Is all that matters in my mind.
