A benediction for fools. For those of us who know we haven’t got it all together, who are messy and unfinished.

For today;

May we meet the day with innocent expectation, 

not cynical or world weary or jaded.

Let childlike curiosity mark our moments.

.

May we be brave enough to admit we don’t know the answer,

and wise enough to ask for help.

Let us be relieved of the burden of certainty.

.

May we be happy not to have the last word, the last laugh.

Apart from at our selves.

Let us not take ourselves so seriously.

.

May we be fools for love, for beauty

and laughter ever on our lips.

Let the possibility of joy be around every corner.
