The little girl sat on her bed, a small frown creasing her forehead. She sat and thought and with all her might, she could not find the words to say goodnight. Her Mother came in and sat by her side, and wiped a lone tear from her child’s eye.
“Mommy”. She said, with a quavering voice. “I can’t find a way to tell the Goddess goodnight”. She bowed her head and began to weep. Her Mother gathered her in her arms, and held her deep.
“My child”. She began. “It comes from the heart the words you say. Even if it is a simple goodnight”. She held and rocked her child, til her tears dried away, and it was then the child knew what to say.
“Thank you Goddess for this day, and Blessed be the Mother Earth. I thank you air, for the gentle breeze that blew through my hair. I thank you Sun, for proving warmth, while I played and had my fun. I thank you rain, as gentle as you fell. You provide nourishment for the grass and grain.
So Goodnight Goddess, until the morning light, watch over me throughout the night.
Her Mother smiled, and kissed her child on the forehead, and as she rose to walk out the door, her child softly murmured.
“Thank you Goddess for my Mommy”.
