"How Could I Ask For More?"

(by Cindy Morgan)

"There's nothing like the warmth of a summer afternoon
Waking to the sunlight, and being cradled by the moon
Catching fireflies at night
Building castles in the sand
Kissing Mama's face goodnight
Holding Daddy's hand
Thank you, Lord, how could I ask for more?

Running barefoot through the grass
A little hide and go seek
Being so in love, that you can hardly eat
Dancing in the dark, when there's no one else around
Being bundled 'neath the covers
Watching snow fall to the ground
Thank you, Lord, how could I ask for more?

So many things I thought would bring me happiness
Some dreams that are realities today
Such an irony the things that mean the most to me
Are the memories that I've made along the way

So if there's anything I've learned
From this journey I am on
Simple truths will keep you going
Simple love will keep you strong
'Cause there are questions without answers
And flames that never die
Heartaches we go through are often blessings in disguise
So thank you, Lord
Thank you, Lord
How could I ask for more?"

OK, I know I keep posting old school songs, but please take note that I graduated in 1993! I am on my way to my beautiful cousin's high school graduation, and since I sang this song at my Baccalaureate, I thought it was fitting. It can actually be fitting for many parts of life; but to me, it sorta represents the end of childhood. One part of the song that I have definitely found to be true is the line that says, "...the things that mean the most to me are the memories that I've made along the way." Kendra, I pray that you make many happy memories along the way!
