better

jack tuckie
little girl dancing,
twirling round about,
big brother heading off to school,
his young life’s new route.
tiny little pirate with
hair that just keeps getting redder,
mommy closes her eyes and thinks,
“Father, help me to always choose that which is better.”

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:41-42
