Pray: O God, you show us all the way in this world. Yet I shy away when the pressure's on and all eyes are on me: when a colleague or a friend looks to me for guidance, or I know my baby is watching every minute, learning from everything I do. In the midst of it all, grant me the grace of the mama duck—she follows her instincts, leading her offspring into open waters, then climbing back out as the water rolls right off her back. Amen.
