small mercies

A cooler of water on a hot day.
Pizza for lunch.
Arms to go around when tears flow.
A small, round washer.
Dry days.
Shelter in a storm.
Rollercoasters and swag.
Food and friends, loaves and fishes.
Electric saws.
Bandaids and stitches.
Breath for life.
Strips of paper.
People and prayers.
People who pray.
Someone to hear the prayers of the people.
