Today marks the last in the first part of my exploration of Danny’s Bible. Don’t worry, as I said, it contains a treasure trove, and I will come back to it time and time again, but Danny would warn us about too much of a good thing. So I end this series with Danny’s Prayer. If Danny had a thought or a prayer of her own she would go to an old Underwood and type it out, then glue or pin it to a blank page in her Bible. This one speaks for itself and is signed at the bottom, Lovingly, Mom.
To keep alive my faith when evil seems over-powering; to know that my heartaches have been the heartaches of thousands of other women, who have risen out of the turmoil of life, fine, generous,
noble, and good women; to live clean physically, mentally, and morally; to be grateful for the sweetness and joy of life I have tasted; to be glad for the beauties of nature and the love of children;
to keep my interest in all things that make for culture and beauty; to keep sweet and not grow bitter; and for every unkind word or deed to give more of love.
