Lucy's Beatitudes

Blessed are the poor in spirit who just don't understand why Mommy has to insist on civilized behavior, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn the loss of pacifiers, cookies and hiding places, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek who just can't say "please" in front of strangers, for they shall inherit the Earth.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for justice (and more M&M's), for they shall be be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful who leave the legs on their toys and their Play-Doh in the kitchen, for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart who know just when to offer a spontaneous kiss to a frazzled Mommy, for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers who know how to bring laughter to the third round of Mommy and Daddy's disagreements, for they shall be called children of God.

Blessed are they who suffer persecution for justice sake at hands of their terribly mean parents, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
