Heartfelt Blessings at Bedtime

Girl sleeping with her teddyEach night I soothe my daughter to sleep with these blessings that are my personal version of the four heartfelt wishes of Metta Meditation.

At 4 years old it is the ritual of the loving attention that matters more than the content, but I like to think that as she gets older, the meaning of the words will take root in her spirit and send her into the world strongly held in the knowledge of my loving wishes for her.


“May your life overflow with loving-kindness.

May all your days know peace.

May you always know who you are.

May you be happy.”


What are your heartfelt wishes for your children?
