When I am tired, please give me the energy I need to get through the day.
When I’ve lost all patience, help me learn to walk away.
When there is too much to do, help me prioritize.
When the house is a mess, help me to be okay with that once in a while.
When I am frustrated, help me to always respond in love.
When I don’t want to change one more poopy diaper, remind me that it doesn’t last forever.
When the baby won’t stop screaming, please give my heart peace.
When I don’t know what to do, remind me to always pray.
When my child is upset with me, help me cherish the snuggles afterwards.
When I feel alone, remind me You’re always there.
When there is so much noise, help me choose joy among the clamor.
When my children ask hard questions, help me respond with wisdom.
When they disappoint me, help me choose grace.
When I’m holding their little hands, remind me that You are always guiding me.
When I want to do something wrong, let me remember the little eyes that are watching me.
In everything I do, let my children see You through me.
Above all, God, help me cherish every little moment, because I will never get them back.
*Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms I know! You are doing an amazing job.*
