A Mother’s Prayer

Dear Lord, it’s such a hectic day,
With little time to stop and pray.
For Life’s been anything but calm,
Since You called me to be a mom.
Running errands, matching socks,
Building dreams with building blocks.
Cooking, cleaning and finding shoes,
And other stuff that children loose.
Fitting lids on bottled bugs,
Wiping tears and giving hugs.
A stack of last week’s mail to read-
So where’s the quiet time I need?
Yet, when I steal a moment, Lord,
Just at the sink, the ironing board,
To ask the blessings of Your grace,
I see then, in my small one’s face,
That You have blessed me all the while,
And I stoop to kiss that precious smile.

I found this prayer in amongst some other poems I’ve collected over the years. Isn’t it lovely and very true?

The love Mum’s have for their new-born baby is like nothing on earth, however it is comparable with the love God has for each one of us. That love which a Mother shows her child is one of the most important things a child will ever receive in its life. Therefore, for those of you who are Mum’s, God bless you, you do a fantastic job. To children old and young, say thank you to your Mum today, they do/have done so very much for you and have probably been taken for granted much of the time.

Mum’s are fab! Thank you Mum’s everywhere!
