A Mother’s Prayer

I got this from the bulletin board in Aki’s school:

A Mother’s Prayer by Angela Thole



When they scribble on the walls, please help me to see a rainbow!

And when I’ve said something a hundred times, please give me the patience to say it a hundred times more!

And on those particularly annoying days when I tell them to act their age, please help me remember that they are!

And while we’re on the subject of age, Lord, when I gein to lose my temper, please help me to remember to act mine!

And through it all, Lord — the fingerprints and runny noses, messy rooms and unrolled toilet paper, destroyed videotapes and broken knick-knacks — please help me to remember this:

Someday, these will be the days I will long to have back again.



Happy Mothers’ Day!
