A Mother's Prayer

God, give me wisdom to see that today is my day with my children.
That there is no unimportant moment in their lives.
May I know no other career is as precious,
No other work so rewarding,
No other task so urgent.
May I not defer it nor neglect it,
But, by thy Spirit, accept it gladly, joyously, and by thy grace realize
That the time is short and my time is now,
For children won’t wait!

-Helen M. Young

Tomorrow my youngest son celebrates his 3rd birthday, sometimes I find so much pleasure in seeing my children but there are times when I feel like a doll ran over by 10 ton truck. But I know that God has given me 2 beautiful gifts that no matter how naughty or stubborn they can be, they are God's gift to me
