New post on Catholic Working Mom

A Mother’s Prayer

by danardoyle

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 children lose –

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 minute, Lord –

Just at the sink or 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 stop to kiss that precious smile.
