Thank you Lord for my children, every day they bring me joy.
Loving them, teaching them, watching them grow – I am blessed, truly, I know.
Each day they teach me, too: love, forgiveness, patience, hope, and to see the world with fresh eyes…
Grant me the patience to be the mother they deserve; guide me in doing what’s right for them.
Lord, it wasn’t until I was a parent that I realized what an awesome gift you gave us with your own son. As Christmas draws nearer, I am more aware than ever what a gift you gave us all.
