A prayer for all the weary Thursday mothers

May today be its own unique story.

May we remember that these kids aren’t an interruption, a distraction or a nuisance. May we open our eyes to this morning and remember that the two sleepy heads crawling into our bed are a gift.

May we find joy in what delights our children as you, Lord, delight in us.
