A Mother’s Prayer

I found this prayer recently and thought it was worth sharing…
Dear Lord,
So far today I am doing pretty well.
I haven’t screamed at my kids or thrown anything in a burst of anger.  
I have not grumbled or gossiped or whined.
I haven’t been greedy or self-centered.
I have not yet charged anything to the credit card, and I haven’t pigged out on the chocolate cake in the refrigerator.
in a few minutes I will be getting out of bed,
and I am going to need Your help to make it through the rest of the day.
Anyone care to join me in prayer today?

This is an awesome - and appropriate! - prayer, thanks for sharing! I'm going to include that in our MOPS newsletter because I know the other moms would love it. :) Have a great day!

Love the prayer and love the pics with goggles! Do you have future Marlin swimmers on your hands :)? I keep hoping my kids will want to swim competitively like we did but no luck so far! Hope you are doing well.

I am praying for sure, for I fell WAY short today. Let's just say the words "This is the consequences for your choices" came out of my mouth a few times since today. My kids do goggles in the bath too, how funny!
