Just in time for Mother's Day!

A Mother's Prayer

Father in heaven,
grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity
which you have conferred on me.
Let me realize that not even the Angels
have been blessed with such a privilege—
to share in your creative miracle
and bring new Saints to heaven.
Make me a good mother to all my children
after the example of Mary,
the Mother of your Son.
Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary
I ask your continued blessings on my family.
Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth
and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven.

I have always loved this prayer. It helps me get through those "difficult" days when it seems as if NOTHING is going right. On those days, I am still graced with the blessing of being part of God's creative process. What a wonderful privilege!
