The Mother's Prayer

School ends today people. Brace yourselves. My children will be out there.
I decided to create a mother's version of the Lord's Prayer. Drastic times call for drastic measures. Print it and tape it on your mirror. Repeat each day. We're all in this together, and if we work as a unified team, we just might make it.


The Mother's Prayer

Lord, please grant me the serenity to stay sane,
Through the endless and hot days of summer.
Please give me the strength not to strangle anyone under the age of 14,
And teach me, dear Lord, how to talk sweetly through clenched teeth.

Thou knowest the plight of this mother,
You hear her constant cries and wailing through the summer months.
Comfort me, oh my Creator, and bless my children to fall mute.

I love thee Lord, I serve thee day and night.
So, I plead for thy presence to rest upon me,
So that I might resist the urge to run far away.

Please grant unto me the gift of silence and children who are kind.
Help me to ignore my house in constant disarray.
I will give unto thee my obedience and effort,
And in return I ask that thou wilt help me to survive.

Amen.
