A Mother's Prayer

Oh give me patience when wee hands
Tug at me with their small demands.
And give me gentle and smiling eyes.
Keep my lips from hasty replies.
And let not weariness, confusion, or noise
Obscure my vision from life's fleeting joys.
So when, in years to come my house is still-

This one really spoke to my heart, Angie.

Did you write that? It is beautiful, but short enough to be memorable. Thank you!

Those words spoke loud and clear to me. I'm going to memorize this; it's beautiful!
