Let me love my boys for who they are.
Let me be proud of them for what they achieve.
Give me faith in your plan for them.
Give me patience, wisdom, and endless love.
I wrote this prayer years ago. A copy of it is stuck to my refrigerator, another to my bathroom mirror. It is my armor against Offspring Competition, a favorite sport in the world around me. May I be a better mom than I was last year. May my faith be a little stronger. May I be calmer, more encouraging, and less worried. Here we go again, Lord, please stay with me and bless my boys!
