to be the best mother I can.
Give me patience when when I'm fed up,
give me strength when I'm exhausted
and see the things I have to do
piling up around me,
give me serenity
when every little thing goes wrong.
Help me see the beauty when my child smiles
and the openness to smile back regardless
of what else is going on.
Let me act out of love and only love.
Remind me that I am doing
the most important job in the world,
and that I am never alone
because You are beside me
every step of the way.
