Happy Mother's Day

Dear Lord, it’s such a hectic day,
with little time to stop and pray.
For life’s been anything but calm,
since You called me to be a mom.
Running errands, matching socks,
building dreams with wooden blocks.
Cooking, cleaning, finding shoes,
and other stuff that children lose.
Fitting lids on bottled bugs,
wiping tears and giving hugs.
A stack of last week’s mail to read.
so where’s the quiet time I need?
Yet, when I steal a moment Lord,
just at the sink or ironing board.
To ask the blessings of Your grace,
I see then in my small one’s face.
That you have blessed me, all the while,
and I stoop to kiss that precious smile.
