A Stay at Home Mom Prayer
With the exception of working full time for 8 months, the last 7 years I have been a stay at home mom. I’m finally going back to school since Lili, my youngest is almost 4! Wow where has time gone?! In the past 7 years I have found that God has put me on the path of raising my children. I feel that path is about to turn a corner and with Gods guidance he has helped my family get me back to school so I can finish. I still have no exact idea on what I want to be when I finish, but I do know a few factors. I want it to be in health/nutrition and hopefully influencing parents and/or children. Today is one of those days where I have to stop and ask if this is what I’m supposed to do and ask again for the guidance to get through tough times. In search for some inspiration, I came across this poem and LOVED it and wanted to share.
“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 on me to be a mom
Running errands, matching socks
Building dreams with building blocks
Cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes
And other stuff that children lose
Getting 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 minute, Lord
Just at the sink or ironing board
To ask the blessings of Your grace
I seen then, in my small one’s face
That you have blessed me
All the while
And I stop to kiss
That precious smile”

I know I’ve mentioned before that being a stay at home mom has a lot of sacrifices, but I wouldn’t change anything! My children, my family is my world!
