A Comforting Prayer/Poem

As you have read in my previous post. Life has been stressful. And yesterday wasn't much better. I forgot to pack Lydia a bottle when she was being babysat, so we had to go buy a bottle when we literally have no money from a mistake I made with our finances earlier last week. Go me. And it only got worse. But I did have a wonderful concert playing with the Hastings Symphony Orchestra. 

Anyway, my mother has sent me this poem/prayer for comfort. She always knows what I need to read and hear. I hope I become half of the mother she was. 

Oh give me patience when wee hands,
Tug at me with small demands.
Give me gentle, smiling eyes. Keep my lips from hasty replies.
So in the future when my house is still,
No bitter empties it's rooms may fill.

"There is a reason I know this prayer by heart. Hang in there."

I will never forget the love and support my parents have always showed me. I am not going to lie, we have had our tough times, but yet what parent and child have not had hard times? I mean, seriously? But no matter what, my Mom and Dad have always showed love towards me. I will never forget how wonderful parents they are still, and how blessed I am for God blessing me with such wonderful parents.

Love you Mom and Dad.


  1. Hang in there toots. It'll get better, I promise...and I've made that accidentally leaving NO wiggle room in the finances thing before, too so now I end up doing the math like 3 times before I hit send on ANYTHING, just to make sure. P.S. I absolutely love that picture of dad and's so cute!

  2. Believe it or not, these are the times you'll look back and be thankful for. We love you. And I also absolutely love the picture of your dad and Lydia. It's perfect.
