Inspiration Monday......a day late

A Mother's Prayer

God, give me wisdom to see that today
is my day with my children,
that there is no unimportant moment in their lives.
May I know no other career is as precious,
no other work so rewarding, no other task so urgent.
May I not defer it, nor neglect it,
but by thy Spirit accept it gladly, joyously, and by thy grace,
realize that the time is short and my time is now.
For children won't wait!

-Helen M. Young

My Aunt Jeannette mailed this poem to me a couple of weeks ago and I hung it next to my computer to help me remember all the wisdom it holds. For time is short and our babies grow up so fast. I also chose one of my very favorite artist's paintings to adorn this post. Mary Cassett's art is simply beautiful and touching. Hope you enjoy.......
