Motherhood is such an inspiring, awesome, amazing journey. It is filled with ups and downs of all different shapes and sizes. Some days are hard. Some days are easy. It’s true what they say that being a mom is the toughest job you’ll ever love.
All of these sentiments go double for mothers of children with food allergies! Every single day our kids depend on us to protect them and ensure their safety. It’s an awesome responsibility that can get the better of us on some days.
Throughout my journey as The Food Allergy Mom, I’ve relied heavily on God to carry me through. Without His divine grace, I am quite sure I would never have been the mom I am today. I keep this prayer posted on my refrigerator to remind me of the blessings of being a mother. It is my mother’s day gift to you! Happy Mother’s Day!!!
A Mother’s Prayer
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 matching 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 them, in my small one’s face,
That you have blessed me
All the while-
And I stoop to kiss
That precious smile.
