A parent's prayer

Posted by Journal Mommy Yenny at 2:08 PM
A touching message that I get in my blackberry today

They're only little once.
Grant me the wisdom to guide them down the path that their feet should take.
For I know that they can never turn back and walk those paths again.
Give me the wisdom to guide their feet so that someday they'll be able to walk alone.

They're only little once.
Give me time to enjoy them.
For I know that after they're grown, I'll never have another chance to tell stories and pretend at those tea parties.
I'll never have another chance to watch them in a school play or sing in church, or to see them catch that first fish or score that first goal or hit that first home run ball.
Give me the time in life's busy schedule to have fun with my children.
 
They're only little once.
Let me be a loving parent.
Let me correct and not just punish, explain and not merely scold.
Let me know when to correct, and how often, and when it's best to just look the other way.
Help me be patient and give me a gentle hand to mold them in better people.
 
They're only little once.
Let me be a good teacher and an even better example.
Give the right words and deeds to teach them.
Help me teach them about YOU and how to walk with YOU so that when they are old they will not depart from YOUR ways.
For they're only little one time, only innocent and trusting and pliable for a space of time, one minute in an eternity.
let me do the best for them while I have the chance.
Amen.

Thank you to whom the author is, It's so true.
To raise three toddlers in house, among scattered toys, crayon pieces, laundry, bread-crumbs, milk or yogurt spill, chocolate and strawberry paste smeared on table or couch LOL, we should have lots of love and patience. And we are multiplying-instead of dividing- our love for them.

They are only little once..
they can never turn back and walk those paths again...
