It’s tough

It’s tender

The heart often bends and needs to mend

As you try to be, all you can for those who depend on you for everything

As they separate and become closer to grown

The burden does not really lessen

You know you will fill the memories

With good and bad

Triumphs and failures

Children look to parents to be whole and well

An example of how

To live and to love

Time be kind to the weak places

Give my children grace to overlook my mistakes

May they think of me favorably

May I learn more of how God really is and how He loves

Show them His ways

Joy come surround

Grace fill the house

In between the messy life and the loud

Strengths hold

Love be the tie that binds

May mothers have the eyes to see themselves realistically

To give each child the best they can and trust God

To mind the gap

Keep the peace

Make the ends meetImage
