A Parents Prayer

I have this hanging on my wall and I think it is such a beautiful prayer!  It makes me stop sometimes and look at my parenting skills, (or lack there of), and my children, (no lack in that area! :). May this be a blessing to you as it is me! 

Lord, as I live this day, please grant me
the ability to laugh at my children's antics;
the time to share their moments of pride;
the need to praise their separate strengths;
 the faith to trust their growing judgemet;
the patience to understand their changing moods;
the virtue to forgive their disrespect;
the openness to learn their ways and styles;
the ears to hear what they are saying;
the tenderness to understand their broken dreams;
and wisdom to accept that their lives,
as my own, are built just one day at a time.
