A Parents Prayer

A PARENT’S PRAYER

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my sanity to keep.

For if some peace I do not find,
I’m pretty sure I’ll lose my mind.

I pray I find a little quiet,
Far from the daily family riot.

May I lie back and not have to think
About what they’re stuffing down the sink,

Or who they’re with, or where they’re at And what they’re doing to the cat.

I pray for time all to myself
(did something just fall off a shelf?)

To cuddle in my nice, soft bed
(Oh no, another goldfish dead!)

Some silent moments for goodness sake
(Did I just hear a window break?)

And that I need not cook or clean
(well heck, I’ve got the right to dream)

Yes now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my wits about me keep,

But as I look around I know,
I must have lost my wits long ago!
(Praying for all you parents out there today! Especially all you young parents. Trust me, you will blink and the will be going off to college! Enjoy the ride!)IMG_4726
