Did you watch Glee tonight? I did, I did! I have been waiting for weeks for the premiere tonight and the girls and I sat with eyes glued to the tv and it did not disappoint! Wow .....amazing talent, energy and voices!
It's been such a busy couple of weeks here with nooooooo chance of slowing down any time soon, so I was happy to have a chance to make this sweet little card, just because :) I saw this poem online a little while back and clicked it into my faves ~ and while searching my files I stumbled across it again. Isn't life funny that way? :)
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 wooden blocks,
Cooking, cleaning, finding shoes
And all the things 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 then, in my small one's face,
That you have blessed me all the while --
And I stoop to kiss that precious smile!
To go along with this poem, I made my card using a Deedee's Digi called "Bear Hugs" along with the matching sentiment. These bears just get cuter and cuter to use! There is such a wonderful variety and did you know that there is a section of digis for just $1.00 in the shop? Take a peek! And don't forget the challenge going on right now to use green, orange and yellow on your card and link it up to the challenge blog :)
One of the sweetest rewards of being mommy is that even when the days are long, car commutes are long and piles of laundry and the "to do" is forever high and long, there is nothing greater than a sweet little smile and a loving hug to bring back that feeling of peace and unconditional love :) I'm so blessed, truly!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Off to bed for me!
Hugs 'n Blessings!
