Mothering at Midnight
We expect those first few midnights.
sleepless, feedings, diapers, learning, parenting
It’s hard to believe, but that stage fades into memory.
until licenses, friends, teams, homecoming dances
When we find ourselves praying that we have done our best.
God, keep them safe, lead their lives with wisdom far beyond myself or their dad. Guide them home safely. Help them say no to temptations and yes to compassion for others. Help us to let them go.
Mothering at midnight never stops.
But it’s absolutely worth every clock chime.
Sleep well mama, God’s not forgotten you or that precious child you pray for tonight.
