God, grant me patience.
An extra breath before I speak.
An extra moment to take it all in.
Extra grace before my reach.
Renew my appreciation for every single moment in this life.
Especially the hard ones
As the day speeds along so fast
And my children test the seen and unseen boundaries that exist in this space
Let me nourish their delicate souls with goodness and love
And let me always have an open heart.
