I was having a tough day with the grandkids and needed some encouragement to help me get through a day of them screaming, fighting, not sharing, etc. I did a Google search using “grandmother’s prayer” and I found this. It spoke to my heart and made my day so much better! I hope it does the same for you and I hope I don’t get into trouble for sharing it.
A Grandmother’s Prayer
Author: Barbara Burrows
Oh Lord, I do not ask for much,
Eternal beauty, or youth, or such.
Just give me a little hand to hold,
And I’ll forget that I’m growing old.
I do not ask for cloudless skies,
A life that’s free from tears and sighs.
Just give me a little face to kiss,
And anxious moments will turn to bliss.
For what is there, really, that means so much
As little hands that reach and touch,
As little eyes that search and see
Only the best in fragile me?
So let me grow more loving and wise
By looking at life through their wide eyes.
For through these little ones, you have given
This grateful grandmother a glimpse of Heaven.
