Today’s a big day! Twelve years ago–as you may remember from the “Oh, dear, sweet Jesus” prayers I had on repeat during those 90 minutes of pushing my big-headed baby out–I became a mom (thanks for this!). While I could fill 40 days with the mistakes I’ve made as a mother, today I ask for forgiveness for the one that haunts me the most.
Forgive me for the times I’m short with my kids. For the all-too-often moments when I’m short in tone, when I’m on time, when I’m short in temper, have mercy on me.
