Prayer for My Mother

Dear God

Now that I am no longer youngI have friends whose mothers have passed awayI have heard these sons and daughters say they never fully appreciated their mothers until it was too late to tell them

I am blessed with the dear mother who is still aliveI appreciate her more each dayMy mother does not changebut I doAs I grow older and wiserI realize what an extraordinary person she isHow sad that I am unable to speak these words in her presencebut they flow easily from my pen

How does a daughter begin to thank her mother for life itselfFor the lovepatience and just plain  hard work that go into raising a childFor running after a toddlerfor understanding a moody teenagerfor tolerating a college student who knows everything? For waiting for the day when a daughter realizes her mother really is

How does a grown woman thank for a mother for continuing to be a motherFor being ready with advicewhen askedor remaining silent when it is most appreciatedFor not saying:“I told you so”,when she could have uttered these words dozens of timesFor being essentially herself --lovingthoughtfulpatientand forgiving

I don't know howdear Godexcept to bless her as richly as she deserves and to help me live up to the example she has setI pray that I will look as good in the eyes of my children as my mother looks in mine

A daughter
