God, grant me the patience to not give up. The determination to keep pushing forward. The love I need to give to my family. The confidence to know I’m a good mother. The faith to carry me through the hard times. The joy to laugh when I want to cry. A listening ear to stay in tune to what’s needed. The strength to persevere during times of weakness. But most of all, keep me close and never let go or give up on me!
