Serendipity Sunday: A Mother's Day Prayer.....

Serendipity: Making a delightful or unexpected discovery
(graphics from Karen's Whimsy)
Finding out one is going to become a mother is indeed a delightful discovery. This week I discovered a beautiful prayer for all kinds of mothers, which you will find at the end of this post. A special prayer and blessing goes out to my beloved son and daughter, without whom I would not have experienced the joys and blessings of motherhood. I love you both so very much!
May the blessings of the Divine
Be an especially bright benediction
Upon mothers everywhere
On your blessed day ~
On Mother's Day!
"Mother's are the gardeners of special flowers ~ their children."
~Tess Grant~
"Hundreds of dew drops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over."
~George Cooper~
A Mother's Day Prayer

God our Creator, I pray:
For new mothers, coming to terms with new responsibility;
for expectant mothers, wondering and waiting;
for those who are tired, stressed, or depressed;
for those who struggle to balance the tasks of work and family;
for those who are unable to feed their children due to poverty;
for those whose children have physical, mental, or emotional disabilities;
for those who have children that they do not want;
for those who raise children on their own;
for those who have lost a child;
for those who care for the children of others;
for those whose children have left home;
and for those whose desire to be a mother has not been fulfilled.

Bless all mothers, that their love may be deep and tender,
and that they may lead their children to know and to do what is good,
living not for themselves alone, but for God and for others.

Now that prayer nearly covers it all. I'd never thought of thanking my children for allowing me to be a mom. I like that. And so I will thank them today...this about an hour...what am I doing here chatting? Have a blessed and loving Mother's Day, Miss Sandy! Thank you for all you do in creating such beauty here.

What a lovely prayer. I have always loved Mother's Day, but I am aware it brings a pang for many.

I love these graphics as well.

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
