Mother’s Day Prayer

Happy Mother's Day from the Sisters of St. Benedict of St. Paul's Monastery! We hope you are blessed by this special prayer for mothers. Moms—relax and enjoy today!
 

Relax.
   Just do it.
   Put your cares aside.
   Just for today.

 

Smile.
   Just do it.
   Tuck that frown away.
   Just for today.

 

Play.
   Just do it.
   The work can wait.
   Just for today.

 

Rejoice.
   Just do it.
   Sorrow need not
   Overwhelm.
   Just for today.

 

Enjoy.
   Just do it.
   Worry won’t help anyhow.
   Just for today.

 

Praise.
   Just do it.
   For the good times and bad.
   For today and every day.

 

Amen.
