Good morning my fellow caregivers. My wonderful mother sent me this beautiful prayer and I wanted to share it with all of you. Ours is a difficult job and one that we manage with the Lord's help. Blessings to each and every one of you.
Lord, bless me this morning and each one I rise
With a wealth of strength; please bring hope to my eyes
Be sure Iâ??m well-grounded for those in my care
Even if the challenge becomes much to bear
Should this day bring hardship, please help me to find
A beautiful memory for some peace of mind
Please shower my life with compassion and love
As I take my cues from your guidance, above.
Lord, bless me this morning, as I make my way
Please give me the laughter to warm someoneâ??s day
Be sure I am steady, be sure I am wise
Be sure I am ready, should struggles arise
If I shed a tear, Lord, I pray you will see
Iâ??m making the most of the chores asked of me
As I strive to put othersâ?? needs â??fore my own
Always stand beside me, so Iâ??m not alone.
Lord, bless me this morning and each one I live
So Iâ??ll remain focused on the care I give
Be sure Iâ??m afforded the best tools allowed
To serve othersâ?? needs and in turn, make them proud
Please look down upon me and offer a smile
So, Iâ??ll always know that my job is worthwhile
Let me treat each patient and illness the same â??As worthy as this prayer, Iâ??ve asked in Your Name.
