the eldest boy and I had a fight about going to bed.
It is a fight that happens regularly in our house,
but last night we were both out of sorts.
He wasn't feeling well, and I was stressed,
and it escalated until we were both really unhappy.
He finally went to bed,and I readied myself for bed,
a new breath prayer burst into my mind:
Child of God, beloved and forgiven.
Child of God, loving and forgiving.
I am often too hard on him, as I am often too hard on myself, so this prayer seems to fit.
Thank you, God, for a new prayer.
