I don’t know if it’s the change of season or back-to-school or a caffeine/ cookie shortage in this town, but I’ve noticed several friends lately feeling bad about themselves. They’re questioning if they’re failing their friends, family, the world… Lord knows I do on a daily basis.
Several years ago my dear friend Jill told me about her daily prayers. When I can remember them, they help me a lot when I’m beating myself up.
Make me a better wife, a better mother, daughter, sister, employee, friend and neighbor. Give me grace today.
There’s always tomorrow.
She told me, “I believe there’s value in trying to be better today than you were yesterday. I believe sometimes trying is all you can do. Kiss and hug those you love. Say you’re sorry when you’re wrong. Pick yourself up and do it again tomorrow.”
