The Stepmothers Prayer

Dear Lord,

Help me to have the patience of a saint when I see my stepchildren get away with the things I did not.

Give me the intelligence of MENSA combined to know everything I need to and already should on raising another’s child.

Help me keep a level head when my husband is mistaken for the ATM machine and keep my feet on the ground when a few kicks up the behind are in order.

Let me have understanding in all things even when half of the requests, such as you need to take the kids on holiday baffle me when they were taken out of the country for a two week holiday three months before!

Help me be the loving mother to children that wont let me.

I pray you can work these miracles of miracles.
