With 9 ½ long days ahead of me,
I pray for grace
To always, always
Keep a smile on my face.
As we road trip to Somewhere Fun,
After hours and hours in the car…
May I not detest everyone.
May we truly make beautiful memories
Forever etched in our minds,
And may our words to one another be kind.
May my children please NOT play
The “don’t touch me” games,
Or I may start calling them not-nice names.
As we gaze upon your majestic nature
And breathtaking outdoors,
May I not hear, not even once,
“I am bored.”
Help us to laugh and
With each other joyfully engage,
And not fill up our brains with electronics
Or become like wild animals in a cage.
Lord, may we be grateful
For this 24/7 togetherness,
And treasure tiny moments of bliss.
For there will come a day.
My heart will ache and ache,
When my littles will be long gone,
No more road trips to make.
