Praying Away Their Boo Boos

Oh how I wish I could make everything better
for my grown kids
with just a kiss, a hug and a bandaid.

Don't believe parenting toddlers
is the hardest part.
It isn't.

There are sleepless nights
for a lifetime with families.
Not all boo boos can be fixed.
Life gets messy.
The world can be cruel.
Illness happens.
Choices aren't always good ones.

Praying helps.
I may too far away to 
wrap my arms around my kids.
But I can get on my knees
and pray.
I still have power
in protecting them
sometimes from themselves.

In Him,
