A Hockey Mom Prayer
A Hockey Mom Prayer
adapted by Laura McComb from http://www.chymfm.com/2013/09/18/a-hockey-mom-prayer/
May I find the best route to the hockey arena in rush hour traffic from work. May there not be any road closures, beginner drivers or other stressed out hockey parents in my path….

May The Child have remembered all their equipment. May I hold my incredulous yell of frustration back when we’re running late and he/she tells me that he/she MIGHT have left their hockey gloves on the floor back home.
May I find the grace not to scream at an opposing player who has just elbowed my child in the head.
May I find a spot in the arena that is actually under a working heater.May I not get sick of Tim Horton’s coffee, bagels, sandwiches and Timbits in the next eight months.
May I try, for once, to just enjoy the game and not get stressed out and embarrass my child by screaming in the third period “SKATE!!!!!!!”
May I have the right words to comfort and encourage my child when they have a bad game and the exuberance to celebrate with them when they have a good one.
May I remember that he/she loves this freezing, time-consuming, money-sucking sport and that he/she is a thing of beauty when shooting the puck.
And, most of all, may I remember that this childhood is passing all too quickly and that, one day, I will actually miss the all the time we spent in the van hustling back and forth between arenas. One day I will wish for that time back …….so let me hold it in my memory as long as I can because it is flying away from me, faster than my child on hockey skates.
