Next time you worry about fitting your prayers in during your overly-packed days with the kids, think about this notion which I wholeheartedly agree with, and well, it comes from a saint!
"Do not distress yourself about your prayers. It is not always necessary to employ words, even inwardly, it is enough to raise your heart and let it rest on our Lord, to look lovingly up toward this divine Lover of our souls for between lovers the eyes speak more eloquently than the tongue."
~ St. Francis De Sales
Of course, this doesn't mean you don't look for every opportunity for prayer because you can fit your Rosaries in on your fingertips when your hands are busy with the care of the household and family. But, there are plenty of times when your focus is critically needed for your family, and you can't formulate the words to speak to Our Lord; it is then when your loving looks to Him are enough - He knows!
