On Grace and Vitamins

My students know,
"Grace is a spiritual vitamin.
It gives you what you need when you need it."
And boy do I need it.
"You're not the first young mother to come in here
overwhelmed.
You're more exhausted than you know."
But I get eight hours of sleep, here and there,
how much do I need?
"but few things are needed -
or indeed only one."
Only One. Indeed.
"My grace is sufficient for you,
for my power is made perfect
in weakness."
Bring on the vitamins.
