Oh what a dream! To have a child walk over and gently put his hand on you to say, "mom, you go back to bed I will take care of the kids!"
Another glimpse at perfection! After a crazy several days, the constant forgetting what they are told, the endless hours of complaining, I cherish the peek at times that some things ARE getting through!
I have to be careful to see the moments and Praise them in big ways. Because I can definitely get on my agenda and see the dishes that weren't done, the trash on the floor, or the sight of seeing them eat a second breakfast! I had to bite my tongue and remember what really is important.
I had a 13 year old son notice a need and jumped up to meet it!
I had 7 kids in the house taking care of business while mom slept!
I had 7 kids get along while mom slept!!!! HUGE!
The kitchen might not have been cleaned but school was completed!
HOW can I complain? I can, if I am on my agenda, instead of seeing the good!
Thankful the Lord stopped me from picking apart the undone and noticing what DID get done!
I am challenging myself today to look with my eyes open and see what IS getting done!
