Well… parenting foul for me today. But we survived.

love_proveWell… today is Sunday – it is supposed to be a day of rest, prayer & peace.  Not usually work.  But, today my family and I decided to do some cleaning in our house.  We tried to encourage the boys to clean up their own mess…but that did not go as smoothly as I had hoped.

I’m usually very patient with my boys – but today it could have been MUCH better on my part.  Thankfully my impatience lasted only for a little while, but the damage was done.  I hope that this will be short lived in my boys minds.

I pray that God will give me the strength to keep my patience and model loving, constructive behavior for my boys.  I am grateful that my hubby was able to keep his patience.

My promise to our family is to work harder at being a more loving, patient person, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend & colleague.

The GREAT thing about tomorrow is that it is a new day for a fresh start.  To having a great day tomorrow.
