So Christmas is officially over. We took down the tree and most of the decorations yesterday. It is funny how excited I was to put it up and then how ready I am to take it down! I also forgot how fussy the kids tend to be after Christmas. It seems like the excitement, extra sweets, parties and get togethers takes it toll on them and we are still recovering. I am always surprised by this but I shouldn't be since it seems to happen every year. The problem is not always the kids and their behavior but my own attitude in dealing with them!
Lord grant me patience and love for these little ones. I know you have given me everything I need for the job. Thank you for the joy and life they bring to our lives. Help me to see them through your eyes.
