My Cup Runneth Over

Here's the truth: My daughters are not perfect (you're shocked, right?). They fight. They tattle. They whine. They don't always obey or eat all their vegetables or finish their chores. BUT, when I see things like this card that Hannah left on her sister's bed:





Or overhear Leah tell Hannah, "You did an awesome job reading your book tonight!"

It blesses my heart beyond belief. Sometimes I get bogged down in the difficult stuff of parenting, but what I really need to do is to have a humble, grateful heart. When I start making a mental thank you list, there is no room for frustration or mom-guilt anymore.

Lord, I am SO very thankful for my Banana and Bee. So very, very thankful.
