As I'm finishing off my raspberry leaf tea (that put me into labor), I enjoy reading the little tags. Today, mine reads:
Delight the world with your compassion, kindness and grace.
THIS I truly need to work on! I am so short-tempered and harsh. I can't seem to filter myself. My oldest chickadee told me yesterday after one of my outbursts, "I still love you mama." And gave me a big hug. *GUILT*
Another time yesterday after I blew up at her little sister for peeing on the couch for the second time that day, she said, "Be nice mama! She is a child of God and God is watching you."
It seems my vow to myself to never be like my mom, or to always be a stellar mom is not going so well currently. So yes, I should really delight the world with my compassion, kindness and grace....if I could only figure out where I misplaced it.
