Lately I am working on seeing things from other people’s perspective.
Particularly my husband’s and my kids’.
Especially the kids, who are shorter, and not quite as wise and are still learning and soaking things in every day in some way.
I have to try to remember that they do not “know” everything I expect or want them to know, yet. And frankly they may never, because they are their own people.
But I also have to remember that I am one of their most important guides and teachers in this life. I am their example and they are watching me and listening to me (more than I think, I am guessing) every day of every week.
I want them to see someone who is kind and loving and trying their hardest to be full of grace.
Lately, I have not been that way as much as I should.
But I see it. And I know it and I am ready to try even harder to get there.
God has given me this beautiful family and I intend to cherish it.
As much as I possibly can…
