A Look Back...

Monday was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day with lots and lots of fighting and crying and tantrums...not all of which were done by The Kids. Sometimes I amaze/terrify myself with my ability to act like a two year old. It's not a pretty sight. And it hurts so badly when I realize that I've been the exact opposite of a Christ-like example for them.
We got throught it, though, and did a lot of praying with each other. I think that sometimes the "enemy" sees school as a great place to launch spiritual attacks, especially since I've been really wanting school to go smoothly because of my new job. (Click the link to read aaaallll about it!) I don't want to fight with The Kids all morning, then go to work from 5-10! I told Reilly that she can stop me anytime if she's feeling frustrated and we'll pray together. It's made a big difference so far, as she's asked at least once a day during school since Monday. More than anything scholastic that she learns, I want her to learn that God is our strength and our rock that can be leaned on at all times.

I hope things have gotten easier. I know it would be hard for me to have the pressure of getting things done so that I could get ready and be ready to leave for work. I know you will do fine once you get in your groove.
I hate days/weeks where I feel like all we are doing is fighting and struggling. I find the more organized I am, the better things go, but then there are the times where I have all of my ducks in a row and it all falls apart. "sigh"
I hope you have found your groove!
