The best words

Why is it that the second you open the windows, your once calm, quiet children suddenly turn into loud, wailing children???

Needless to say, tonight’s been long, hot, sticky, and somewhat tough. :)

And I’ve not been the perfect mother.

But I must say, something that I have learned is that the most wonderful words we say, second only to true “I love you’s,” and sometimes more important, are the words, “I’m sorry.”

Sometimes it’s really humbling to tell your kids you’re sorry for being grumpy. I am grateful for the little whispers of the Spirit to go and talk to my daughter who was in bed. The peace and serenity that returns to our home when we all start to say we’re sorry to each other is unmatched. I am so grateful for Matt, who has been our family teacher on communication and admitting our errors and trying to correct them.
