As summer approaches, many of us will be spending more unstructured time with our children. Sometimes, this can be frustrating and that it putting it mildly for me. There are moments where something arises from deep within me when my kids are fighting, complaining or whining. In that moment, it takes every ounce of God given strength not to yell, scream, throw out an unsavory word or throw my own temper tantrum. Sometimes, I do it anyway. . . . This is for all of the moms out there who work hard, love hard and pray even harder! May our minds always be drawn to the sweet memories and blessings our children bring to our lives – even when they are whining!
