Its November and tis the season to give Thanks! There are many things I am grateful for in my life. But mostly it is my family, my children, my husband! They bring me true happiness on a daily basis. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a Mother while hear on Earth. It is a daily struggle, ensuring I keep patient while being a parent. I want things done so quickly and don't allow others to do their best, I just want it done! So everyday and every hour I remind myself to be in the moment and try and be more like Jesus! Gentle, kind, and loving. I test myself, when a moment arises and I feel my patience about to go out the window, I take a deep breath and think "I need to respond calmly and loving". There are times I do forget!
My little Hailey lately tests my patience; as I think she likes to test the waters and be defiant.
Hannah is in her pre-teen years and gets very upset, very quickly....upset and crying instantly.
My dear Mother is losing her memory and when I talk with her she cant remember if things she has been thinking are true or just a thought of hers. I feel bad because this causes some hard feelings and confusion.
I had to apologize to my hubby today because he called and I was annoyed because he wanted me to do something for him, and I sounded very short with him :-(
Not good! He understood! Hes the Best!
My dear Logan is struggling with his own patience while awaiting to hear from the Education Dept on whether or not he will be getting into the Education Program. He has been working very diligent, patience is a virtue! I pray for patience.......yet am so very Thankful for my trials and tribulations as it is a process of sanctification!
Trials develop godly character, and that enables us to "rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us” (Romans 5:3-5).
