I am so glad to start fresh today. Yesterday was an emotional adolescent day at our house. It's truly the first time I can say we had an "adolescent problem" at our house.
Does anyone have a fit-throwing needs-to-be-potty-trained toddler I can swap you for?
Just kidding. I love my girls so much but this growing up thing is all new territory for me and I feel totally unprepared!
And wait!! In about 2 years I can have both the adolescent and toddler at the same time!! (Which, as I understand it, are quite similar things.)
So as I came into the picked-up living room this morning and saw the sunlight streaming into my yellow kitchen...and thought about the day ahead...I was so thankful for this verse:
Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
I don't know about you, but I need new compassion every morning.
And so do my children.
