I wrote a few days about "Growing Pains". I was a bit caught off guard by some of the difficulties of growing up....I SOOOOO want each of my sweeties to succeed, to be loved, to feel love, to feel accepted, to be well adjusted adults, to serve the Lord, to LOVE their family and SO MUCH MORE!
The last couple of days, and I do realize it is just a couple of days, have been so nice. Our little sweetie has sought us out. She has loved on us, hugged us, talked to us about her dreams and ideas and it has been joyful for my heart; balm to my broken heart.
I did talk to her about what is acceptable and what is not. The H word is NEVER to be spoken. We may be angry, or upset, but no more H word. That was accepted and adhered to. :)
Mike and I have also been doing a lot of listening. Listening is always a good thing.
We have also started school, and our girls are ALL doing wonderfully.
Even though some have forgotten things, one is in desperate need of
math help, another reading help... .the attitudes have been FANTASTIC! I
am so pleased. :)
I love our family. :) I love that the Lord is working in our lives to conform us to His image.
I look forward to the day when we are ALL there. :)

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
