Life Skills~

The kids grew up while I was miserable for a week.   I have always been fairly lenient with chores.
If I ask, I expect, and they do; but admittedly, I do most.
Now, thanks to Dad, they clean up after themselves much more efficiently;
and they take out the trash when it’s full :^o
and take care of their own dishes and trash,
and help me when they see the need.

Other things pondered~

I missed Valentine’s Day.
with my kids, with my preschoolers, with my science co op, with my church preschool buddies.
I had saved up all sorts of cute and fun things, and the holiday came and went past me-
Silly, but I feel like I missed out.

I also missed the beginning of lent.  Something I wanted to do this year; every year actually, but I don’t ever quite get there.  I decided to reflect upon the days leading up to Easter anyways.  Finding ways to share the love of Christ; to pick a fast, to give more, to pray often.   All the while being grateful for what’s right in front of me…
