The honeymoon is over

Okay. I just posted this morning that school was a dream. Well, I've been awaken. I am at a snack break right now, by myself in my room. AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This morning just didn't work. Kaiden, my 2 year old has decided that today he will torture everyone. Things have been thrown across the room and hit children, hair has been pulled, kids have been hit, etc. Training needs to happen, obviously, but I don't even know what to do! I thought when I planned our day, that Kaiden would enjoy playing with the toys in whatever center was out. NOT! Plus, the listening center I was so excited about was refused by my 4 year old, Kevin. I thought that would be a favorite. Maybe it will be soon. Training, again. Oh, the journey of a homeschool mom with multiple children. I am still excited to be their teacher. It is still my desire to train them and be with them, don't get me wrong. I am just frustrated at the moment by how this morning went. Grace.

God give me patience to train with gentleness and consistency. May I see them as you do. Help me to recognize the unique gifts and talents that you have given them. Show me how to develop them into the boys and girls/ men and women that you have called them to be. Mostly, help me to guide them to you. May they be forever drawn to you. May they desire you more than any and love you with all their hearts. May they seek you and follow you more and more every day of their lives. Develop me into the woman that you want me to be. Help me to put my own desires and selfishness aside and do the good work you have called me to. Thank you, Lord, that you are always with me. You are my strength and my guide. Thank you! I love you!!!! Amen.
