i really do love my life

My kids aren't nearly as cool when they are sick. Combined with the fact that Eddie is at the point where he knows what he wants to say but doesn't have the words yet to say it, frustration levels are high. So he hits, or pushes, or bites and then gets in trouble and then gets more frustrated. And I get frustrated because I am wondering where my happy, giggly kid went.


What's a mama to do? So I started praying. I pray for my kids everyday, but I have really been focusing on the big E this week. And you know what? Not only is he more himself these days (because God is faithful, awesome and perfect), but what I have discovered is I just like my boys more when I am praying for them faithfully. There is way more joy in the mundane tasks of filling sippy cups and wiping noses and changing endless diapers, because not only is it my measly love for them that drives me, but way more, His love is doing it. And that makes all the difference in the world.


How can you not love these dudes?
