Tired wisdom

I'm a bit sick, but on the mend. Nothing to really mention or be big enough that I feel justified slacking off, but enough that I don't want to do a lot of things except lay around.

I'm reading the book "I Didn't Plan to be a Witch and Other Surprises of a Joyful Mother" by Linda Eyre. It's been really helpful in my attitude toward my most grow promoting child, Tennyson. The thought that struck my the most today was that instead of being surprised at the chaos that is sometimes created I can choose to wake up and think, "I wonder what great story Tennyson is going to help me tell Kevin later today!"

These qualities that are a bit trying right now are going to be such a blessing to him in his life if we can just get them focused in the right direction!
