day 133 - life lesson
today was one of those days. dave and i had a super fun day/evening planned as a couple and as a family. we shared our plans with the kids and we all looked forward to a fun time together. INSTEAD we found ourselves sitting in the family room with the kids expressing our disappointment in their behavior and how as a consequence we would not be following through. i don't really care to go into all of the details of what happened. however, after a long talk about expectation, grace and forgiveness and a family prayer i couldn't help but think about the life lesson my kids learned today. life lessons can be difficult to face and/or endure - but they are a critical part of life. i pray we weren't too hard on our kids and in the end they remember how much their dad and i love them.
