Dear Children,

All those hours of you being reasonably good and productive members of the family? I forget those. The ten minutes you were supremely annoying and painful? That’s what I get really worked up about.

That’s my fault. I’m pretty bad at that.

I’m sorry.

Start again?

Amen to that. I am sorry that you had a bad ten minutes but I am so thankful that you had the clarity of mind and the honesty to write this down - because it has held a mirror up to myself. Which has given me a fresh perspective for the day. May it last for many days to come - for you and for me.

Ah yes... Too true... Must go do something fun and say something encouraging to my kiddies. J
