It can be hard to lower our expectations, to give up our intentions, our commitments or our personal agenda. As a parent, I have found this to be a challenge on a daily basis in some fashion, occasionally you are given a day without any of it. But most of the time, it is all up to me. To let what will not work go, to change my attitude or my agenda. The end result, if I am capable of truely achieving this, is happier kids and a happier me.
As I said though this is a big challenge for me. When you add sick people into the equation, I really struggle. All of this to say, this day, the one pictured above was a good day, for all of us, regardless of sickness, dirty dishes, and laundry that seems to grow when my back is turned.
