Don't sweat the small stuff

Over the past month, I have been reminded that I have so much to be thankful for. Why did it take something so huge to be reminded of that?!? Now...I'm learning to not sweat the small things in life. Do they really matter? So, Emerson decides to pull all of her craft stuff out of the box so she can play or Hadden decides he is finished eating and throws the remaining food on the floor..Does it really matter???...No! 

These people are way more important than the small stuff.

This question: 'Will this matter a year from now?'

When Life Gets Too Hard to Stand...Kneel

Holding these two just a little closer today.

Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, 
for I am your God. 
I will strengthen you and help you; 
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (NIV)

 “What it's like to be a parent: It's one of the hardest things
 you'll ever do but in exchange
 it teaches you the meaning of unconditional love.”
