Update On Leadership

I am sorry to leave you hanging so long. I know that it has been months since I have written. I am sure the big question on everyone’s mind is…what did I think of the book? Well, to tell you the truth, I haven’t finished it yet. I feel like I have been living and learning instead.

One part of the book in particular that stands out to me was the part about listening. Looking at why your child is upset or throwing a fit, instead of just rushing into conclusions and reactions. Reading that part of the book was really good for me because it reminded me of what I needed to get back to doing. Really listening and watching the children as they go through their life. Try harder to understand them. I needed that reminder very much.

I will post again when I can. I do love the chance to reflect upon the wonderful gifts that motherhood brings. So much is changing in my life with my children. They truly are growing up and I am starting to feel the beginning of what it will be like when they are gone. I am trying as I have often tried, to enjoy the moments. To live, right now. Enjoy that last tiny feet, and cute comments, the funny moments and things my children do, that have me rolling on the floor laughing. I feel like I am in the summer season of rearing children, and with my oldest I am at the cusp of fall.

I am so grateful that God gives us time to figure things out with our children, and yet it feels that when we finally get things figured out, we are done with that phase of life. Life seems to work that way with more than just child rearing.

Thanks for reading!
