Yesterday, Sugar P threw her first full fledged fit. She's 24 days away from turning two, but this was a no-holds-barred-two-year-old-thirty-minute-long-fit!
In the middle of her screaming and thrashing around, I realized I was remaining supernaturally calm - unlike the way I handled the other two-year-old-fits from Sweet P and LP in the past. I was thankful for the Lord's grace in the moment.
Today...today was a different story. Today I yelled at LP while she was screaming because I took away a toy that she was having trouble sharing. I.had.no.patience.
But restoration and forgiveness are sweet - especially between a mother and daughter. I was again thankful for the Lord's grace.
Then, I was encouraged by this post - Let Them See You Grow. I hope it encourages you too.
