SMART Habits Saturday

I've missed SHS the past few weeks, and I haven't done real well with my first habit...daily quiet time *first thing*. I'm going to keep working on that one this week, and add another: *think before I speak* with my children. I have realized this week that I have let stress and health issues get the best of me way too often, and it has really impacted how I communicate with my children...which is, in turn, impacted their behavior.:-( So, this week I need to get *out* of the habit of being negative with my children, and get *back* in the habit of kind, gentle speech.

It really sets the day up to be more peaceful doesn't it? Good luck this week.

I'm glad I didn't read this on Saturday, because I really needed to read it today. One of my middles is trying to piss me off today, I'm convinced. I just yelled at him and parked him in the chair so I could complete my 20 min. of time on the computer this morning. Kindness . . . kindness . . . I needed to hear that. Thank you.
