FAMILY AND TEAM SPIRIT!

Monday, October 05, 2009

emoticonAS SOME OF YOU KNOW I AM A MOTHER OF 6! I HAVE THE MAN OF MY DREAMS AND WE HAVE A WONDERFULLY HAPPY HOME CENTERED AROUND GOD!

emoticonI TAKE PRIDE EACH DAY ON TEACHING MY CHILDREN THAT WITH JESUS WE CAN HAVE A WONDERFULLY HAPPY LIFE. WE GET TO MAKE CHOICES AND WE NEED TO LEARN TO MAKE THE RIGHT ONE'S AND THIS APPLIES TO EVERYTHING WE DO. IN OUR HEALTH, OUR ACTIONS, AND IN ALL.

emoticonMY FAMILY THIS LAST WEEKEND HAD DECIDED TO PAINT OUR FAMILY ROOM. WHEN I MEAN OUR FAMILY I MEAN ALL TAKE PART. MY 16 YEAR OLD LOVES TO TAPE THE TRIM,I LOVE TO PAINT WITH THE ROLLER, MY 10 YR. OLD BABY SAT THE BABY, MY 8 YR. OLD HELPED ME WITH THE ROLLER, MY 6&5 YEAR OLD BOYS HELPED DADDY CUT THE LUMBER WE ADDED TO ONE OF THE WALLS. WHAT A TEAM! WELL WHEN THE PAINT DRIED WE HAD TO CLEAN UP. SO MY 8 YR OLD WASHED OUT THE PAINT PAN, 16 YR OLD VACUUMED FLOOR, WE THEN MOVED BACK THE FURNITURE. THEN HAD TO RE HANG THE WALL HANGINGS WHICH DADDY CLIMBED ON THE LADDER TO HAMMER IN THE NAILS TO PLACE THE PORTFOLIO I WANTED.

MY WHOLE POINT IN ALL OF THIS IS I AM SO THANKFUL TO GOD HE HAS GIVEN ME THESE CHILDREN BUT MORE SO, SO THANKFUL HE HAS TAUGHT MY HUSBAND AND I ON HOW TO LOOK AT THEM AS OUR TEAM, I SEE PARENTS SO OFTEN LOOK AT THE CHILDREN LIKE THEY ARE IN THE WAY AND NOT ABLE TO HELP. YOU SEE THEIR HEARTS BREAK BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE A PART OF THE TEAM, FAMILY BUT THE PARENTS JUST CANNOT GRASP THE IMPORTANCE OF LETTING THEM JOIN IN WHEN IT IS USUALLY WAY MORE FUN THAT WAY, TAKES SOME PATIENCE BUT WHEN ALL IS DONE THEIR LITTLE FACES ARE SO PROUD TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TAKE PART IN SUCH A BIG EVENT.........THANK YOU LORD FOR ALL YOU HAVE GIVEN ME!!! emoticon

    I have to say, thank you, for this blog. I ,too, am guilty of getting the kids out of the way b/c it's so much easier doing it myself even though they all want to help!

    Yes, God made families to be a team. You are raising your kids to be self-confident and self-sufficient.
    Blessings,

    emoticon emoticon Proverb 22:66 Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. God bless you and yours...

    What a blessed family you are! Thank you for sharing this with us! Your children are learning so much more than painting. You will touch many, many hearts with this story.

    The painting project sounds like a great family activity. Thanks for reminding us to be a "team". Normally I am good at that; but lately I have been rather "tired" and just want some time for me.
