Finding those moments

I'm not going to lie, things have been tough lately.
The kiddos, well, lets just say that they have been...trying.
To say the least.
I can't even count how many times I have seen tears, heard crying, temper tantrums, jumping up and down while screaming.
Let's just say that it's been a lot.

I know that this is all typical age-related behavior.
My four year old and two year old just don't have the language necessary yet to express themselves the way they want and need to.
Keeping this in mind I have been trying extra hard to have grace and patience.
Praying multiple times for grace, for myself and for me to have with my children.
I learned a long time ago not to pray for patience, ha ha.

Anyways, I have been finding sweet moments of peace and joy lately.
Whether it be pulling weeds out of the front walk way or looking at a book together, the moments are there.
The day still may be trying, but the moments add up, even when between tantrums.
