Knock on Wood

This week was AWESOME!!
Carter and I got along so well! I can safely say we made it through the whole week without once wanting to strangle or yell at each other!! WooHoo!! We even had a GOOD time!
I've been really worried about our relationship and have been praying really hard, along with working really hard, to have peace in our home. I have to say that this week I finally noticed some results.
And it feels GOOD.
Maybe there is hope for us afterall!! I was seriously dreading a lifetime of Carter and I at wills against each other. Now I know that it doesn't have to be that way. I'm not sure why this week is different. Could it be that he's getting out of this phase? Or am I learning to relax and chose my battles. I'd like to hope he's getting out his phase, but I think it's more the fact that I'm just being blessed with patience and a different way of viewing things. Either way, I'LL TAKE IT!

That picture says it all! I love it! I can't believe you had a WHOLE week that way. I love Jack, but I often remind myself that I love him. Three years is a difficult stage for me or him or both of us.

I am sure it's just a phase--I hope so. Eli and I are ALWAYS arguing. He has all these opinions and they are never the same as mine. I will pray for you if you pray for me! Why is Dora so easy and Eli so hard!?

Those phases will ebb and flow. The hardest thing is to pick your battles carefully and then maintain consistency so that those lines in the sand don't get washed away when a phase starts to flow again. Gather strength during the ebb and expend it in patience during the flow. (Sounds easier than it actually is...but I know you can do it!)
