One of the true blessings of keeping our kids at home is the relationships they are forming with each other. Some days it doesn't feel very blessed at all but they are learning. Learning to love and forgive, to tolerate and to let go, to work it out and to walk away, to share and to set boundaries. These are lifelong lessons and when you are so different from one another it can be hard and long ( I'm still learning).
Sometimes I get discouraged by the bickering and then I will hear it...laughter joined by more laughter and some more and I lift my gaze and see them, all getting along, co=operating and enjoying it.
I breathe out and give thanks for this moment.
It is so worth it.
