This morning I was having a really hard time getting Skeeterbug to do some work. We had a late start which was entirely my fault. I need to be disciplined about our school day or we both struggle.
We all struggle, because my mood worsens and my mood sets the tone for all of us.
He was struggling with his math worksheet and would not, could not continue. I gave him something else to do and he was upset because he wanted to finish what he had started.
It occurred to me to pray. Then before I could it occurred to me that maybe hearing God’s Word would change things. I popped over to the computer and put on some Seeds Family Worship. These songs are pure scripture set to music. My favourite song is Call to Me, the first song on Seeds of Courage, so I started there.
It worked. Skeeterbug’s attitude changed immediately. We got through it. That math worksheet can wait for another day.
