BUT, when I began hearing arguments from both kids, of how one was right and the other was wrong, I finally said (possibly yelled) "Stop it!"..."Ya know what, just stop!" "If you need more practice getting along and showing love to each other, you can both spend the morning reorganizing the kitchen pantry!"
I sent Isaac in the pantry to help them a little....that will surly beef up the practice of the virtue of patience and charity
Madison and Nicholas,
I love you both SO MUCH....and I desire for you to be happy by living in a state of virtue, reaching beyond yourselves to LOVINGLY consider the feelings and intentions of others around you. I would have to say that this virtue needs to be especially focused when dealing with our family members, as these, are usually the hardest to assume a good intention from.
