I really wish we could sit down, with some coffee warming our hands and just talk- face to face- about the real stuff. About those days when life is just downright exhausting and being intentional is hard.
I remember one of the first times I forgot about a homework assignment for my oldest. I had been tired and not encouraging follow through on our routines. Life had become busy and there were sick kids, battling a cold myself, and just life in general. So the papers got pushed aside.
In the depth of that pile of papers, was my son’s homework project. I found it the morning it was due; after he was already at school.
