It was one of those days. My mother in law was over watching the boys while I worked online.

As usual Zane was trying to play us against each other. Obviously the rules are not as strict when Mommy isn’t at home, but that is another story.

I can be thankful my MIL is great about making sure my word is the last when I am home.

Back to the story.

Zane was crying because I had told him no. And with tears in his eyes he turned around and walked straight into the corner of the counter right into his eye.

Both my MIL and I went straight to him. I held him and cooed at him. My MIL went straight to praying for his booboo.

I felt convicted. I was just at a parents conference and I had even written in my notes to pray for the boys scraps and bruises with them no matter how small and big.

I knew this was a small reminder to me. God’s way of whispering this is important.

What has God whispered to you recently? What has God taught you through your children?
