Next Time You're Frustrated With Your Kids - Read THIS

by Corey Carter

I came across this on Facebook the other day and it made me think.

Even though I try not to, sometimes I bring the stress of the day at work home with me and take it out on my kids, by being short with them and not as patient as I should be.  Having 3 small kids it's tough sometimes, but ever since I read this last week I have kept it in the back of my mind and hopefully has made me a better parent:

"You will never have this day with your children again.

Tommorrow they'll be a little older then they were today.

This day is a gift.

Just breathe, notice, study their faces and little feet.

Pay Attention.

Relish the charms of the present.

Enjoy today,

it will be over before you know it."
