A look at I Corinthians 13:4-8 (through my mommy lenses)
Love is patient...during homework.
Love is kind...when you want to yell.
It does not envy...your children at bedtime while you are still mopping floors.
It does not boast...that "back when you were a kid..."
It is not proud...when you need to apologize to your child.
It does not dishonor others...while expecting respect for yourself.
It is not self-seeking...even at dessert time.
It is not easily angered...Say it again, it is NOT EASILY ANGERED.
It keeps no record of wrongs...even in the midst of discipline.
Love does not delight in evil...but gently shows another way.
(And) rejoices with the truth...Celebrating it's every occurrence, providing a safe place for it.
It always protects...both body and heart.
Always trusts...that you are THE ONE for the job.
Always hopes...you aren't screwing it up.
Always perseveres...because even if you do screw it up you are THE ONE for the job.
