Yesterday was a day of wonderful Spring showers. Thunder and lightning and lots of rain. Mommy loves those kinds of days, but the children don't seem to think they are that great.
It was fun to just sit back and listen as they try to comfort the three year old whose eyes keep getting bigger and bigger as the storm gets louder and louder. One child tells her that it is just the Angels taking pictures up in heaven, another one tells her that Jesus is bowling, one says it is a big church clapping and praising God. All of these answers were very cute and sweet and I know that they were just trying to comfort her, but instead of comforting her we ended up having our own little thunderstorm inside.
All the girls got so excited about what they thought God was doing to cause the thunder and lightning that we had our own little debate about who was wrong and who was right.
Momma had to finally step in and say "Alright you are all correct know quit fighting and stop scaring your little sister." I am finding that I have 6 little mommies and they all want to solve the problem at the same time just with a different solution.
Well as I look at this situation I thank God for them being so sensitive and caring towards each other, now I just need to help them learn to understand that there way is not the only way. I know that will take a lifetime of learning( which mommy is still trying to master)
