Well we finished our week of life skills and for the most part things went pretty well. The weather changed and it has been in the 50's and 60's so I decided we would do our dreaded changing the clothes for the season. This is something I despise. There was one exception this year. I had been talking with my children about us having a cheerful heart at all times, so I knew I would have to have a cheerful heart while going through clothes. The girls immediately started to complain when I told them what are big task for the week was going to be. I stopped them and said, "We will not murmur and complain this year we will just put our hand to it and get it done." Remember we are going to be cheerful when we are serving Him and others. Before we knew it we were finished. It took a day and half, this task normally takes us a good week. I told the girls isn't it much easier when we just set our hand to it and get the task done instead of complaining. I was pretty impressed, no yelling, no fits, and clean and organized rooms. Praise the Lord he does bless those who are diligent.
