It seems that Spring has hit more than just the plants and animals outside our house, but has come to the hearts of my family as well. It's been a long, cold winter, filled with dread, worry, frustration, and sadness, but each of us is feeling as though we are moving past it into a new of renewal.
After so much frustration, it would seem that the last thing anyone would want is rules. Just one more thing to keep track of and to think about, yet those guidelines seem like the very thing that might bring us into a new era of discipline and peace. My family is excited to have reference points, a written, constant plan for each day. So, as we start our dance with discipline, I look forward to a time of renewed spirits, peace and sunshine.
