The Highs & the Lows

I used to host a link up here called Hi&Low - I like the idea to talk about the best and worst of your day. I don't know if I'll do it again, but it's a good way to remember to talk about the good as much as we talk about the bad. That's the essence of the title of my blog - Daily Venting & Exclamations...when you're venting about the bad stuff that happens, don't forget to say prayers of thanks & exclaim for all the good things, too!

I think this picture is a good visual of that - the evolution of a fit in a two year old...
Evolution of a fit! Always comes back to Mommy making it better!! #son #kisses
I don't remember why he was upset now (b/c it isn't important) - but I think I wouldn't let him have chips while I was cooking dinner - he went through his fit, though and when I sat on the floor with him he crawled up in my lap, cried on my shoulder, and then in a bit I got kisses from him and all was forgotten. 

The bad stuff makes all the good stuff that much better. I think if God didn't throw in a little bad now and then we would get too comfortable and forget to give Him thanks for all the good - b/c the good is so good. That kiss made the fit fade away like it never happened!! I would give anything if my babies were all smiles all the time, but that isn't how life is...I'm just thankful that I am able to kiss their tears away and I hope they always turn to me for that.
