Gentleness

After reading on 4real the last few days regarding gentleness, I have decided to try to put it into action. Now whenever one of my little angels enters the room, I try to look up and smile at her. When I am frustrated, I try to speak more quietly, rather than louder.

It has only been 4 hours, but so far so good. I have only yelled once. I am typically a yeller.

My word for 2009 is patience. I think that gentleness goes along with this.

Great post. My new years goal is also patience. I, too, am a yeller. Grew up in a yelling family. I homeschool my three boys and recently read a great book by Teri Maxwell, "Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit". I highly recommend it.
Teaching our children is a tough job! But someone's got to do it; might as well be us!
