A lot of good, a bit of bad, and no ugly

I learned something from my meeting at Anne’s school today. Anne still saves her worst behavior for home. Everyone thinks Anne is sweet and loving. She just has a need for attention and lacks self-control. We came up with a positive reinforcement system that will hopefully give her more attention and rewards for good behavior.

Which leaves me to deal with the ugly stuff at home. Stuff like being mean to Kate and yelling at me. Whining and crying and calling me “stupid” when she doesn’t get her way. You know… all the deeper “character” stuff.

So, I’m pleased. I’m thankful for the individuals that surround and support Anne at school. They can work on behavior. And I’m thankful that Eric and I are the ones that get to pour God’s truth and love into her. We get to work on her heart. Thank you for your prayers!

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

    HOORAY that Anne has her fantabulous school-team.
    HOORAY that Anne’s got you and Eric for her Home-team-teachers and God-pourers.
    And HOORAY that Anne’s got an Awesome Brother and Splendid Sister.

    May God Bless each of you “extra much” as you walk this journey together.

    Divine Stuff.

    Make up your own. HOORAY for re-defining and re-framing.

    Much Love & Warm Support as well as Prayer-Songs steadily flowing…..
