Ann at Holy Experience said just what I needed to hear this afternoon. Her reflections on "love is patient" are pointed and beautiful.
This morning I had to pray for more patience (seriously, how long should it take for a three year old to put on his shoes?), eventually deciding that getting to storytime on time wasn't worth my impatience.

Isaac stroked my hair last night as I prayed for him not to be scared. Abby cuddles under my arm when I read her a story.
