This weekend I got sick.
While I was feeling unwell, my children did not stop baiting each other, hitting each other, slamming doors on each other.
I lost my cool and snapped at my children.
I immediately felt bad. In that moment, I had forgotten that I had the power to change my thoughts and therefore my feelings. I should have given myself a moment, but that moment had passed.

There are times when we have to give ourselves grace. I learned that when I’m sick, I need to give myself some space to recuperate so that I may be more loving and patient.
In order to practice self love and to better love others, we must offer ourselves grace.
This weekend, I gave myself grace.
I give myself the gift of forgiveness.
I ask for forgiveness.
I forgive myself.
Today and every day, I will give myself grace.
I invite you to give yourself grace.
Light & Love
