One word, and yet so many things are interwoven in this word.
As Anne Voskamp so beautifully portrayed in her post this morning, love is first patient. Patient with the frustrated child, the curious child, the active child.
And love is gentle and kind. Even when the patience is tested and stretched and pulled to the limit.
Thankfully, God is love, He is the source of all patience, kindness and gentleness. And He freely gives as much as I need to get through even the toughest day with the most energetic group of children.
All I have to do is remember to ask.
