no grumbling

my tendency with these little faces is to grumble at them. i nag them for not doing things quickly enough. i fuss at them for being messy. i need to be for them all the time! i need to be cheering them on with my words & actions. i'm on their team... so why am i so often "against them" with how i talk to them?

"a soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger."
proverbs 15:1

"a gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit."
proverbs 15:4
