2017 is coming to a close and I have learned . . .
I have learned just how much of an impact my actions (and reactions) are replicated to my children.
I have learned that I can be a bit over-bearing and that a benevolent dictator is still a tyrant regardless of my intentions.
I have learned that I am much weaker than I imagined and that I am capable of things I could never have dreamed.
I have learned that I cannot control everything even the things within the walls of my home.
But I have learned that God still loves me! And that He is never going to leave me.
I have learned the power of the Sacraments, especially Reconciliation.
I have learned . . . and perhaps that is the most important thing to have occur in 2017.
