As I sit here doing HW with MJ, I ask that you give me strength and patience. Please help me to know when to push and went not to push. Help me to not get out the pint of Haagen Dazs that’s in the freezer and eat the entire thing. Help me to understand why some teachers assign homework on weekends and holidays. I also ask you to help MJ to get through this process. I know it is not easy for him sometimes. Please help me to know when he honestly doesn’t know how to do something vs him being stubborn. Help me to not be a “yeller” like mom was. Her yelling always made me feel sad. I thank you Lord in advance for all of your help with this.
