Sometimes it is a wonder that God is patient with me. Today I was doing a breathing meditation followed by a cleaning my house meditation and I realized that What I Learned This Summer is also something I need to teach Phoebe. Even though I have been reading my scriptures first every morning, I still read hers to her right before bed. A few nights ago I was really tired and I was just tucking her in and told her "no story tonight." I was totally going to skip scriptures too, and she called me on it.
"But we're gonna read the scriptures, right?"
"Um....Of course we are...."
Oh boy. If reading in the morning brought me so much more peace and abundance and happiness, what might it do for her or for our relationship? Why didn't I think of this sooner?
I think maybe I was just testing out the principle first. And I was enjoying the summer time schedule when she sleeps in longer than me (I have waited years for this!). But now I am motivated to get up even earlier, do my reading and meditation, then get her up for some kid scriptures and meditation. She loves to meditate with me. Yay! I think this will be a good thing to do before school starts. I can't believe Kindergarten is here.
I'll let you know what happens.
