Today G and lP got to experience failure. We did the marshmallow test during FHE and lP convinced herself that the goal was to eat the marshmallow. She was so adorably dejected. G raced through a math exam and didn't write out any of the work. He was so surprised by the failing grade.
Failure is a natural part of life. We cannot be perfect. That feeling of failure is hard, and if we learn to use that feeling, to motivate us to try harder, then failure is good for us. It is important to learn from our failures and know that as children of God, we can do better.
I love my children. I am so grateful for how they teach me to be better.
