I remember doing a lot of camping when I was young. It was always a challenge trying to cook over an open fire. Too many times I recall eating food that was not ready to be eaten. In the same way having a family is not always a fully cooked meal. When we are camping we enjoy our time together; rain or shine, good food or not so good food, etc. Life and parenting is a process and an adventure that we should enjoy regardless. Doing so will make a big difference, there will be healing in our hearts, and our days will go much better.
Getting better at being a parent and learning more of what love really is becomes our trek in parenthood. I love hiking in the woods, especially near a stream. I have grown to love the outdoors, and as well in my walk have enjoyed learning more of the depth, width, and height of God's love. Loving my own child, or a child that is not my own have become adjacent parts in my heart. As you walk through life let love grow. Don't let a uncooked meal ruin a wonderful weekend. Life is full of opportunities to expand the capacity of your heart. Don't miss them. In time love does become easy.
Have a wonderful day!
