Everybody Needs A Hug Once in a While

One amazing thing that has blossomed in our family as our kids have found a new place is their extreme compassion for one another.

I know these aren't the best pictures but just felt they were such an encouragement...

Yesterday I heard these sweet words from our boy who has struggled the most as he comforted one of our other  boys who was having a difficult day making good choices.  ."it's okay.  We all make mistakes and struggle.  I love you."

My heart melted.

He gets it....yes, we all make mistakes and have consequences from our mistakes but finding forgiveness in all of it is a gift we give ourselves and those who love us in hard places.

Speaking words of encouragement.

You can't see from this perspective but there are 2 kiddos just giving comfort to this boy.  His heart melted at their love for was a sweet time for all of our children.

Thought of this verse as I witnessed this....

Two are better than one,
    because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
    one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
    and has no one to help them up.
