Blessed be…

It says in the bible “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God”.

I hope that’s true.

But at my house right now the peacemaker is sick of being the one who keeps the peace.

My kids are fighting a lot. It’s not uncommon for children to do this. It’s incredibly annoying though.

My husband is very angry at the fighting children and their inability to listen to his commands.

I have spent most of the weekend absorbing the negative and being the positive.

It’s exhausting.

My 6 year old punched his 8 year old brother in the head. He screamed and ran around the house and then kicked his 6 year old brother is his wobbly teeth.

There was blood. There were teeth. There were harsh words spoken.

As an added bonus there were also stunned in-laws sitting on the couch pretending to be invisible.


And there was me. Making everyone apologise. Explaining that we don’t hurt people. It’s not kind.

Blah, blah, blah.

Blessed may be the peacemaker but she also needs a holiday, a nap and hell of a lot of chocolate.
