FamilyLife Blended® Minute
Co-Parents: If you really want to bless your children, here's a quality to strive for.
About the Guest
Surrounded by four children (two hers and two his), I asked Kay how she was able to cope with between home pressures at the holidays. Kay said, "Well, I learned early on that letting the other home have the kids on Christmas Day was not only a gift to my kids, but to myself. I realized that giving them that time helped both homes enjoy the holidays more." Kay learned to be flexible. That's rarely an easy thing to do. I'm quite sure she was disappointed that first Christmas but what a blessing.
