Daily Spiritual Lobotomy

Typical scene in our house-

Two worn out parents, tired from a day of normal life.
Six kids, hungry, irritated and ready for bed.
Two parents trying to bath six kids strategically due to unfortunate unknown sexual issues.
Six kids (okay more like 3) whining, wet, and all wanting something.
Two parents counting down the minutes until the great peace comes over the house(bed time).

Then without notice my daily lobotomy occurs..

Two parents thankful for their six kids and encouraged by their spirit.
Six kids fed, happy and ready for pajama time.
Two parents serving their children two by two in the bath and sewing into them God's love.
Six kids (more like the 3 youngest) singing, dry and satisfied.
Two parents cherishing the moments they have with them(okay one blogging).

It's amazing what can happen when you....
Pause.
Listen.
Reflect.
And
choose a grateful heart.....
or in my case a full
spiritual lobotomy

So did this occur before or after the 2 donuts and the lovely "...than aunt leah" comment (which had to come from Lukas no doubt)? Just wondering. Cause if it occurred before then that would explain why you ate the 2 donuts. If it occurred after it would also explain why you ate the donuts. Either way, I'm just glad you ate the donuts.
