My pastor once mentioned that a major cause of relational problems is the inability (or refusal) to allow yourself to be influenced by your partner (or friend or child). This advice has helped me so much since I heard it. It helped me to understand why I was feeling frustrated in certain relationships and of course how I might be frustrating others. To me this means giving in sometimes, listening and accepting someone else's thought or idea, taking interest in something, or maybe just buying a pair of camo sneakers.
So Micah loves cards, it's the cutest thing. He reads them and re-reads them. He even cherishes them long after the holiday is over.
