Well today I finally passed my test. Despite being sequestered indoors with both boys, unexpectedly, we had a pretty good day. I was prepared to chillax today as I was relieved of my volunteer duties at the school. Well, plans changed and we were all at home. God knows how bad I needed/wanted some "me" time and despite the change in plans, I kept it together. It was as if I expected the unexpected. We had a very peaceful day in spite of things being out of my control.
I've been struggling with this since I became a mother. As my kids get older it gets even harder to accept things that I can't change and respond rather than react. Until today, it's been virtually impossible for me to control my response...I always blow a fuse. Of course I'm not saying that I've got it all figured out, but I certainly succeeded today. Praise the Lord for baby steps!
