Well, I was off to a good start.
I really was thinking that carpool line would be one of my biggest challenges. It will be. Every newsletter from the beginning of time has clearly explained the drop-off/pick-up procedures. It's not rocket science. "C'mon People." almost rolled off my lips yesterday, but I stopped it just in time.
All went well at home until bedtime. My verbal self-control goes way downhill when I'm tired. :-( The girls fought. Cupcake began to physically harrass her sister. I stepped in. It got physical. After that is when my verbal onslaught started. I did not hide my anger, frustration, or disappointment. I did not use words that build up. And the things I muttered under my breath and in my head were worse.
I decided before I began that I would challenge myself to go 14 days in a row, but if I blew it, I would not start over. I will confess, apologize, and trust in God's unfailing grace. His mercies are new every morning.
The purpose of this is to make my words a priority...To think before I speak.
Blessings to you,
