This is a video in which BOTH of my children show a great deal of selfishness and well, correction never does seem to stop on this issue. Even in my own adult life.
Next is a picture I captured on my phone while in the checkout at Walmart. Now I know Walmart can make just about anybody grumpy but once again learning to use self-control is important in this world.

Now to tell on myself, I am a menu planner and had a crockpot chicken on the menu for Monday night. I had a play date with a great friend and we hand an impromptu shopping trip and I totally forgot about getting the crockpot started so I had to make a quick menu change. I was a bit upset with myself but the other meal turned out quite tasty and no harm was done. I had the chicken ready for Tuesday night but got caught up in a bunch of other things throughout the day and forgot again and the chicken was not done by dinner. I was completely upset with myself because there were no other choices than to go out to eat. I haven't been shopping since vacation last week and was trying to make it the whole week without getting anything from the store. It was completely possible IF I followed the menu which I didn't. Ugh! We went out to Cracker Barrel and even had some problems there. Nothing more than a few miscommunications between my flustered self and the waiter but Justin and I had a good laugh about it.
Sometimes life is like that. We either laugh or cry. Of course becoming anxious, upset, angry or withdrawn are all in my arsenal of nasty reactions too. I am sure you can relate to the dailiness of life. More than anything I pray that you find hope for your weary soul that we all go through things that are far from perfect but in the midst of that we have a God who is with us every step of the way. Blessings!
