I failed. Bombed. Went down in flames.
There’s a line in a show I used to watch that goes ‘You’ll never make a good doctor if your head explodes!’ I suspect it hold true for being a Mom. Except that I today, my head exploded.
I was grinding my teeth together, snubbing inappropriate words in my head and had my arms crossed so tightly that my shoulders still ache.
I pulled a classic Donald Duck. I did not control my temper or seemingly care to.
Afterward, of course, I felt like garbage.
Sitting here I saw Lisa’s email titled ‘Imagine’. My first thoughts were ‘Imagine when temper is no longer an my first impulse.’ ‘Imagine when anger is banished.’ ‘Imagine the day that life gets easy – no, is easy.’
I’m sure it comes on the heels of reading a beautiful post by my lovely friend Tanya. You can see it here. My heart echoed her sentiment. I imagine the day when I don’t have to battle anything in my nature, when my nature will be closer to His.
Especially on days like today, I like to imagine that I can do better and then… ‘press on toward the goal’.
I love Fridays… even when I don’t have a positive experience to write about. Thanks Lisa-Jo for this wonderful opportunity!
