|My daughter, who was helping with the weeding, showing how tall the sunflowers are.|
I often use the excuse of physical pain or a bad day to give in to the temptation to say something mean or have a bad attitude. I'm not allowing myself any more excuses! If my back hurts I will try my hardest to keep a pleasant attitude. if I can't I will take some time alone until I feel strong enough to behave appropriately.
I will also keep my schedule less crowded on the days I'm mot feeling well so I won't get overwhelmed. I will keep an eye on how close I am getting to being frustrated and leave a situation or discontinue a lesson before I blow my top. I need to keep in mind that I can't take rashly spoken words back. Yes, I can apologize but that doesn't take the words from my children's or husband's ears. I want to be sweet and sting less with what I say.
|Sunflower, morning glory, and kale|
And in that day you will say;
Praise the Lord, call upon His name;
Declare His deeds among the peoples,
Make mention that His name is exalted.
