Some people have it, some people don't.
Well, that's not true. Just some people have a lot more than other people I guess.
I have quite a bit. Especially with Payton. Maxwell on the other hand, tests my patience daily. Sometimes he wins and my patience loses.
Missy tests my patience on an hourly basis. She almost always wins and ends up back outside so I don't have to deal with her. Good thing she likes it so much out there.
But even beyond my charges, I notice my patience being tested lately. In line at the grocery store. In traffic. In my marriage. With God.
I'm trying to be more focused and realize that I need to relax and let life and God take charge and not be in such a rush. But it's hard with our fast paced society.
So if you see me sitting it traffic yelling at the car in front of me. Or hear me telling the boys to "Hurry UP!" yet again...remind me to breathe. The worst that can happen is we're a few minutes late.
I'd write more about this, but we have to have lunch, get Max down for nap, clean the bathroom, do laundry, clean the kitchen floors, pick up Payton from school, come home, do homework, eat dinner, go to church, meet with our pastor, come home, take baths, get the boys to bed, do more cleaning...
Breathe, Ellisa...just breathe.
