Yesterday was one of those days.
If I picked it up I dropped it.
If I walked into a room I forgot what I went into the room for.
I couldn't focus on anything for more than a few moments.
I had a headache all day.
My child said “I heard you the first time!” and it was a supreme battle of self control not to walk over to her and rip her sweet little head right off her neck!
All day long there was a rolling internal dialog of negative, angry, irrational and down right nasty thoughts rolling upon the shores of my life.
Thankfully the girlchild has taken to sequestering herself behind her bedroom door for most of the day. The only thing that draws her out these days is hunger, vanity (one can not neglect ones hair or makeup) and the Taylor Lautner movie she wanted to see that was on the DVR.
At the end of the day, the girlchild was still in her room and the Hubs had retired for the night I found myself alone in my quiet house. I administered a cocktail and breathed in the quiet and submersed myself in my in some mindless television.
On a fruit of the spirit scale of 1 to 9, I praised myself for my ability to exercise some self control by keeping my negative thoughts to myself and the fact that my daughters head is still firmly in place upon her neck.
So I will claim a 1 and be thankful for it!
My score for the day……
Fruit of the Spirit:1
Fruit of Peri-Menopause: 9
Yea for me!
One of my FB friends shared one of my all time favorite movie quotes. It is appropriate for the situation!
“I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow.”
Because we all know that Tuhmorrah is another day!
Thank You Scarlett
“For the Fruit of Peri-Menopause is hate, sorrow, chaos, irritation, nastiness, cruelty, distance, hostility and self-pity.”
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
