From zero to sixty

Anyone else go from feeling content & joyful to angry & frustrated in a manner of minutes?

Please tell me I am not the only one?

Less than an hour ago, all 5 of us were tangled up on the sofa. Mommy, daddy, 1 teenager & 2 almost 5 year olds.

It was the best feeling ever. To have the most important people in my world all within reaching distance was the sweetest, most comforting feeling.

All good things must come to an end.

It was bedtime for the twins.

They have a routine of looking at books in their beds to settle down.

No one was settling & no one was staying in their beds.

I’m in the kitchen after herding them back to bed. Again.

I am listening to the teenager complain that EVERYONE is at the Luke Combs concert but her. My suggestion of staying off social media so she doesn’t have to see all the posts is scoffed at.

I listen to how she would have rather seen him than the other concert we paid big bucks for last year.

She is not familiar with the term “hindsight is 20/20.”

More herding of the children.

One is crying because she wants a different book.

One is just flat out not listening because she would rather be on her iPad.

Meanwhile my kitchen is being trashed because the teenager decided to eat her feelings.

Things went from bad to worse & mommy let everyone know exactly how she felt about how they were acting.

Emotions & feelings are so tricky. I absolutely loved how I felt when we were all on the couch together.

I absolutely hate how I felt when bedtime went sideways.

  • Thankfully my world doesn’t have to revolve around how I feel.
  • Thankfully I could pray with the girls & kiss them good night & trust that these feelings of frustration would ease.
  • I am thankful that the Lord is not fickle with his feelings for me.
  • I am thankful He is true.
  • He is faithful.
  • He is good & kind.
  • And patient. Oh how patient He is!
