Sometimes its Hard

Sometimes its hard to be patient, to be kind, to bite my tongue, to sympathize, to be grateful.

When people in my life throw me curves, I want to always be the good love, mom, sis, friend - but there are times when my temper flares, when I feel "why ME?? Why NOW??".

And those are the very times I should remember to take a deep breath...and think of how I have put upon others.

I know I am not perfect, so how fair is it to expect that from others?

So this evening, as I return home after a thoroughly frustrating day, I will set my mood to "calm" and try to have a little time to myself to let the stresses of the day fall away.
