Today I have been reflecting on this past week. I've improved in some areas but need much improvement in others. An "incident" this morning shows me that I am not "there" yet! I was watching a program on BYUTV when my husband came in the room, and not realizing that I hadn't started the program at the beginning, asked me a few questions about what was going on. Instead of stating with a "kind" voice that I didn't know the answer to his question because I hadn't watched ALL of the program, I'm sure my voice sounded exasperated because he was asking me questions. (at least I think that's what his perception was). The positive thing out of this was that "immediately" I knew that I had to make it right; that I didn't have the luxury of letting it go on and on. That is a great thing; it's a gift to realize what you've done as soon as you've done it and have the desire to fix it.
Obviously my thoughts weren't directing me in the right direction; but I know that no matter how hard I try that I cannot do it without the help of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I realize that everyone doesn't have my same belief system so however you get your strength in positive ways, I honor that. My strength comes from my Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ.
I haven't "officially" apologized yet for my reaction to my husband's questions; I did make pancakes as a peace offering but I know the words have to come, and they will....very soon, and I will start over again and make a greater effort to improve.
This day is not halfway over yet; so I look forward to more learning, to more thoughts on how my week has gone and ways to move forward in the next. I invite you to do the same for we are all here on this earth to learn and to grow.
