Well . . . my blog from last night was excited about Wednesday. The big event from Wednesday is now postponed.
This is life.
At first I was fairly upset. The postponement could have been non-existent had other people done their jobs. Doesn’t that make things harder? I’m sure you’ve been there; you see a potential problem, you can’t fix it yourself, so you let someone know who could fix it or keep it at bay, no one listens, then it becomes a problem that affects you . . . which is why you mentioned it in the first place. I quickly reverted back to a five-year old child. “I told you so!” I wanted to scream it. But I’m not five anymore. And even when I was five, I don’t think I would have had quite the tantrum that I wanted to throw today.
I did send an email. I probably shouldn’t have. It was as polite as I could possibly make it while being pretty peeved. The reply to my email was just as frustrating and upsetting. *note sarcasm here as I paraphrase* “of course no one could have seen this coming and this is all brand new information as of today!”
I wrote a reply. I deleted it. I wrote a reply. I deleted it. I thought about going to the basement and spending some time with my punching bag. Instead a sweet child gave me a hug and kiss ❤
Tonight I am thankful that this really just a little bump and not a huge deal. I am thankful for time to remember to learn patience and self-control – I’ll always be a work in progress. Tonight I am thankful for my kiddos to remind me to calm down. And I am thankful God is in control here. The outcome will be good, no matter the road it takes to get there!
