Wow. What's with me these last few days? Let's just say I have not been the most patient or nicest person. The pharmacy broke the camel's back for me today after not explaining to me the double co-pay they said I had and having us wait nearly a half hour at the drive thru window. The cars behind me ended up turning around and leaving. Even though the pharmacy ordered the medication yesterday and said it would be here today-- they told me I would have to come back tomorrow for the rest of it. So I get to repeat the amazing drive thru experience tomorrow. Yay me. And no-- going into the store is not any better.
I know, I know. I should be thankful to have any pharmacy that I choose at my disposal.... and I am-- but when I am in the moment it is hard to see the whole picture and count my blessings. I think this is an area of my life that I need to work on. I know God is molding me to be kind and patient in every circumstance-- I just need a lot of work. I really do have so much to be thankful for.
Let me name a few.
Today at piano lessons William brought a Diary of a Wimpy Kid book. I picked it up and started reading and soon I was laughing. Such an easy read and so full of humor and little situations that I can totally relate to, I can see why all my kids love these books. So now I have the first book sitting on my nightstand.
Caleb who was incredibly helpful to me during a very unpleasant moment this evening. Honestly, he blew me away!
Rachel who finally understands why I don't want her answering the door when John and I are not there. It is not that I don't trust her. I don't trust them. And she gets it.
A precious little boy who is turning six years old tomorrow.
A full tank of gas. ;)
