Well, I did.
And even the day before yesterday's yesterday.
I don't look forward to parent-teacher conference, but yesterday's turned out better than I anticipated. It's amazing how receptive your combatant is if you lay down your sword and say, "What can I do to make this relationship/situation better?"
Yet I don't attribute the conference victory to myself.
Much prayer went into yesterday's confrontation.
Why is it we are more often quick to attack someone who has done us wrong (the driver who cut us off, the waitress who wrote the wrong order, the airline who overbooked seats) and not quick to pray?
Today's a full day for me. I have Touched by Love judging packets to get into the mail or to e-mail. Just between us, I'm overwhelmed. But I think that's because I don't have a system yet. I need a system. My judging grid is kinda nice.
