Thinking Thursday - two years ago vs today
(read story of what happened here first http://robertsrockfarm.blogspot.com/2010/06/wake-up-wednesday-drama.html)
Here is how I look at one vs the other:
Yesterday I prayed that the ex-sitter would be able to see what went wrong and fix issues in her life!
Two years ago I would have wanted to hunt her down and yell at her, among other things.
Yesterday I was completly over joyed that my mother in law was able to step in and take care of the boys for the summer.
Two years ago I would have never even thought about her as being an option, because I would be to worried about what she thought of our home.
Yesterday I went to work and was able to focus on the work and not the issue past.
Two years ago I would still be dwelling on this, and would not be able to get my work done.
Yesterday I moved on.
Two years ago I would not be able to say the same thing...
So what makes it so different? I have learned to let it go! Let things drop. Walk away from it and hope for a new day to arrive and start over. This issue with the sitter is little in the whole bucket of life. I have done this with all issues in my life? Nope, because I am not perfect. But this issue was something I was not about to let get to me.
Do I have to work on other issues? YES! Will I ? Only God and I know for sure. I have started to try and work on other issues that should just be let go, and others need more work then that.
So today I was thinking....this issue is small compared to all the other things going on in my life. We have moved on and the boys had a great day with their Grammy.
