It's about to get real up in here... :)
I have been without sleep for about 9 weeks. You don't have to have kids to know that when you go without sleep, your not-so-best side rears it's ugly head. My not so best side has been out of control lately. I don't like being mean. I know it's not the right way to act.
My husband and I had to have a heart to heart the other day because his not-so-best side has been clashing with my not-so-best side and I think we went awhile without saying a kind word to each other. I begin most of my days with "I don't know how much longer I can do this". That's positive, huh? Yeah, great way to start the day. The truth of the matter is, it's not that bad. Yes, I'm tired. Yes, it's rough...but it's not forever. I will sleep through the night again. My writsts will no longer feel like they are falling off, and I won't get up off the floor like a 900 year old woman. :) The question is...what do I do in the mean time? I don't know the answer to that. Maybe you can help me with that. I have been marinating on this verse recently. It's funny how something will come into your mind and no matter how hard you try you can't shake it. That is what has been happening with this verse. Must be something I need to put into practice.
Ephesians 4:29 "Let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouth but only what is helpful for building others up, according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."
I am going to work on that this week...keep me accountable. :)
I am also going to work on eating less bite size snickers.
