How can a day start out with so much potential and joy and just go completely down? I found myself wondering that yesterday. I have so much to be thankful for, even in the worst of circumstances, but sometimes it seems as if bad news is just this tremendous cosmic magnet, attracting more and more bad news. A lot of it is how I react to said bad news. I think I really need to work on being more calm and focused when bad news comes to me concerning my kids. I think they are my emotional blind spot. I don’t foam at the mouth and curse people out or anything, but I have been known to be a little bit angrier than usual when dealing with their bad news. Just a little bit.
