My husband never measures his words in private or public. He says what he believes and lets the chips fall where they may. This character trait in him, causes me outrage and admiration. When I speak without measuring first, I usually regret it. He does not comprehend regret over speaking your beliefs. He truly does not care what people think of him.
I am restless. I walked 2 miles last night and feel wiped out this morning. There are huge events going on in the lives of my three adult children. I discovered on my walk last night, that I feel guilty if I'm not fretting about each of them. To fret over all of them at the same time is just too much emotional hand wringing for me. I believe that each of them are expecting (hoping) for me to show up in a certain way for them. I want to, I pray that I will be able to, but damn I feel kind of wore out. This really is when "living in the day" pays off. It makes life more manageable.
Today I will hand over my children to God and do the next right thing as the day and week progresses. I know how to do this because of a lot of people just like you reading this right now. We are so very blessed to have a program for living.
