That’s it, I have really had enough. No matter what I do it is never going to be good enough. So from this moment on, I’m going to stop trying.
I didn’t grow up having the best of everything, money and affection were both extremely tight, so I can safely say I have over compensated with my daughters. Now as teenagers the reality is that this way has not done me any favours. The girls expect me to fix things, get things ready and provide things on their timetable.

I know I have not done my daughters any favours by allowing them to live like this. I’m not setting the right example.
There are times in life when things that matter need us to show patience, determination and dedication.
Children are by far not the only candidates for the most impatience award, I (raising hands) confess to not always understand the delay in life. The times I have prayed to God yet things haven’t happened. I don’t understand or to be perfectly honest enjoy the wait.
“A patient man has great understanding, but a quick tempered man displays folly”

I am frustrated at the demands of others when I know I should show Grace.
It’s far from easy being the example you wish to be. Each day brings new lessons.
James 1; 3

I’m exhausted Lord, my patience is wearing thin. I’m tired and am slowly losing my enthusiasm for life.
I know in my heart that this is just one of those days and tomorrow is a new day, but………….
