Some days I really struggle with being patient and calm. This is not a new problem. Despite outward appearances I have never done patience and calm very well.
On days like today I need to think calm thoughts and take a deep breath, even though what I really want to do is shout and yell and punch something, then run away and have a good cry.
I need to pray that God will build patience and gentleness in me and that tomorrow everything that's bugging me now will seem unimportant. A good night's sleep would also go down well.
