So far today I am doing pretty well. I haven’t screamed at the kids or thrown anything in a burst of anger. I have not grumbled or gossiped or whined. I haven’t been greedy or self-centered. I have not yet changed anything to the credit card, and I haven’t pigged out on the chocolate cake in the refrigerator.
However, in a few minutes I will be getting out of bed, and I am going to need your help to make it through the rest of the day.
