Slice Two


I don't know why I can be so snippy.  Today was one of those days.  The kids would show me love, my husband would ask an innocent question, and out would come that sharp-tongued reply.  In the past, my temper was one of those things I'd try to give up for Lent, but it never worked out.  I'm not sure what gets into me.  Mostly, my mind will be somewhere else, and I'll feel put out by the interruption.  It's not a slow build where I can count to ten or breathe deeply to calm down.  Lucky for me, my family seems to love me all the same.  How lucky am I?


  1. You certainly describe a Slice of Life we ALL have - at least at times. Sometimes, it's probably the stress of managing all that we as 21st Cenetury women do! Think of it....we work at home and outside of the home, We expect ourselves to look nearly good, have families that act perfectly, create homes of Pinterest quality and never bat an eyelash! It's tough to focus on what we HAVE and our HAPPINESS and that is why I SLICE in March - so that I do!
    Welcome to the SOL!

    1. Thank you, Anita! Women are pretty awesome ; ) I think we forget that sometimes. It's fun to get a comment on a blog, too. Slice of Life is a fun way to connect with other writers.
