Noticing Grumpiness

I've noticed habits are hard to break.

I've noticed there is a nip in the air that feels like fall.

I've noticed it irritates me for someone to interrupt me or butt in when I am on the phone and they are only hearing half of the conversation.

I've noticed, about every other time, my killer body sculpting class annoys me because I can't do it as well as I think I should.

I've noticed I've got a lot on my mind, I am discouraged, and I feel heavy.

I've noticed some of these complaints things I've noticed are based on feelings. I've learned that feelings are temporary.

I notice I am a lot better off than this poor guy (who I noticed on my Saturday walk in the country).

And now I notice I am a bit grumpy. Actually, I didn't just now notice it. I've noticed it all day long! I'm going to take a shower and put myself to bed at a decent hour tonight. For a change. Maybe tomorrow I will wake up in a better frame of mind.


  1. Moods come and go, part of the journey, Annie, the question being only whether we tend to pitch a tent and camp in any particular spot. My faith is in you, your heart full of Him, and tomorrow another day....

    1. Yep, thanks, Jim! I appreciate your encouragement. I'm trying hard not to camp here! (And I just corrected a "typo", where I said I was trying "heart" not to cam here...wonder what that implies?!).


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
