A Moment to Vent

I am frustrated. Some days I just have a hard time understanding why people don't just do what they are supposed to do when they are supposed to do it. If I have an obligation, I will do almost anything I can do to make sure I meet it as it is expected of me. I will lose sleep, sacrifice financially, give up my personal time. It doesn't matter. If it is supposed to be done, it gets done. Sometimes it's at the last minute. But it's done, none-the-less. I do everything I can do not to let people down.

I am so tired of doing my part and not getting the same courtesy from others. I do my part and then wait, wait, wait. I am weary. And I am frustrated. And I am angry. I just don't understand why people don't do what they are supposed to do.

What a different world we would live in if people did.


  1. I agree 150%!!! Hang in there. People know who they can count on, and who just phones it in, or just drops the ball when extra effort is required. You are teaching your children important lessons when they see you being true to your word, and honoring your commitments. Love your blog!

    1. Hi Steph! Thank you for your comment and your words of encouragement. It occurred to me this afternoon, as I have been really digging deep with God and meditating on Him, that perhaps these areas of frustration really do no have anything to do with me. I mean, of course they do, but perhaps I am just being used as an instrument in a much bigger plan of God's … and I might not even be the intended recipient of His blessing. I will be looking for the lessons intend for me, as well. But, hopefully He is using me for His greater good.

      Thanks for stopping by!


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
