Mexican Stand Off Part Quatro.

This morning I woke up thinking about a promise I made to God. There is a little story behind it so here goes.
About 3 years ago TLOML and I were separated for 3 days literally and 3 months in the same house while we worked things out.
With the help of a great therapist, God, and willing hearts we were able to work things out. We completely reconciled on New Years Eve. During the time we were seperated I prayed fervently for God to restore us and I made Him a promise.
I promised Him if he would just bring TLOML home I would quit complaining about his underwear in the floor, never closing the drawers on his bureau, the mess under the carport etc. etc.
And this morning I woke up thinking about that promise and if I loved him more that some dumb stuff in the sink.
Well of course I do. And he probably doesn't even see it anymore (thanks Kate) and even if he is messing with my head--so what. He can win. I don't have to. I love him more than winning.

Don't sweat the little things....and most of them are little things.

I find I can find no fault anymore with my DH since he was diagnosed with cancer last May.
He seems perfect now!

OH, honey...I do love me some flylady. She's the bomb, and she says, do it for yourself. And my fav spiritual study says in a battle, whoever's saniest should (must? no? it's best? no? at any rate for peace) LEAVE THE BATTLEGROUND. Good for you.
