One piece of wise advice I’ve received came from a home management book: “Desperate Households” by Kathy Peel. She wrote:
Part of responding to the unexpected is learning to see situations for what they are, not what we imagine them to be.
You could stop and ask God for patience, wisdom and the ability to remain calm and not say anything you’ll regret later. We do ourselves and our families a favor when we’re anchored by our priorities and are able to wisely and calmly meet the inevitable crises we face day in and out.Kathy Peel
