Grace & Truth and Interruptions

August 2, 2019 |
Grace, Truth, and Inturruptions on Candidly Christian.

Can you believe August is already here?

We are buying school supplies and trying to fit in a few more trips to the community swimming pool before it closes for the season. Cross country and band have already started their practices and school registration is next week. The summer is quickly slipping away.

Yesterday, however, was not a picture-perfect summer day…

Work Interruptions

How to handle interruptions with grace #lifehappens

My head hurt, (as it always does these days) but I was trying to get some work done. And it seemed like every five minutes someone needed something. The last time, I had just done some keyword research, a child asked a question, and I looked back at my computer and complete blanked on my keyword.

I had found exactly what I wanted to use. It had all the right stats. And now I had no clue what it was.

Like, not even in the ballpark.

I was totally clueless.

I felt my irritation level rising. But I knew it wasn’t my children’s’ fault. They were just being kids. Kids that couldn’t play outside because it was well over 100 degrees. Kids that would love to go to the pool, but their mother couldn’t take them because she had a migraine.

So I knew I needed to take a deep breath and then take a step back. I unplugged for a bit. Snuggled with my daughter and gave her some of my undivided attention in a quiet room. When I came back to my computer, later on, I wasn’t nearly so edgy.

Heather knows it's not her kids fault she has migraines, but that doesn't always make it easier… Click To Tweet

    Heather, thank you so much for featuring my post, “Not now! I’m in the middle of something.” I’m so glad people can relate!

    I’m like you in that sometimes I have to step back from what I am doing. I always find things go much better when I come back to the task.
