Oh gosh, I forgot to say thank you for praying for my son. He's getting better. It's just taking some time.

YES!!

I particularly notice that my mood affects EVERYONE and everything going on at home. If I am grumpy or nervous or stressed out and act in a nasty way, the whole atmosphere is thus.

Does it ever! :) It drives me to the Word and teaches me more all the time about my need for Christ to rule in my heart!

Um, yeah, unfortunately what I see in the mirror most often is not something I like. :(
Thank you so much for the linky-love.

Being single, I can't remember. but I know being a parent sure does this too!

That is absolutely true for me. I think this is something that should be addressed in premarital counseling - even in the marriage ceremony - because it was such a shock to me. Not that I'm not sinful - just suddenly and repeatedly seeing more clearly HOW sinful I am...

AMEN! I think family members in general reveal the worst parts of my heart... lol

I think it was Elizabeth George that said, "Who you are at home is who you are." Eek!
