Had a good day yesterday. Mom and hubby and I went to celebrate my daughter in laws birthday. We all had a good time. Big storm predicted did not hit. Only a week until daughter is here. Mom twisted my arm and taking her shopping on Saturday for Christmas gifts. UGH! Hoping to use that day to get things done at home...ugh! Gotta get my head wrapped around this one. I don't know what to get my kids much less help her know what to get them....Right now I feel so resentful towards her and I hate that feeling. She can't help it....she doesn't drive...she wants to do something for the kids for Christmas..why do I resent it so? I'm on this jag and I want to work through it and deal with these feelings and get over them. Right now I resent all her demands on our lives. Help me Lord to be a Godly woman to love my mother in law. I don't want to resent her. I want to have fun with her and enjoy these precious times together. i don't want to say anything that I can't take back. Lord soften my heart towards her. Help me not to think of her as a burden and as a blessing.
