The last couple of days, I’ve been really good at holding on to peace. We had a “meeting” on Saturday afternoon and I did really well with it. I was able to let certain things go and look at things a little differently. One thing that has been brought up in both of our meetings, was clean-up in the kitchen after cooking. I’m not sure why exactly this was brought up as I have been really good about keeping the kitchen clean after using it. There have been a couple of times where I had forgotten to clean out the frying pan, but that is all. And lately I had been waiting for it to cool first, so would be waiting until I finished eating. That was the issue my aunt had, in our first meeting. So this morning, I went down to get breakfast, and there are a couple knives left out, the counters were not wiped up, and there was a bunch of celery in the sink. So this is very frustrating to me. I understand this is not my house, so yeah they can do whatever they like, but if you are OCD about me cleaning the kitchen, why is it not OCD for you to clean the kitchen. Then my aunt just blames my uncle, whenever it’s messy, though I’ve seen her leaving things out too and forget to clean the frying pan, but it’s always his fault. A lot of times it is like she makes him do everything just so she doesn’t have to take responsibility if something goes wrong. It’s everyone else’s fault!
So today I am trying to breathe, and let go of the anger and frustration that I feel building in my chest. I am hoping that once I get to work, I can get my mind off it too. Am asking God to give me peace.
Love & Peace
