One Cup of Patience Please!!!!

Someone told me once that if you pray for patience, God will give you more things to test your patience!!!!! Do you believe that's true? Sometimes I do find myself asking Him.....ahem.....Hello God, what's going on here? I need more patience....not more things to be patient about!! It just goes to show that God does have a sense of humor!!!
One of my favorite sayings is.....Dear Lord, grant me the patience to endure my blessings!!!!
She is definitely a blessing and this week she has definitely been TESTING MY PATIENCE!!!
I know....I know you are wondering how someone so stinkin' cute could be testing my patience? Let me tell ya in a nutshell equation....1 very excited kindergartener + 1 first week of school + getting up super early + having a hard time winding down at night = 1 cranky 5 year old which = 1 irritated 42 year old!!!
Are ya following me here? By Wednesday, she was crashing and burning!!!
This girl needs a nap! In fact a nap will do us both some good, so tomorrow....we are going to take one together....snuggled up in my bed....arm in I can endure my blessing that is testing my patience!!!

Oh my goodness . . . reading this is like reading a recap of my week with my precious Jack! He LOVED Kindergarten, but told me Thursday that "I don't want to go back to big school because it makes me mean!" How sad is that??? I think a nap would do a WORLD of good for my kindergartener as well!!
