Grandparents are coming to occupy the children's attention this morning. I'm remarkably stressed about it. I fear it will not go well, and I will not receive the help I need. Perhaps it won't be as I fear: disrespect towards me.
I pray for compassion and patience on my part this morning - and fortitude against any well-intentioned but painful comments. The pregnancy hormones are making me rather vulnerable to comments that I ordinarily find annoying, but now find enraging.
