Okay, I know I can't be the only one out there. I have 4 kids, and all under the age of 8....and all girls!!! So, lately I've been noticing that I am just angry all the time....I don't even know why. I find myself snapping at the girls for the tiniest imperfections....and that's not who I am!! I've prayed about this but God hasn't responded....I wonder if He wants me to learn something from this? I just can't stand myself right now. I don't know why this anger has taken over....it just seems that I am always mad because they spill something, or make a mess or they fight or they are whinning about something....and I get so angry at them. Why am I doing this? I have actually tried to get into a good mood before waking them up in the mornings, but it hasn't helped. I am constantly annoyed at them, letting every little thing they do get under my skin.....I have no idea why this is happening to me either....a month ago I was fine, I was doing everything good ....being nice, loving, caring and gentle with my children, so why has it all of a sudden crept up on me? Do any of you ladies have any suggestions? Advice? or can just relate? I feel helpless, like this can't be resolved quick enough. I don't want my kids to hate me or dread being with or around me. HELP!!!
