He could have just handed us the coloring book Target was offering for Dr. Seuss’ birthday. He could have quickly silenced my kid with the free fruit snacks offered. But he didn’t. He gave my child choices and time to make them. He let him pick the book to read and the stuffed animal to hold. He pulled out two bean bag chairs and confidently sat in the pink one as my child instructed. He read with passion and care and laughed with my 4yo at the silly parts. Thank you Trey. You didn’t just read my son a book. You made a difference. Right there, right in a center aisle of Target. ❤️

Irritations as Invitations (post from Kirk Weisler)

irritable

But what if they don’t stop?

My wife Rebecca brought this one home from somewhere.  “Every irritation is an invitation to change.”

Sometimes my kids irritate me….and sometimes they irritate each other.  And even though I may be tempted to believe that they are doing this intentionally…the truth is much more simple and revealing.

In reality I believe it is pretty rare that another person is intentionally trying to be irritating.  When I get really honest with myself I can’t even imagine a person who woke up with the thought…”How can I irritate the heck out of someone today?”  And then they put together a strategy and action plan to do just that.

I am not saying it doesn’t happen.  I am just saying it doesn’t happen nearly as much as our reactions might indicate.   I say that because sometimes we react to people as though they are purposely trying to irritate us….when they are not.  So just what are these irritating people trying to do?  The answer may be quite simple… They are only trying to do the same things we are.  They may just be trying to survive the day, get things done, or even do their best.

When we are able to offer people the benefit of the doubt…and in the spirit of compassion consider their true intentions then their “irritations” may become invitations to a whole new perspective.  A perspective that leaves us with more patience for others and more peace for ourselves.

As I was looking for an appropriate graphic for this post… I came across this one…which with a little modification can, I think, be instructive.

annoying

Here is my slight modification – “Some People Stay “Annoyed” and what an unnecessary tragedy and waste of energy that is.

Let’s make sure we aren’t one of them.

Patience (post by Gigi Galluzzo)

Patience is earned while we gain in our successes. It is indeed hard to sit and wait while all we seem to do is want to move forward.
