I know some of you have probably come to the same realization that I have -- sometimes you have to let things "go" for the greater good. Really, that's a concept that we learn in elementary school, but for me it's been the hardest concept to put into practice in my marriage. So often I want to prove I'm right -- no matter how pissed off we get at each in the meantime! Sometimes I play the martyr, even when I know the short term gain is really a long term loss. But sometimes you've just go to let it go. You have to ask yourself -- is it really worth it?
I had a post up earlier today about my anger at my husband's attitude when he returned from his trip. But as I was trying to update it to add something, our computer froze up and when I rebooted the post was no longer there. I don't know what happened. I'm not really very technically savvy. But maybe the computer was really doing me a favor. If Mr. Daddy had read the post he might have laughed. Or he might not have.
Yes, I'm still a little ticked off. But it's hard to stay mad at Mr. Daddy when he's spending the ENTIRE DAY with Bubba and untold numbers of preschoolers at the Gwinnett Gladiators Kid's Day festivities as an unofficial chaperone.
I guess the moral of this story is that sometimes we all end up taking one for the team.
