Family........... Grrrrrrrr! I love them and they love me. Getting along is a different story. Sometimes problems come up that are not of my doing. I cannot fix it even though I want to try. My husband stands firm about any more involvement. I have been spanked for involvement before. I have been spanked for meddling before. The peace has been disrupted before. I see the solution so clearly, but I have been told to step back and leave things alone. It is hard to do when things are so obvious to me.
I am listening to my peacekeeper this time. I am breathing deeply. This isn't easy and I feel a little depression seeping in around the edges. Jack is right with me holding me, loving me and, yes, promising me attention to my backside if I do not listen.
When all else fails and I value the ability to sit comfortably, I do the smart thing, Send an email.... no! Make a phone call...... no! Make a drive to the parties involved...... no!
I take a long, hot bath and let the world go by!
How about you? What do you to when the problems seem so big and you can't fix what is wrong?
