I am sure it is because of the holiday season, especially because I am not with my kids and they are with their mom, but have been feeling pretty down lately. There are big changes coming at work and I am not a change agent. Too comfortable in my own little niche. Compunded with the fact that both my wife and I have to deal with our ex's, which is a daily choice not to do so in a hateful way, concerning visitation and other things. I will tell you, and those who have gone through it know, divorce only changes the problems you face, not eliminate them.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
