Love Dare Day 6

Day 6 (Feb 6) "Love is not irritable" Proverbs 16:32
A loving wife is not overly sensitive or cranky but exercises emotional self-control. She chooses to be a flower among the thorns and respond pleasantly during prickly situations.
Again, this is most definately a work in progress. Recently, I was overyly sensitive & cranky at a situation that we found ourselves in because of our Texas driver's licenses. I didn't respond very pleasantly to Ben & thinking back now know that I could have handled the situation much differently!
On the plus side, yesterday, I was calm during a situation that in the past I would have flipped out over. Ben told me yesterday that he believes that he lost the watch that I got him for our anniversary. (One of the practical gifts that I talked about a few days ago.) I told him that I would rather replace that cheaper watch than his dress one.....I was pretty proud of myself for not flipping out on him. I am hoping that this behavior change on my part will become more of a habit and not out of the norm!
