HELP!!

I feel for those who have traveling spouses. I appreciate mine all the more since he left yesterday afternoon. I cried like a baby and didn’t want to let him go. I was not looking forward to facing my children alone. . . them against me! My dad flew in today for 8 days. He tries to help, but he still doesn’t replace my husband. We work together as a team, and now that I am the team, I miss my teammate! I lost my self-control as I was getting the kids ready for bed. I use the term self-control rather than patience because that’s the truth of it. I yelled, I angrily and sinfully performed tasks, and I had a rotten attitude. The Holy Spirit brought these verses to my mind, so please pray for me to recall them tomorrow as I face the same trials. Also pray TJ has a safe trip home Friday. Philippians 4:13: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
