I always described my husband as the one with the artist's temperament. when one thing is not going right... the whole world is against him. Today, It would seem that I have a bit of that in me too. In untangling the mess we were in over email,(see previous post) the pastor was involved and it turned into a meeting with David, myself, the pastor and the parent with the issues.

I have a dress to finish. All morning as I sat putting in facing and the zipper, the tension with the parent turned into a all out war and our Christianity was called into question. The dress suffered for it. I was convinced that I cannot sew. that the fabric and pattern were to hard for me. the dress was not going to turn out well...etc onward down the spiral.

Well now that the meeting is over, parent has apologized for overreacting. I am home and have calmly put the the zipper and lining in the dress. And it is looking pretty good if I do say so myself. Suddenly I am alot better at this sewing thing than I was this morning...

Yeah.. I let my emotions roll into other unrelated situations.

people are stupid. They let a set of beliefs (which has killed more people than any other group, war, or disease) rule over them, without looking into the deeper meanings.

Too much of anything is a bad thing. If you can get your pastor to tell this parent that, you may have done more for the kid with just that, than with all the supervision/encouragement/teaching.

We found out amidst the chaos that the pastor has actually had similar arguments with this parent. Sympathy was on our side.
