step back - breathe
I'm thankful that for the most part, even through crazy pregnancy hormones, I can see when I'm being unreasonable or getting angry over nothing. That doesn't necessarily change my feelings in the moment. But I can recognize that I need to take a step back, keep my mouth shut, and approach the subject again when I've had time to cool off and think rationally. Sometimes I can see it but don't care. I'm thankful for forgiveness in those instances. Today I am thankful that I kept my instant anger and disappointment to myself, because in the end it wasn't a big deal and not worth getting into an argument over.
