(Kim here)How not to kill your husband…. No, not a book? Should be. I think when I am angry, it would probably be a parenting book. When am mad, it tends to be at my kids. Frustrated about how I dealt with a situation. I always turn to Dr. Michele Borba books. She puts me on a new path. I can hear her voice telling me it will be ok and I do better next time. Move on and be better – the mother’s mantra.
‘Tis the gift to be simple
‘Tis the gift to be free
‘Tis the gift to come down where we out to be
And when we find ourselves in the place just right
Twill be in the valley of love and delight
That’s a Shaker Hymn called ‘Tis a Gift to Be Simple and in my Christmas decorations box I have a lovely illustrated gift book edition of this classic. When I’m angry I, sometimes, turn to this book (or sing the song in my head) to remind me what’s important … the simple things in life and often the thing that makes me angry doesn’t seem so bad anymore.
(Peg here) Hmmmm, probably something that doesn’t require me to focus too much. Something like Vogue magazine with pretty pictures. Usually a perfume strip helps me to calm down.
