'Tis the Season

It's that time of year again, when any little thing can lead to Jon having a meltdown. Even situations he's handled well for some time can now trigger negative behaviors which quickly escalate beyond belief.

My goals for the next six weeks are to minimize the destruction (of all types) and keep us both as calm as possible. I trust that God will see us through as He has every other time we've traveled this road.

It is additionally challenging that this time of year coincides with gearing up for a new school year. I do neither of us any favors if I expect him to cooperate even more for me. In the past, that has led to a lot of frustration on my part. I've learned that all but the most passive learning just has to wait until he's back on track.

Your prayers are appreciated!


  1. My prayers are with you Heidi. You have way more patience than I do.

  2. Hope this week is going better... but praying for you & yours.
