  2. When my friend and I had the urge to fix our husbands, we’d remind each other to, “stay in your room!” This helped us to remember that our husbands answered to God, not us, and that we had plenty of our own issues to focus on.

    Yep, I keep telling myself “Today I will____” it breaks my heart that I tell a whopper that big first thing in the morning. Thank God for grace, because I know where I ought to be going!
