We have all heard that phrase. Patience is a virtue. Our parents say it to us when we are hitting our sibling or begging for a candy bar as a young child.
Well, in 2019 I made a promise to myself that I was going to at least to be a more patient person. If you are stumbling across my blog for the first time, Hello. My name is Zoe and I am visually impaired teen who happens to have 3 younger brothers. Although they are a blessing some of the time, about 98% of the time they make me want to curl up in a ball and cry.
So much of the time their words are hurtful. They never listen, they always argue and that are about the worst cleaners you would ever want to meet. But among all of those negatives, they also can make me laugh the hardest I have ever laughed, they are supportive and kind (sometimes).
Although sometimes I dislike them immensely, I know that for some reason that I feel is still unknown they were put in my family for a reason. God works in ways that we do not always understand, but most of the time he only gives us things that we can handle.
On days like today, I sit here writing this and wondering why. Why did he choose all boys for me? Is it because of my hardcore attitude or my jailike tactics? Whatever the reason, I sit here alone in my room listening to the, playing next door with things I told them not to bring in the house and the only thought that crosses my mind is how lucky I am to have them. Yes, they drive me crazy. In fact, they might be what causes most of my stress, but I would rather live a life that is challenging and causes me to grow everyday than live a life that is boring and good for nothing.
So all in all, God does things for a reason. Sometimes that reason goes unknown to us, but in time and prayer we realize that those things he put in front of us because he knew that emotionally and physically that we could handle it even if we don’t think we can.
Thank you all so incredibly much for reading today’s blog post and if you have a sibling or child that is absolutely bonkers and at this point is driving you up a wall just remember how lucky you are to have them. Even, when they bring you to tears.
