This is my Season.

"I know that there is nothing better for [me] than to rejoice and to do good in [my] lifetime; moreover that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor-- it is the gift of God."

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

Argument

I had an argument with myself last night.
The kids were in bed and my husband sat down to watch TV. I knew this was the best opportunity to take a shower. Right before I went back to relax and enjoy some quiet time, I sat down to ask my husband a quick question. That was a wrong idea. I had sat down. I had gotten off my feet and chose to sit down.
This is when the argument began. I didn't want to go take a shower because I had sat down, finally. I wanted to go take a shower because it was a prime opportunity-with no interruptions.
I had a moment of selfishness with myself. Is that possible? I didn't want to tell myself to what to do. I wanted to sit. I wanted to put my feet up and not move. I didn't want to go take a shower anymore.
I made up my mind when I asked myself the QOTD. "I've already gone 4 days without a shower. What's one more?" That's when I took a really long hot shower!
