The Effort of Forbearance

The kids started back to school this week and it had been a time of adjustment for all of us. In addition you the kids’ return to school, my wife has begun her last class in microbiology which means many an evening will be devoted to helping her set up experiments in our kitchen. Suffice it to say that all of this, along worth coaching my son’s soccer team leaves little time to decompress and i am one more seeing the results in an increase of irritation and anger in the mind. So,  before it builds up anymore steam i want to take a minute to recognize the sowing caused by a life overburdened with responsibilities and take time for the next week or so to turn the light of metta and karuna inward. May i be free from suffering. May i always find waits to practice the Dhamma in every situation and may i ever hold all beings with a heart full of sympathy and goodwill.
