meltdown

A nuclear meltdown is an informal term for a severe nuclear reactor accident that results in core damage from overheating.  Have you ever had a meltdown?  My son had a meltdown this morning and I'm not sure what caused it....it could have been getting up so early, or not being able to find the shirt he wanted to wear, or mommy having a new baby in her lap, or not being able to pack his lunch, or not being able to play the wii before school....all of these things i could have prevented....i could have let him sleep late and be late for school, i could have laid out his clothes for him and made him wear what i wanted him to wear, i could have packed his lunch for him even though i told him yesterday if he wanted hotdogs at school or packed lunch "hotdog" was his reply, i could have chosen not to have another child and robbed him of being a big brother, and i could have let me played the wii and not get ready....would this have caused him not to have meltdown?  did he suffer major core damage? or did he learn from experience as he went crying out the door?  i'm guessing there will be more meltdowns in his life.  i've certainly had my share.  i had one yesterday as i held my baby girl and thought of returning to work next week.  and i said "Lord...." and I stopped....and said thank you for the blessings of a beautiful daughter and son and a beautiful mother is willing and able to keep her for me.  i have had major meltdowns which lead to core damage and Godly reconstruction.

when was your last meltdown?  




"But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you.."

  1. Oh my dear, yes, I think the meltdowns have been very apparent for me lately as well. It sounds like lots of change going on in this household, I know the Lord will provide peace and understanding for all. Have a glorious day in Him!

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
