When I die, please don't put something like this in my obituary:
She was happiest when surrounded by her family. She was always patient and kind. She never raised her voice. She always thought of others.Uck.
The reality is, my family, who I love, often drive me crazy. When we are at home, both my husband and son find it impossible to relax. They roam around the house, looking for stimulation. My son constantly wants something to eat. He will not leave me alone for more than 10 minutes at a time. It drives me batty.
I am not always patient and kind. I am often impatient and mean. I am often yelling and screaming. I am often selfish and thinking only of myself.
Will they put this in my obituary?
Probably not. But I can hope.
