Unnecessary anger

by Anonymous

We were going to church and I normally fill out our offering envelope in the car, which I did...as I was getting out of the car it fell down into the side holder on the door....I didn't realize this and when I went back to the car to look for it, I didn't think to look there...I came back into the church and the service was fine...he thought I had put the envelope in my purse, and even though I was sure I hadn't, I looked all through it anyway...anyway, after service as we went to the car, I got in and thought about looking in that slot, and it was there...they had already locked the church so I'll have to wait till next week to take it, which is fine, as ling as I found it...however, Marshall is super pissed about it and not speaking...sometimes I get so frustrated with his temper tantrums over the smallest things...

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
