Yesterday I felt helpless

Yesterday I felt helpless when:
My oldest daughter cried after talking to her grandma on the phone. When asked why she was crying she said "because talking to grandma reminded me of how much I miss her"

Yesterday I felt helpless when:
I watched my son almost drown in the community pool. Thank god my friend was standing right next to him and got him.

Yesterday I felt helpless when:
My husband came home frustrated for the second day because his commute home took an hour and a half to drive a 20 minute max drive (I thought we moved from Orange County to get rid of this problem)

Yesterday I felt helpless when:
I found out that a lady on one of my boards whose son was born on the exact same day as my son was just diagnosed with leukemia. I couldn't help but wonder, what if it had been us?

Yesterday I felt helpless when:
I made one of our favorite family desserts and it tasted like crap. And I have no idea why.

Hopefully today will be better. I know these problems are very minor in life (well except for the lady on my board) But sometimes you just can't help but feel like you have no control over life.

    You say that "sometimes you just can't help but feel like you have no control over your life." This implies that sometimes you do feel like you have control--Please, tell me, what's your secret, how do you achieve this?

    Anyway, if your son peeing all over the place isn't on the list of reasons why you feel helpless, you can at least be glad that he exercised control over his bladder.
