Excuses For My Out-of-control Temper

I guess for me, mom will always be there. So I tend to blow up at her for no good reason ....Simply because I can do it, and she will still love me, regardless. I feel it is an awful thing that I do, but sometimes I can't control it. (Deep inside, I know this is an excuse, because I can absolutely control it.) My mom is such a sweet creature. Wouldnt hurt a soul. Always being overlooked and taken advantage of. For the past 5 years, I've been really trying to make an effort to be nicer to my mom. When others in her world are so unfair to her, the last thing I want to do is take my anger out on her. If I had a daughter, I would be hurt by what I do. It's amazing how she still forgives me. I suppose I will understand this when I am a mom myself. She deserves the best.

I think about that all the time.... when she wont be there one day. :( In fact, that is what keeps my temper from getting out of control. Thank you for the perspective. You are right, moms are saints. I appreciate mine as best I can.
