I was tested this evening. Baskin-Robbins' Peanut Butter 'n Chocolate ice cream was calling CME's name. Since I had to pick up our oldest from church...and since I was out...
Please don't take that as if CME was testing me. He was not. I made the decision to go. I made the decision to walk into those 31-derful flavors. I made the decision to pick up the ice cream for CME and a scoop for each of the boys. I made the [conscious] decision NOT to indulge in my own scoop(s)! THAT is huge for me. Really. I loooooove ice cream. But I made the decision because I asked myself two things: 1) Am I hungry? [answer was no] and 2) Can I walk into an ice cream store and not get some for me?
I was tested. And I got an A!
