Working together can be difficult. Working together with people you've never met, using only the internet for communication is more difficult. And when the other person tries to be helpful but it feels like they are overstepping their bounds, it is almost impossible. I'm working on assembling a prayer team for an event toward the end of Brent's boot camp. I volunteered to coordinate the effort--somewhere around 150 families plus various assorted other friends and family. Not easy, but not too hard. Until someone decided to "help out" and update things with information without checking first. Now it's messed up and ugly and I am frustrated. It's definitely a case of "too many cooks spoil the broth." I know her intentions were good but it's still frustrating. And exceptionally irritating. The message received is "You are not competent so I will fix it for you." Ugh.
Pray for my attitude. Today it stinks!
