"Interruptions can be viewed as sources of irritation or opportunities for service, as moments lost or experience gained, as time wasted or horizons widened. They can annoy us or enrich us, get under our skin or give us a shot in the arm. Monopolize our minutes or spice our schedules, depending on our attitude toward them." - William Ward

We're all got interruptions going on around us.  From technology to kids to co-workers, it's hard to find an uninterrupted stretch of time.  But like so much else in life, it's how we choose to react that matters most.  We can fly off the handle, complain constantly, or just get back to what we were doing before the interruption.  Granted after the 10th interruption in a row, it's pretty challenging to not get frustrated.  But we do get to choose and what we choose has an energy attached to it that we feel and we send out to those around us, especially to little ones who feel it and model what we adults do.  So choose rather than react don't let your interruptions run your life.
