Well, not for me anyway.
At least three times in the last three days I've be encountered with a trying situation and in response, reacted poorly. But it's only after the fact, after I've shot my mouth off or been rude or something, that I realize, "Oooooh, that was a test of my patience, wasn't it?"
Heavenly Father is a tricky one, he is.
And currently my grade is an F.
