A No Picture Post

I love, love, love blogging.  And reading blogs.  And looking at pictures on blogs.  But to be honest, while reading some of your blogs, I tend to wonder to myself, “Geez Louise!  Does nothing every go wrong for you guys?”  (Not that I hope things go wrong for you guys, but sometimes I feel kinda outta place that things do go wrong for me frequently weekly daily.)  And then you put up a “real post” of something that’s got you all twisted up.  And for the “realness” of your blogs, I am so thankful.
So that is what I’m going to do.  For the first time ever, I’m going to put up a no picture, tell it all, post.
Sometimes you just have a bad day.  And for me, today was not a great one due to some miscommunication.  It had me questioning efforts and wondering if it was even worth it.  But as I was praying about my reaction to this situation, I remembered the verse in the bible that says to be thankful for your trials.  Well, I’m not exactly thrilled with the outcome of this particular trial, but for one of the few times in my life, I’m pleased with how I handled the situation.  I feel like I stood my ground, while also doing the “turn the other cheek thing.”  Which once again, I ‘ain’t gonna lie… It wasn’t exactly what I’d call fun.  However, I feel like God gave me the opportunity to handle something.  And for one of the few times, I felt pretty good about how I handled it.  I know that God will bless me for my efforts, and for that I am thankful. 
So for all you people out there wondering, no my life is not perfect.  No, I am not perfect.  And no, I don’t handle everything thrown my way with a smile and a cup of coffee.  (In fact, sometimes I pitch fits, name call, and cry…. Okay, okay, okay.  So I did cry today.)    But I hope that if you were wondering all of these things, that you now realize, nope!  She’s just a regular ‘ole gal like me!  Whew!! ;)
Happy Monday!  With Love, Me

I think most people would probably agree with you about the blogging world. While it is wonderful, it can definitely leave you feeling jealous, wondering why everyone else's husband, baby, house, job, etc seem so perfect. I have to be honest and say that I think I remind myself DAILY that I am blessed and have no reason to be jealous of other people. Sure, I think we all have things we wish we could change, but I have so much to be thankful for! It is important to remember that EVERY ONE has things they don't talk about on blogs-- marriage or financial trouble, infertility, faith struggles, etc.

I think your blog is well-rounded and honest, and I always enjoy reading it! :)
