Being Real

Shane's cousin and his girlfriend brought their newborn baby over to see us a week or so ago. As we were talking, the girlfriend mentioned as an aside, "Yeah, they all say 'What a perfect family' but I knew that wasn't exactly right." I was a little baffled-not sure who sees us as perfect nor exactly what impression she has of us...

However, we are very real. Today was just one of those days. Nothing is really wrong, but the frustrations of life kinda piled up today. You know, just the junk. And it's hot. One of those digital thermometers in town said it was 109 degrees at 1:30 this afternoon.

So, being on the edge of tears all day, and for no real good reason, this play list was very soothing to my soul. Thanks Vicki :)

So sorry you had a bad day...We can cry together...I've done that more than enough this week...no verge to it...just spilled out. Don't you love brutal honesty...kinda hurts sometimes. I don't know any family that is perfect...boy we sure all have our warts...sometimes we just don't air them to others...no need to. But do be encouraged...you have a wonderful family, a husband who adores you, loves the Lord, works hard, and five great girls, and a big heart...there's something to rejoice in. Have a better day today...I will try too.
