I have been just a little ray of sunshine lately, huh? I am trying to walk the walk and talk the talk friends.
Sometimes I don’t feel it. Sometimes I feel like a big ole nothin’. I sleep too much. I am not a “fine” artist. I have not created an orphanage or malaria hospital out of the country.
I have a temper. Sometimes I want to throw pencils at people. Spit wads. Sometimes I actually do sit on the rock in our front yard (which is at a four way stop that no one stops at) and I literally SHAKE MY FIST at the people in the cars. True story.
I was just listening to WBGL radio and they were discussing the comparison game that happens among moms so much. And apparently, according to them, there seems to be a peak in this at the start of school. (I think it never dips, honestly). The comparisons can bring us DOWN super quickly. I do not even look at, let alone subscribe, to parenting magazines of any sort. They bum me out. Because I don’t sit on the floor and play games with the kids. I don’t make shaped pancakes every Saturday and never will I frost a sugar cookie. I let my kids watch an ungodly amount of tv. I swear, in front of the kids. I don’t make them match their clothes and they will never look like little models. Not happening at this house.
And then I remember this. God can do anything. He created everything out of nothing, including Moi. And He will help me be awesome in my own way.
So I paint in my journal illustrationy little things…that ya’ll seem to enjoy.
I homeschool my kids and take them on field trips. I am awesome at letting them be their unique selves and celebrating that.
I take super awesome naps.
I bake really good mac and cheese.
And sometimes I keep that temper in check and smile really sweetly at people, maybe think naughty words. 🙂
God created me to be who He wanted. Who He needed me to be.
God will help me turn it around, he will keep me on the path.
Well said Martin Luther. That Martin, he was one smart dude.
