Human Beings Aren’t So Bad…

Those of you who know me, understand the above sentence.  For those of you who don’t know.  I can be quite frank at times.  I have a tendency to tell it like it is, I’ve gotten better and pray for more wisdom in this area. 

I have learned to tolerate people, I even like a few.  I have learned acceptance, not everyone is going to do what I want them to do or what I think is “right”. 

I have learned that if I can’t deal with folks with grace, I need to put space between me and that person.  It’s not about the other person, it’s about me and the peace I search for in my life. 

So tonight after watching The Bucket List, putting up my Christmas tree, and sharing a day of shopping with my wonderful husband.  I decided to search the internet for people I wish I knew in real life.

The first is a no brainer….Angie.  Why Angie you ask?  This woman took a broken heart and reached out and helped so many other women experiencing similar situations.  This woman has shared her heart, faith, family and hope with me thru her blog and I am thankful women like her exist.  You can read about all of the “friends” I have in my life because of Angie’s blog on my page Bring The Rain Friends.  These women will make you thankful you are a woman!  Angie first and foremost has made me realize that my relationship with God is going to be whatever I put into it, if I’m searching and learning then I’m growing, if I’m not then I’m struggling.

I know a thing or two about husbands.  (Snicker)  For the record I have a good husband, but it hasn’t always been that way.  I can’t imagine any husband I know coming up with The Mother Letter Project.  I have gone to this blog a few times and just always have the same feeling, “WOW.”  I also wonder if he has a brother, always looking for a husband for Melissa.

Do you wonder what it would be like to be away from your children?  I stop by Justin’s blog to see his cool pictures, but mostly to “feel his heart”.  It’s refreshing to see a Godly man, serving our country, missing his wife and children and counting his days until he is home where he belongs.  Thanks Justin!

Nie Nie I am a new fan of this blog.  I think it’s because I love her red lipstick, I don’t have the nerve to wear red lipstick these days.  I am pretty sure the bigger draw is being a part of such a love between two sisters.  CJane is her sister’s blog, and I miss the relationship I had with my sister.  I pray for this family.

If you read this far and you have a blog that touches you please share it..I’m always looking for a few new friends.

About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......
