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.
Thanks for sharing others’ blogs! I enjoy visiting Melodee Langworthy’s blog (http://melodeelangworthy.typepad.com/). She co-taught a class with Danelle Johnson at CKU Chicago several years back & is just a good soul!!!
Thank you for sharing about the project. I really appreciate it. I also visited Angie’s blog. I was moved to tears.
