I want Sugar!
Well, dear friends, it's been over a week since my last blog. I'm sorry if you are waiting on a package from me... it's going out TODAY, I promise!!!
I need some Sugar! or hugs or love or what ever...I need my peeps!
I've had a very difficult 10 days. Lots going on that I really can't share so publicly, but things have been a bit rough.
I've shared a little about some of my struggles and I have quickly been thrown into some new situations that I have to deal with.
I have found myself to be quite strong and able to handle some of the things that 9 months ago would have taken me out, so there is improvement!
It's hard to share this with the world, but hey, why not share the reality of being a pastor's wife? If we only knew the real stories of others, I think it would be a shocking surprise to most people.
I've chosen to be open about the reality of my life. My husband and I are real people and we don't buy into the "fake it 'till you make it" idea. I think that's kind of dangerous because it can become something of a crutch for people who really should look at their circumstances in an objective and realistic way. On the other hand, I also see the value in postponing feelings, etc. until a more appropriate time and place to really deal with them in a safe and healthy environment.... does that make sense?
Aaaannnywhoodle, so this week has been a bit of a "testing of the waters" for me as I re-enter the world of...well, people! Things got testy.... already.
It doesn't take long to make people hate you, all you have to do create some small, tiny change for them that they don't like.... and ....BOOM! You've got yourself a group of folks who think you are the devil! :0)
Oh, and I *LOOOVE* it! I loooove being screamed at, accused, being called a liar, hung up on...it's greeeaat!! Especially when it happens in public, in front of other people, that's even better!
(I HOPE YOU KNOW, I'M BEING SARCASTIC!!!)
Okay, okay, I'm gonna stop because you're gonna drag this dumb story out of me if you keep this up.... *wink*
My friends and I are thinking of writing a book, I think you might love it! All of our stories. It would be juicy, too! hee hee hee
So, I'm trying today to look back at my priorities... the things that bring me joy. My family, my children, my home, CUPCAKES, writing my blog...sharing with you, much prayer, MORE CUPCAKES, reading scriptures and books that help, creating...crafts, MORE CUPCAKES.... (hence, my double chin...)
I want to shout out to Ann of Keeping Up With the Tatums, she's my girl. We had a little swappy poo. I saw this fantastic altered card on her blog and asked if she was going to sell it...she said it's for another swap, but she could make me one like it with the "SUGAR" quotes...
Well, she ended up sending me that very card, AND I LOVE IT!!! Isn't it adorable?!?
Thank you ANN! You're a DOLL!!
Also, just wanted to show you these SA-WEET taggies I got from PurdyGirlStuff.etsy.com.
Made from old quilt fabric scraps... they are just my colors!!
Well, thanks for letting me vent... I'm feeling much better now.
Blogging can do that to you...
