Welcome to Confession Wednesday! I believe that sometimes admitting our behaviors is the first step in correcting them…or laughing at them…either way…here’s what I am confessing to this week:
I love sending out Christmas cards. I feel so blessed that I have so many people in my life that I love. For those who live far away, the pictures on the card tell a story about us… they serve as a reminder of what we look like… they show how much our son has grown… they send a Christmas wish of merriment.
But, I think that sometimes our Christmas cards tell a fairytale story… or the story that we want everyone to believe. Please don’t mistake my family’s Christmas card pictures for what our everyday life looks like. Our pictures tell the story of a picture-perfect family. Although we are in-love each other… we certainly are not perfect. We have to say we are sorry, we cry, we hurt, we disappoint, and sometimes we struggle with everyday life. Even though my pictures don’t depict those struggles… they are there.
So, here’s my confession for this Wednesday…
My goal is to continually be as happy as my family’s Christmas card pictures resemble.
