Feels like nostalgic wistful longing.
Mental shake of myself.
Ok. This is reality. Jesus has made a way, and I’m gonna find it.
We soldier on.
Ok what was the question? Oh. What things are not living up to my expectations?
Ummm. I need you guys here. The Church. 💛
A shorter list would be What HAS lived up to my expectations. My relationship with God. No blowing sunshine here.
I was once given some good advice:
Never pin your hope to something that can be taken away.
I really try to follow that.
That might be why I am struggling with my feelings about my parenting stuff!
I think it’s easy to get confused, because they came out of MY body and hold a piece of MY heart. So I think I should be able to make THAT work. But once they hit puberty and start to separate…all bets are off 💔🌻😌
