Perfectly Imperfect...




I don't know about y'all, but I am tired.


I am tired of people telling me that I need to change to fit some mold.


I'm not thin enough, I'm not tall enough, my hair is not the right color, length or style...


My teeth aren't straight, or perfectly white, my smile is crooked...


My clothes aren't the latest fashions, I don't drive a nice new car, my house isn't perfectly decorated and you are likely to find dishes in the sink.


We may not take over the top vacations, or have a lot of financial wealth...


But


I am perfectly imperfect.


I am healthy.


I am alive and breathing and moving.


I am just right as I am right this moment.


I have a husband who adores me.


I have a daughter who thinks I am the best mama in the whole wide world.  


I have family who loves and supports me.


I have friends who encourage and uplift me.


I have a car that gets us from point A to point Z and everywhere in between.


I have a nice house, in a nice neighborhood with friendly neighbors and is safe for my family.


We have nice, clean clothes on our backs and there is plenty of food in my house to feed my family.


We spend time as a family every single day enjoying each others company and spending quality time together.


I have everything I need.  I am content with my life as it is right this very minute.  I am happy to be where I am right now.  I am BLESSED to be in this life.
