I don’t know about y’all, but around here… we live in real life.
Sometimes it’s beautiful. Sometimes it’s hard. Sometimes it’s messy and you just want to have a do-over.
In real life, kitchens get messy.
In real life, Mommy and Daddy get mad at one another.
In real life, children bicker and pout.
In real life, sometimes all you can do is cry.
In real life, you just feel like going back to bed…
In real life, you know what you should do, and sometimes you don’t do it.
And that’s just about how our weekend looked.
Yep, we live in real life.
But… in real life we have
We have teamwork.
We have do-overs.
We have I’m sorry.
We have kisses.
We have hugs.
We have love.
This weekend was one that was not one we wish to do over, but thankfully we all know that we are a family. We are in this for the long haul. We love each other too much to quit.
Gratefully, we do live in real life and even when things get tough… we remember that God built this family and we will do whatever it takes to live, love and laugh… here in our real life.
I love this sign (via pinterest) and I think it fits us perfectly!
