First off, I must admit the worst part of this whole finger incident is telling people how I did it. HOW on earth could I have been so dumb? WHAT was I thinking? In my head I don’t expect perfection. I am fine with the things I’m not so good at. I don’t find myself comparing me to others, I realize that some people have certain gifts and some have others. But in reality I do expect perfection. I expect me to have the perfect FHE dessert, even if I’m so tired and have so many other things in my plate that I can’t really put myself in a safe place. Anyway, it’s been a good lesson that I’m not perfect, and being whole is better than being perfect. I think it’s also let me eat a bit of humble pie — and that’s just good for digestion in general.
The second thing, I’ve been thinking a lot about a talk my Aunt (who is one of my most favorite people) gave at Women’s Conference, and I searched for it this fine morning on the Internet. I think it’s got a good message for people who are going through hard things. I’m pretty sure I’ve put it on the blog before, but here’s the link (you can click onto the MP3). Even if you only have 3 or 4 minutes, listen to the first part — it’s a good reminder that everything we go through is for our good. And that true joy really only comes after you have known the sadness. I’d encourage for you to have a listen.
And then wait with great anticipation for Photo Friday. I’ll be warmin’ up the Lightroom soon. 🙂
