Today I went to church as per normal. I took the kids with me as the husband was working so he couldn’t use the time to spend with them. I hate to take time away from him… but Summer Sunday School is about to start and I think that would be much more beneficial for my kids than sitting in McDonalds with their weekend Dad while he tries to pretend all is okay. Plus my girls really enjoy dressing up and going to church. My son, who could use far more church time than the rest of us… always tries to find an excuse for why he can't go… that of course NEVER works.
As for my title today, I had been having a hard time lately. It’s getting harder knowing that my finances are non-existent… but today when leaving church my Pastor hugged me and whispered in my ear “I know it’s been hard, but it’s going to be alright”. I started to cry. Because it’s like he saw everything I’ve been through in the last 3 weeks. He could be reading my blog, but I seriously doubt it. Even so, the words spoke volumes to me. And I do know it will be alright. God has made a way out of no way thus far. He will continue to work great things in my life going forward. Now if I could just stop cussing full stop. Because sometimes… I have such a potty mouth. And that is the hardest thing to stop doing. It’s like I have Tourette's. I will drop an F-bomb with a quickness when things are extremely upsetting. Now once I stop doing that. Maybe people will see the new me. I tried saying Shut The Front Door the other day… my kids laughed for a solid 20 minutes. I thought they would never stop laughing. LOL!!
Before I do the outfit… I will leave you with this. As women we sometimes fish for compliments. You have to be careful what you ask. I asked a long time friend how I looked today, assuming the answer would be flattering… I was sadly mistaken. He told me I needed to exercise and my dress would look better. Deflated that balloon quickly. Won’t be fishing for compliments anytime soon… LMAO… that’s what I get… should’ve know better. Do you fish for compliments when you think you look great? Have you ever had the air let out of your head as quickly as I did? What do you think of this Dressbarn dress that I’ve had FOREVER?!

Below see how my girls looked for church… Mari didn’t want to smile in the photos so her sister held her face into a smile… I thought that was adorable. My son is a teenager and wanted nothing to do with having his photo taken.
