I used to think I knew everything about everything…until I was no longer a teenager.
I used to think I knew everything about marriage…until I got married.
I used to think I knew everything about parenting…until I had kids.
I used to think people that left their grocery carts in the middle of the parking lot were terrible citizens…until I brought two kids with me to the grocery store and parked no where close to the cart return.
I used to think stay at home moms had an easy job….until I was one.
I used to run several miles a day…until I didn’t
I used to watch One tree hill…. I have no excuse for this.
I used to kill “impossible to kill” houseplants… now I teach gardening classes.
I used to think tree huggers were weirdoes…now I guess I am one.
I used to think 30 was old.
I used to think a brushed out perm, braces and glamor shots were a good idea
When I look back realizing how much I have learned in my 32 years I realize I still have MUCH more to learn. We all learn from our mistakes, adventures, and success.
Mother Teresa said “When you judge people you have no room left to love them.”
May I show grace because so much grace has been shown to me. May I never judge without walking a mile in their shoes.
People grow, learn and change. Be encouraged to LEARN from generations before you. Give yourself and others grace as we figure out this ride called life. And NEVER get glamor shots with a brushed out perm
