Awwwww. What else ?????

So, my week gto off to a sucky start. : ( One of my twins boys decided (we still have not figured out WHY) to take a brick to the windows of our neighbors car. Not one window, not two windows, but three windows. Yep, you read that right. Three (3) count'em with me now 1,2,3;   the front windshield, driver and passenger side windows. I completely fell apart when I saw the damage. Hopefully I can figure out how to post pics soon so you can share in my misery. After that, I'm afraid to face the rest of the week.

what's my deal????

I feel like I'm living someone Else's life. I find myself wondering if I come off as a judgemental, self-absorbed, holier-than-thou, washed up Prom Queen who never really relinquished the sash and tiara. Goodness, I certainly hope not. Each day it seems that I am reminded not to compare myself to others , but to strive for a deeper, more committed relationship with the savior. And then ....it happens, someone will not so subtly tell me of some occurrence that surely points to said persons lack of salvation,they can't possibly be saved cause they listen to secular music, have tattoos, have different political affiliations,etc....and the LIST goes on and on and on for DAYS!!!!!! I want to yell from the rooftops , PEOPLE WAKE UP, IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU AND YOUR BELIEFS/VALUES!!!!! We as people/nation need to get back to reading the original rule book and employing those rules. not the ones we have learned, and tweaked to fit the culture of the day.

This Parenting Journey

What a long, tear filled, strange, trip raising a "tweenage" girl is. I am SO convinced that it will be no small miracle for me to survive this journey with my sanity, hair and good working nerves. I have to remind myself almost every hour that I am not walking this walk alone. The Lord does not give you anymore more than you can bear right???? Sometimes I question this idea too. I was so not designed to be a girls mom. Since I 'm not a "girly-girl" , I often come up empty when it comes to relating to my girl who is now a converted tom boy. She used to ENJOY dirt and bugs and all things dirty. Now she is prim and proper and discovering that creature called BOYS!!!! Imagine my angst ; ) ! Yes, this will be a long , tear filled, strange, trip trip. I guess I have to just buckle up and hang on for the ride. : )
