A dose of reality

I follow several "big-time" bloggers, Mama Laughlin, I heart Organizing, Young House Love. I know our blog doesn't even come close to these guys.
But they have pretty big shoes to fill. And I feel like a failure, a lot of the time.

When I blog about an organizing project or a craft we made, I show you a tiny snapshot of my life.
You are seeing what I want you to see. I guarantee that is not a complete picture of what my life really looks like. I am currently surrounded by backpacks, John Deere combines and dirty clothes. My husband is emptying the dishwasher and filling it because no one did it yesterday. We fed our kids broasted chicken  & fried shrimp and fries for supper. I still haven't put our Easter decorations away. I have at least 3 baskets of laundry to fold and put away along with several loads that still need washed. I had a really bad day at work today. I have a fairly high stress job, although I absolutely love it.
I know that I see these other bloggers, friends on Facebook, people on Instagram with seeminly perfect lives. They don't have them. Just like I don't. And while my mess may be messier than theirs, it also may not be.
We have to remember, you don't know where anyone is is coming from, where they have been or where they are going.

  1. Everyone struggles with their own issues! I would saying producing three beautiful children, a degree from a private school graduating summa cum laude, holding down a fulltime job and raising those three beautiful children, volunteering, and keeping a healthy marriage makes you very successful!
