So as I look at people's pictures that they upload to facebook, I would be lying if I said I wasn't envious. Yes, it is one of the deadly sins.....and maybe envious isn't the right word, but I'm not sure what is. I see the pictures of birthday parties and play dates and I want it. I want it more than you could ever know. I just want our lives to to be normal. Now, I realize that even though the pictures look nice and everyone is having fun...it doesn't mean that all is well and that their life is "normal." What IS normal anyway, right? I am very thankful for what God has given me, and I love my family very much. But I so badly want to go to the grocery store without fear of a meltdown. I want to hear my children argue...yes....that is normal....right? I want to get in the car on a whim without thinking about whether he my son can handle it. I want to go to restaurants and let him order off of the kiddie menu. THAT is what I mean when I say I want normal. I realize my life may never be that way, but a girl can dream can't she?
