For you

So I have the plague...


This time its trying to kill me.

Along with my kids. But that's a different story. Different but not unusual...right?

Anyways - I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out a good enough For You Friday post. And nothing was cutting it. This cold medicine, plus this new medicine? definitely killing major amount of brain cells.

Every idea I had was crap.

"ooo...I could talk about..."

Crap. They were such bad ideas that I even forgot what they were. But then? It hit me.

Whatever I put? Would be good enough. It doesn't hafta be absolutely perfect. Why? Cause I'm trying.

I'm trying to help you guys.

And thats what I want you to go away with here.

Just try. It'll be good enough. Who cares if its perfect? Who cares what it looks like? Who cares?

There are so many lies that you can be lead to believe because of this...this...this...crazy.

"I can't do it."

"No one cares if I live."

"Why should I go? No one will miss me if I don't go."

"Why should I get out of bed?"

"I am a horrible mom"
don't make me come after you

Just try. Get out of bed. Go to that party. Call someone for a lunch...there is always someone who cares about you.

And for the record?

You are the best mom out there. Yup, each and every single one of you.

You may think "she doesn't know anything."

But I'm right there next to you. Just trying.

Trying to be a good enough mom.

Trying to be a good enough wife.

Trying to be a good enough daughter.

Trying to be a good enough Christian.

Trying to be a good enough human being.

Just try.

Never give up fighting. Just fight. Just try.

You can do it.


  1. This is beautiful. And you're absolutely right. We are all good moms, good wives, good human beings so long as we are trying. That's it. It's not what we've accomplished or let fall to the wayside, it's our efforts to be better each day, to be happier each day. That's what matters.

  2. Nobody has to be perfect; trying to be the best we can be is a-ok!

  3. I am sorry you're sick again.
    I'll send my evil gallbladder over there to kick ass...
    You're right we don't have to be perfect. There is no such thing...well except for cheesecake. That's perfect.
    Ps. Are you still up for writing for me? I know you're sick so you don't have to worry about it of you can't promise ;)

  4. You stated it perfectly. All we can do is fight and try, one day at a time, moment by moment. Love you!

  5. Each day is beautiful no matter how messed it all seemed. The best thing that matters is when we keep on fighting each day. Never give up. Thanks for the words of wisdom.


people who think I'm awesome say...
