My sweet hubby announced that he had lost more weight. Did he say more? I tried to sound happy, smiled, and said, “That’s great honey!” And I grumbled in my head that I can’t seem to give up the hot fudge or the ice cream. My skirts are tighter and summer is a ‘coming.
Why is it so hard sometimes to rejoice with others when they announce their good news? It’s easy to put on a smile but I want my heart to sing with others when they share their newest goal. I want to stand up and applaud.
When I’m feeling
grumpy insecure, I need to go back and look at what is important in my life. My family and friends, my faith; all make my life richer. I want to be the encouraging friend and the cheerleader wife. Choose to laugh with them.
Don’t call me tonight, we’ll be out shopping for clothes and that’s okay.
