"The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else's highlight reels.
This is my highlight reel, a 2 second snapshot of a blessed life. But what you don't see is how I struggle to measure up. The way I compare myself to that girl who is everything I am not.
You don't see how I scream at my kids to wash their cereal DOWN the sink. How I always seem to have a pile of clean clothes getting wrinkled on the couch. You didn't see how I completely lost the "mother of the year" award 10 minutes before our nerf gun war. You see fun times cooking in the kitchen but you don't see the frozen pizza I burned. I work hard to make time for the little things because they are really the big things. I document the sunsets and the highlights to keep me thankful for all my blessings. But I doubt myself, I ridicule myself, I wonder what could have been. It is ridiculous to me that anyone would ever compare themselves to me the way I compare myself to them. So we should continue to document the good times as well as some bad, but just know that it is only the highlight reel!! ❤

I boiled/baked 6 dozen eggs and pulled out all the CrEAtiVe tools I had (including kool-aid packets for the dye!!) the boys spent the night and all the kids spent the day letting their creative juices FLOW!! Creative juices can be MESSY! 😳
