"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."
I know that day comes - at some point in my parenting career (if you call it that). I never expected it to hurt or thought it would happen. Oh, I certainly don't think my kids mean to hurt me or mean it disrespectfully. They're good, loving kids, and I know in my heart, that someday their own kids will probably do the same, but I don't want them to have that part of their heart rips feeling. Maybe I'm just being oversensitive. Most of the time I laugh it off and say it's my job...
To be honest, I think most kids feel that their parents embarrass them at one point or another. I was too terrified to tell mine, but I remember thinking it a few times. Can't really remember the reason other than I was young.
You'll probably tell me it's what happens when you have kids. It's when your kids tell other people that you embarrass them. It's worse yet, when they say it on FB. For an instant I was tempted to remind them of the times they embarrassed us with those rare public tantrums they had when they were little.... But I haven't.
Just really makes me wonder how many times I've embarrassed God with my actions and yet He still loves me. At least He doesn't blog about it, but then again, there is that small, not to quiet voice... I'm so thankful for His forgiveness and love.
