A Salute To Those Who Keep Me In Check

20 Feb

Being a grown up – it’s not so easy, is it?  There are times when I would like to throw an all out hissy fit, complete with dropping to the ground and kicking and screaming.  There are times when someone treats me or someone I love unfairly, and I want to retaliate.  I don’t do it, though, partly because I know better (my mama and daddy raised me better than to act a fool) and partly because if I did – there’d be someone there to tell me to “get over myself” and get on with it.

I thank God for those people in my life.  The people who will stand up for me no matter what, but will also quickly tell me to get my butt off my shoulders if need be.

If you don’t have people like that in your life, my suggestion is for you to find some.  Because you are making the rest of us want to punch you in the face.
