My Easter was great (I hope yours was too) but holidays are always a little tough (each one is getting better and better though) after a divorce.
Right before we went to church I had my dad come outside and take our Easter Pictures and on the way to church I started to get really sad because last Easter there was a dad, a mom and a kiddo in the Easter Pictures. This year, there was just a mom and her kiddo (might I add, a ridiculously adorable kiddo).
For the next few hours I was distracted with a million other things like chasing Brooker around while trying to pay attention at church and I didn’t think much about it until I got home and put her down for her nap. I uploaded the pictures on my computer to start writing a Happy Easter post and I just stared at our ‘family picture’ for awhile.
I realized that just because my family picture is not what I had expected/hoped/worked for/dreamed for so many years it to be doesn’t mean it isn’t perfect.
We really just have to make the best of whatever our picture is. Every single person has some sort of trial going on or they are missing someone or they are struggling with mental or physical pain… We just have to look at what our picture is at the moment with the right perspective.
I don’t know where I’m going with this but I just feel the need to share my ‘aha’ moments with you.
I guess what I am trying to say is: Whatever your picture may be right now—> decide that it is great one. We are the ones that make up our own definition of perfect:)
This is my perfect.
