Wasn't Jesus the original hippie? With his sandals, dress and kind, compassionate, tender, joyful nature? What a loaded word that is! I am oftentimes called a hippie – in some ways, I am, some not. I am an Older Mom with Young Kids and Older Kids, Four in All – Remarried, Striving to make a Step Family with Love and God's help.
Mean. Bitchy. Lazy. Undisciplined. Opportunistic.
Sloth with dirty calloused unattractive feet.
Incapable. Hippie Liberal.
Bad … mother. … housewife.
The above are ‘truths’ in my ex-husband’s and my current husband’s eyes.
I will not tell you which said which (or if both said both.)
But neither started with those ‘truths’.
‘Truth’ is a relative term.
We all come to it with our own unique backgrounds and current agendas.
I can choose to share with you all the truly horrible things that prove I am far, far from perfect and have made many mistakes along the way.
Or I can choose to share with you my small daily victories.
I am less interested in your ‘truth’ than I am in how each day and each interaction you treat your enemies, your friends, your children, your step-children, the neighbor who lives next door.
That is your truth.
And each day is a new day.
So our word for Five Minute Friday this week? Let’s make it: TRUE. Because I need your true stories. Just like I hope you need mine. – See more at: http://lisajobaker.com/#sthash.L44lTL1K.dpuf
