because you can't really communicate exactly what's in your heart.
I felt good about what I wrote because it felt nice to get all that I was thinking out and feel good about working hard to raise my boys and I got some nice feedback from friends and then later tonight I started to think of some close friends and family who I know work and hope that they would read my post for what I meant it to be and not take offense....
and then Thomas was like, "well of course you're going to hurt people's feelings if you write that..."
and I was like, "really??" because I am thick enough to think that people will see it for what it meant to me... but...
ugh. Hurting people I love was not on the agenda... in fact, there was no agenda other than to work out my own feelings on the subject and hopefully help others in the my position to feel encouraged too.
To every friend or family member who works: I felt good about writing this FOR ME and now that I go back and read it and talk about it with Thomas I feel like I probably just hurt a bunch of people's feeling instead even though no one commented that I did... but still. I kind of want to delete it all but you have probably already read it and if you are offended... Don't Be.
How lame am I? It's hard to say what you feel for yourself and not come off sounding like you are speaking for the whole world.
I meant what I said, but didn't mean it in a point-the-finger at anyone but me kind of way.
I hope no one was hurt, because it was a good pep talk for me and I think you are great.
