Who I am

My brother has been in town the past couple of days and asked if we’d like to take Ava on a boat ride. It was a gorgeous day again yesterday so after work we went to meet him. Ava got to use the life jacket he got her!DSCN9788She wasn’t so sure about going fast, but she did enjoy driving!DSCN9789 I do believe her absolute favorite part of the excursion was throwing rocks into the water after we got back to shore!

Riding in the boat was a good way to unwind after a kind of rotten day. I was informed of some things that have been said about me behind my back – things that were hurtful to hear because they were untrue. I know I’m not perfect. I’ve never claimed to be and never will be. But I do strive to be a good person. I try to treat people the way I would like to be treated. I feel like my character was totally trashed and it really hurt my feelings. However, after mulling it over I decided it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter because I know the truth. It also doesn’t matter because God too knows the truth. Yes, I hate that this happened but I can’t change it. I can however change my reactions to it. And instead of being angry, I’m praying for the person who felt the need to do this.

I’m sick of being concerned with what other people might think of me. As long as I am living in a way that Jesus is proud of, and as long as my family is happy with me, that’s all that matters. People are always going to talk about others. This isn’t the first time someone has talked badly about me and I’m sure it won’t be the last. People who truly know me know my heart and know that I am a good person. I am who I am – and my desire is to please my Lord and my family. If I’m doing that, then I don’t have to worry. So there ya have it – it’s going to take a lot more than false gossip to break me!

Phew! Feels good to unload all of that! Now then – I’m off to watch my last episode of Ugly Betty ever! That show met its end way too soon! Tomorrow’s Friday and this weekend we get to celebrate my sweet hubby’s birthday – life is good!!!!


  1. Ava is super cute in her life jacket. :o) I'm so sorry that you had such a bad day and someone did that to you. I only know you through Brandon and bloggy world, but I can tell that you are a wonderful person and there is no way that anything bad said about you could be true. I do think you are handling it wonderfully! I always think about how I should have reacted, after I have already reacted. Ha!! Not the best time, but I'm working on it. Have a great weekend girl!!!!!!

  2. Love the boat pictures. She is so adorable.

    I'm sorry you are having trouble with people talking. It sounds like you have a great attitude about it though. You are a wonderful person. hang in there!

  3. Amen, sister. I only wish I had that good of an attitude when bad things happen to me. You're an inspiration, and one of the sweetest people I know. Hang in there!

  4. oh sweet Sarah, you tell me who it was, and I will give them a word or two!! seriously though, so are one of the most sweetest, caring, thoughtful girl's i have EVER not met, and they are not worth it if they can't see that! xoxoxoxo!!!!

    p.s. ava is so cute in her little life jacket --your summer will be so much fun with that cutie!
