Today I want to honor my friend Robin.
She is a wonderful mother.
She is amazing and she doesn't say stupid things like, "I wish I had your life."
She recognizes the joy of her kids.
Visiting her this winter was amazing. This family enjoys every moment together. They recognize how incredibly lucky they are to be together and to have this opportunity to serve and love one another.
I get to go to concerts and movies by myself. Yippee skippy.
I make the most of the joy I can uncover in my life.
And I love Robin because she loves the grass on her side of the fence. She is grateful and joyful and she wishes that I could live on her side of the fence too.
I love that my friend's kids get to have amazing mothers. I am grateful for the blessings of my life, but let's not pretend that my life is even as remotely as rich and fulfilling as your life is.
It isn't. And Robin gets that.
