Today’s prompt (which has nothing to do with grippered footie pajamas. disappointing. hehe.): Welcome
I want you to feel like you are meant to be here. When you flip through the pages of this blog, or my posts on Twitter, or my Instagram feed, I want you to feel like you can kick your feet up and feel welcomed into this life that I’m sharing.
When I feel most welcome, it’s when I know other people are being real. When they aren’t afraid to show their flaws because they know that the cracks are just places where God’s light can shine through. I want you to feel that way when you’re here – that you see a true reflection of my life. An honest one, where instead of always sharing the perfect smiling happy child, I tell you stories of melt downs and failures so you can feel like you aren’t alone.
I am nowhere near perfect, and I hope that makes you feel like you can come over, put your feet on the coffee table and snuggle into the sofa for some giggles, chocolate, and true life. Because nothing says “welcome” to me like authenticity.
