Nakedness

I've Worked Hard For This....
I’ve Worked Hard For This….

While he won’t admit it, his children are a lot more like him than he thinks. For example, Sweetness is on the couch, as I write this, naked, playing his iPad. No, Merill doesn’t play naked on his iPad anymore, but it is hubby’s lack of modesty that makes Sweetness like his father. Merrill’s, “I don’t care, we’ve all got one” attitude is present in the little ones, and I am humorously reminded of the boy I met almost 23 years ago, who said, “What? It’s just a Peter”..Just a Peter indeed….sigh…these babies never stood a chance. Adam and Eve ain’t got nothing on these two.

Look, I don’t have a lot of time here. Church is just around the corner, and in addition to editing this document I have to get the babies dressed. He, Merrill, acts like it’s no big deal, but then when he has to chase a toddler whose screaming, “Help me”….he gets a little annoyed too, but it’s HIS fault. The ability to let it all hang out, without a care in the world is what frustrates me on a daily bases. I mean, if HE wants to be arrested for indecency then so be it, but why curse another generation to nakedery? Don’t they have enough against them already? Duchess will strip down, within 3 minutes of leaving her in Sunday School and FIGHT anyone who tries to make her redress. Sweetness will strip within 3 min of arising for the day. He will then walk his naked ass to the heater, where he will stand until he has sufficiently roasted his booty…..I don’t think any of that came from me. I am a very demure, body shy woman.

I gotta go. Sweetness only just now dressed, and Merrill is chasing Duchess around the kitchen trying to get her from a state of nakedness to a stated of decency, but decency really is a very subjective term. I say let her go….LOL….she’s screaming, “I don’t wanna dress”. She doesn’t relent as easily as Sweetness. I don’t feel like we need to put too much work into her, I say we let the Sunday School teachers deal with her, that’s their job anyway. If you see Sweetness or Duchess naked, please don’t judge me, know that I tried, failed, and I just don’t care anymore. If you see Merrill naked, you’re welcome, but please don’t judge me on that either. If his mother, (whose job it was anyway), didn’t correct him, I’m not going to get anywhere with him either. 1st World Problems friends…..I don’t really care if this family dresses or not…..forget you…if you do. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today.

Having an Attitude of Gratitude.

I try to remember that the Glory is not for me, but for Him I serve.
I try to remember that the Glory is not for me, but for Him I serve.

Having an Attitude of Gratitude is necessary if one wants to be the next Carrie Brawshaw (smile). I had a friend who complimented me on one of my articles, and I told her, “Oh, it wasn’t my best work”. Well, when you compare my work to the likes of Hemmingway, or Collins (may she rest in peace), it wasn’t, but the beauty of writing is the more one does is, the better one gets. Why I earth would I write off the ones who compliment me? We remember the criticisms don’t we? Realizing I had done this, I had to ask myself, “Why do we deny ourselves praise”?

It’s a false sense of humility that won’t allow us to accept compliments. In reality, we’re doing nothing more than denying “our” God His Due. If you’ve ever sacrificed ANYTHING for your craft, you deserve the praise when offered. You deserve it, because you’ve EARNED IT. It becomes obnoxious when you do it ONLY for the purposes of receiving praise. If you’re proud of what you’ve accomplished, it’s acceptable to receive the compliment, then send it back out…in your creation. By accepting the Affirmation offered, you’re acknowledging the worthiness of the person giving the compliment. Remember, by denying them their say in your work, you are denying them, and frankly, success is achieved one person, one notice, at at time. It doesn’t make you less humble to accept a “job well done”  it makes you grateful…and remember….to be grateful is to be humble. Okay, gotta go. I slept in a recliner all night. Pediatric Asthma has reared it’s ugly head, but I’m glad and grateful to do it. Duchess slept like a baby….it was worth it. I got some kinks to work out. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Wednesday.
