you can't please everyone....so ya?

asher's new "converse" shoes
his uncle sent him from florida
for Christmas! how cute are they...
you can't please everyone so what do you do????


a friend and i were recently having this conversation. she expressed how much was expected of her that day but all she wanted to do was CHILL....


today that same friend called me...she noticed right away i was busy but proceeded to talk another 15 minutes and seemed offended when i said i had to go.....


it occured to me that i'd done essentially the right thing but still put myself somewhere in there....and more importantly God too! she needed to "vent" about some offenses she'd incurred. i told her that maybe God wasn't able to give her what her heart desired in that situation because she was in offense over not receiving it already. i really needed to eat at that point (diabetic if you don't know and VERY cranky when i need to be fed, lol!). but i gave her some time anyway. she didn't have much interest at that point in what was going on with me so i just listened. but then i had to go.


i couldn't PLEASE her completely, so i had to please myself...or feed as the case was. my point is....

DO YOUR BEST, AVOID GOSSIP, GIVE A LITTLE MORE THAN YOU THINK YOU CAN ORIGINALLY AND THEN MOVE ON WITH THE PEACE OF KNOWING YOU DID YOUR BEST...even if it didn't meet someone else's expectations.....blessings...
