Howdy. Hope everyone is doing well today! 

My husband is always asking me to open things for him because he says I put lids on WAAAAY too tight!  When he always reminds me, unfortunately, of former school days. I can't tell you how many times I heard a schoolmate say "you have big hands for a girl." It was always such a delight to hear. (Note the sarcasm there..)

I may not have petite hands, (or petite anything for that matter) but I mean...they never looked like they belonged on a Yeti or something! I recall being so embarrassed and trying to hide them as much as I possibly could. It's just another one of those seemingly minor things that you just never forget. It can (as I have said before) totally shape the way you think of yourself. I always tried to treat everyone as kind as I wanted to be treated, even if they were, well...jerks. It just doesn't always end up fair. It's okay, though. It always made me happy to be a friendly gal who cared for others. I wouldn't change that. I just have a hard time understanding how people can be so hurtful (on purpose!) with their words. I can't tell you how many times I have thought about just how grateful I am that social media wasn't around when I was in school. I possibly would not have been here to type this little ol' blog.

Anyway...just a little tidbit of my insecurity stories for today. As they say, kindness sure goes a long way. 

I would also like to say....speaking of kindness...I was so blessed to have met two super kind folks this past weekend. Mama and Papa Joyful, y'all are truly a treasure! 


Sending a hug to anyone that needs it!
