I can smile because of the little smiles that I got all day from my 4 boys. They smile at me and told me they love me even though I look the way I look in the picture. What you don't see is that I may have cried at least once today. The house may be a mess with toys scattered. One thing you don't see but I see everyday are happy boys. They are happy because though we may have tough days I still smile and my smile makes everything better for them.
I used to think I had to look great everyday on the outside but as I've grown, I have learned I don't have to look a certain way on the outside. It is what is on the inside that counts. "Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control"(Galatians 5:22-23). God looks at our hearts not our faces, clothing, etc.
So this is the real me behind all of my posts. I hope I have inspired a reader through this post.
Always remember to have faith, hope, and a lot of love!
