All That Glitters Is Not Gold

I know that sometimes the grass always seems greener on the other side, but there’s nothing wrong with dull grass. I mean, come on, the one with greener grass probably has a lot more, uh hum, “fertilizer”…

Just because someone seems put together well, doesn’t mean that they everything right. They could be totally broke and hiding it. Their marriage could be on the rocks. Their child could have a drug problem. They could be suffering from spousal abuse.

There are a lot of people out there who are really great at pretending. I know, I’ve been there. You don’t want anyone to know that you have eternal struggles and that sometimes you don’t know how to handle them. Most women hide it and never share it. But I’ve come to the conclusion, that if more women would talk about and share their daily struggles, we just may find that it’s a normal part of life. That women face a whole lot of difficulties, simply due to the fact that we are women. We have issues such as PMS, low serotonin levels, thyroid trouble, estrogen trouble, hormones, etc…

We are not alone. And God isn’t going to make us suffer alone either. He gives us friends, family, and sisters in Christ to help take the load off.

So if your struggling with life, being a mother, wife, or a woman in general, know that we at Sticky Hands are here for you and are willing to talk to you and pray with you. You have a friend in us! 🙂
