I have often heard that God will not give you what you can not handle. Something along those lines. This is why I'm fairly certain that little kid was somehow involved in a mix up at the hospital, even though he never left my sight and looks very much like the infant that came out of me and had the right bracelets on and everything.
I don't know.
Maybe you overestimated my abilities? I mean, I know you know everything and made all of us or whatever, but you do have a lot going on. If there was an error somewhere along the way (might not even be your fault, I'm sure you delegate a lot), the right thing to do would be to work out a solution.
I do want to keep him. I really like his name and he is definitely cute enough to be mine. I love the snuggly stuff too. Maybe you could work on some sort of behavior modification for him? Have a talk with him? Exorcise his demons?
I'm sure you'll think of something. I just wanted to bring it to your attention that either people were spreading lies about this whole "God only gives you what you can handle" thing or that there was some sort of mix up along the way in my situation.
While we're here, I want to apologize about the whole church thing. I even put it on my Yahoo calendar, so every Saturday night it's like you are there saying, "Ashley, I know you're not going to church tomorrow but wanted to remind you that you should be."
I know before I had kids it was okay. You and I had our own personal relationship and I talked with you plenty and knew you were cool with me not going. But lately I do more of using you and your Son's name in vain than talking to you and now it is painfully obvious that I'm raising heathens (sorry about Big Kid talking through Mary's soliloquy Christmas Eve before last) and that they need the fear of God in them. Because the fear of Mom isn't doing the trick.
I'd tell you I'll start going but you and I both know that I'd be lying. Sorry. I suck. You already know that though. Maybe you could find another way to scare the kids for me?
Thanks so much! You're doing an awesome job these days, by the way, I just need a little more help.
