Something I've been thinking about recently... I'm very thankful for the people in my life who don't live up to my expectations. I realize that sounds ridiculous, but instead of being frustrated, I'm choosing to be thankful. There are people who I love and I will always love, no matter how many stupid decisions they make (repeatedly) because I love them for who they are, and that won't ever change. While it is certainly frustrating to have people disappoint me, I am seeing it for the first time in a new light. It's a reminder to me. If I, imperfect and limited as I am, can still love people who screw up all the time, how much more does God love me? Wow.
