I totally get it...
But actually not totally because I just have one more teensy thing to say. (And it's important so I'm going to say it- to you.)
Thank you for the comments and the emails and the conversations and all the love. Thank you. Like, thank you in the way that it doesn't even seem good enough to just say thank you. Thank you.
After we filmed that episode I spent many anxious moments wondering if it would represent the Church well. What I didn't think about was whether or not it represent us well. You. Me. All of us actually living this life. Actually having the babies and washing the dishes and wiping the bums and getting their skirts lifted up by small children in mass and loving our husbands and trying to be better in a million ways and breathing, thinking, feeling and living this life.
In the emails you sent and in the comments you left (I read and appreciated them ALL), you reminded me that I was repping you. And if I repped just one of you well, then (really) that's all I could hope for out of this. Because we are in this life together. All of us. Pulling and pushing each other along. Hair tied up in knots and reheated coffee we don't find 'til the next day. These windows into each other's worlds are special because they are little reflections of a life we already know. And they are reminders that this life is good, and that we aren't the only ones living it.
Let's keep our trains rollin. Let's keep being inspired by each other and laughing at ourselves and living this life. I think the world really needs to see it. Let's keep showing them.
