If you were me...

If you were me you’d be a single mom who loves her daughter with all her heart.
If you were me, you’d know that God has always been with you, but you haven’t always been with Him.
If you were me you’d be frustrated because there never seems to be enough money.
If you me, you’d also know that God always provides for you.

If you were me, you’d wish you were married to the guy that you pray for all the time!
If you were me, you’d know that God made this house just for you.
If you were me, you’d know how hard it is to stop swearing and hope that today when you go to work, you don’t swear.
If you were me, you’d know how hard it is to not have a best friend anymore but have so many people you love that you just can’t choose which one is your “best”.
If you were me, you’d have what seems to be the only kid in 8th grade that doesn’t have a cell phone.
If you were me, you wouldn’t believe that your daughter can look just like you but be so pretty, because you’re not.
If you were me you spent that last three days watching too much tv but kind of loved doing nothing.
If you were me you’d know what it feels like to be a size six, miss it immensely but have no gym membership or time to get back to that size.
If you were me, you’d make the best meatloaf, mashed potatoes, chocolate chip cookies, and cheesecake in the whole world!
If you were me you’d struggle with which church you should call home.
If you were me you’d know that you would love to dress up for Halloween but you know you would feel like such a dork that you just can’t do it.
If you were me, you’d only have a handful of outfits to wear to work because you hate to buy clothes because you’re fat.
If you were me you would struggle with finding the reason for your mom’s death because there must be a reason, it doesn’t make sense.
If you were me you would have thought (when you were a kid) that your mom never really died that she just abandoned you but everyone was making up that story because they thought she would never come back.
If you were me you would hate people who lie and are fake because you trust really easy.
If you were me you would aspire to be a “Women of Faith” speaker.
If you were me you would be afraid to be quiet because God might tell you something you just aren’t ready to hear.
If you were me you would love to sing even though you know you can’t.
If you were me you’d love Panera bread so much you could eat there everyday with your daughter.
If you were me you would love iced tea, no sugar because that’s how Aunt Dee got you to drink it.
If you were me you wonder why your cousin’s friend who you had a big crush on is with that annoying idiot and not with you.
If you were me, you’d love your dad like crazy.

If you were me, you'd be afraid to fall in love because your heart might get broken again.
If you were me, you’d know that you copied this idea for a blog from Sara.

If you were me you would see how pretty you are and never again say that you're not.
