Maybe, just maybe

Maybe the girl who always dresses like she's come straight out of fashion magazine, is jealous of me because I can go out in public in sweat pants and a t-shirt.

Maybe the girl who can't leave the house without make up, is jealous of the fact that I can go the whole day and forget to wear any.

Maybe people are jealous of the fact that I can leave my dishes in the sink for the day while they wish they didn't feel the need to have a perfectly clean house.

Maybe there are some people who drive a big fancy vehicle are jealous of me because I don't have to worry about my mini van getting a little scratched up.

Maybe some published authors are jealous of the fact that I don't have any deadlines to meet or editors to impress.

Just remember, you never know who might be jealous of you.

Have a great weekend. Hope the weather is good where ever you are.

Oh yes. Exactly.
Maybe people are jealous of me because I have a tiny dog who sits with me all day long and wants nothing more than to be close :)Maybe. It could happen :))

I hope that skinny girl is a little jealous that I have a lot of curve. Could happen. Maybe.

Have a great weekend Patti!

Wow. SO TRUE. I never thought of it this way. As a gal who can go out in public in sweats and a t-shirt, never wears make-up on the weekends, and frequently leaves dirty dishes in the sink, I love your perspective!

This is great!! Love it. It's true people don't always appreciate what they have, too--curly haired girls wish they had straight hair, and straight-haired girls wish for a bit of curl. LOL

Awesome reminders! You're right-- you really never know who might be jealous of you. It's a good thing to think about!

So true. We never know what's going on in people's minds. And simplicity is something to covet (I certainly do).

Have a great weekend.
