Last night our family stayed up way late/early at a friends house and ended up driving home around 1am. Trav could have stayed up till 3am and would have been a happy camper. I hit my wall around midnight.

So as we were driving home we stopped at a red light by a Burger King. I looked and saw a car driving through the drive thru and immediately judged. Without even thinking!

My response to Travis: ” Who in their right mind would EVER eat that kind of food this late?!”

I was imagining the grease from the burgers and the heavy feeling you get after eating a burger, fries and drink. (mind you I like Burger King! I think they have great fries. But that late at night…)

Travis’ response: *without thinking “Well, maybe it’s someone on a late night shift eating his lunch”

Me: “Oh.”

Of course. I had thought there was no reason for anyone to eat there that late at night. And then I thought of all the pregnant ladies (there’s a new wave) I know who would love to have a milkshake at that time. I couldn’t believe the critical mindset I still harbored and speak of without thinking.

I continue to wrestle with it. obviously, it’s a work in progress- my judgmental thinking. I’m working it out with God. But one thing is for sure: I am so grateful to have a husband who helps me think outside my box.

Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
