One small comment can ruin your day..

So I know that people sometimes can say things and it can be taken the wrong way. I get it. But it still doesn't change that those small comments can hurt...
Like today for instance...
I have had a GREAT week with my cousins from Utah. We've played games, gone to the lake, and today we went to the river. I have been in SUCH a good mood!

Of course, all good things must come to an end. I got on my phone and started looking at the pictures of Madden that The Couple had posted on their Face Book and two of the comments that people had left on the pictures just really hit me hard..

"Wow! She looks just like Stacy!"
"She is so lucky to have Stacy as a mom!"

Now don't get me wrong. I am very thankful for Justin and Stacy to be her parents and I know they are wonderful parents...but that comment still hurt. It made me feel like I wasn't good enough to ever be her mom. The worst part is that I know that comment wasn't meant in that way at all and it still hurts!!

And as for the looking like her mom comment...I don't know why that hurt me too. I mean, maybe it's just that she looks SO much like me and everyone who has seen me with Madden says how we look exactly the same. I don't just hurts. A lot.

And even though I know those comments shouldn't offend me they still do and I just can't help but ache and cry.


  1. you DO look exactly like Madden. and no matter what, you will always be Madden's mom that carried her for 9 months and loves her forever. i love you <3

  2. When I read those comments I seriously gasped cause I would be hurt too. In fact when people would say my son looked just like my husband because he's my son too. I know this doesn't compare at all, I just hate when people hurt you! It makes me want to crack some skulls!
