Five minutes…. Hmm. Expectations are unmet in so many ways. I expected as a child to have parents who loved me, or at least acted like they did. Hmm. I expected as a teen that everyone would like me or at least act like they did. Hmm. I expected as a young woman that my life would be perfect or at least look like it was. Hmm. I expected as a mother that I would always do the right thing, always be the smiling Susie homemaker, or at least look like I was. Hmm. I expected as an adult that I would be treated as one, or at least feel like I was one. Hmm. Now my expectations are more realistic- I am confident in the One who made me, that my expectations in Him are well met; that He makes me whole, perfect, loved by Him. Nothing else matters.
