All the FB and blog bragging bugged me so I started to un-brag. About halfway through the week I realized even all of my unbrags: out of date technology, laundry-thon house, kids clothes and oversized sunglasses are still what some parts of the world would consider blessings to have and thus, bragging. I felt convicted. Isn't that funny when you think you might, dare I say, teach some folks a little something about realness, you are the one who ends up getting taught. So I guess my realness is about humility. Is it self-righteous to say that you are being humbled? Oh wait, I think a brain cell just burst from that higher level of thinking. Ouch.
