Remember when you were a kid and you didn’t care what other people thought about you? Personally, I wore neon for a season. Now, if I cared about what others thought… do you think I would’ve worn neon? No way! And then I went into a camouflage stage. Pretty drastic. I went from, “Look at me!” to “You can’t see me!”
We recently went to Pismo Beach for our annual family getaway and what I’ve noticed is, the kids don’t care about the strangers who are judging us from afar.
You may be asking, “Why are peopling judging you?”
Well, simply put. We’re a mixed-race family and we tend to turn heads wherever we go from that, but on top of that… our kids have recently decided they need to communicate their needs with very loud voices. So, people look because of the noise and then they stare because of our mix.
They also stare because our kids are always doing some goofy dance… and I’m always taking video of that very dance.
But you know what… it’s okay. We love our family and we wouldn’t change a thing about it. Everyone gets judged for all kinds of reasons, but God calls us to love. So that’s what we try to do.
Here’s part one, of two, of our most recent trip to Pismo Beach and Avila Beach, CA.
