People who make you feel like dirt

My mother in law is one of the sweetest, kindest people I have ever met. Even when she has gotten frustrated with someone it's always been for their own good/health/safety/etc.

She is aptly named. Candy. Yeah, that's right, my mother in law is named Candy. And she's adorable and sweet.

She makes me feel like a worm.

I try not to compare myself to her because I seriously end up feeling like shit. I never swear around her, barely drink (maybe a small glass of wine here and there). Triple my efforts to be patient with my children. I am sure she's good for me. But I can't help but think of how flawed I am in comparison.

I was thinking about her today. I love her. She's awesome. And I've been a major bitch lately.

Candy = awesome. Me = worm.

Boo.
