On one last sprint around the house before bathtime.

You only have to be you.  We all need room to be who we are at every moment of our lives without excuses, apologies, or anything else.  Know that you are being given grace (and if a person doesn’t give grace, they don’t really deserve to be in our lives), and give yourself and others that same grace, too.
