As a Christ-follower, mother and wife, sometimes I do wonder,

"What's normal?" 

"Is there really such a thing as a "normal" marriage or a "normal" child?"

"Am I normal?" 

Nope.

Each marriage, each family, each child is unique!  Instead of trying to cram our spouses, selves and children into a "normal" mold, a mold created by man and not by God by the way, we should step back and examine our situations.  Season our actions and plans with grace.  In the end, who cares what people think!  Honestly, your life and your family have only to answer to Christ - not to society, not to someone who wrote a best seller or to the pastor at your church.
