My Zipper is Down!

"Wounds from a friend can be trusted."
Proverbs 27:6

I know I can always count on my friends to tell me the truth, even if it hurts. I expect that, even if it might be a little embarrassing, they will alert me to those things in life which would be more embarrassing if they didn't point them out. "Hey, Cari, you have a big, green schmutz in your front teeth." "Hey, Cari, you have a booger in your nose." "Hey, Cari, your hair is sticking straight up in the back." These are all things I would trust my friends to tell me, rather than letting me walk around not knowing.

I have to say, I'm a little disappointed. I've been walking around with my proverbial zipper down for quite some time now and either you haven't noticed or you've been too polite to tell me. I hope it's the first one, but I fear it's the second. I know that many of you receive Married To The Pastor via email, so you don't post that many comments on the blog, but I really need to hear from you on this one. I need an honest show of hands (comments) to know how many of you knew the word "Coffee" was spelled wrong in the header of my Blog! Of all the words for me to misspell....yeesh.

I've recently been at a writers conference and submitting various articles, etc.. where I've been telling editors, publishers, and other writers to check out my blog, only to have my nephew casually mention the other day. "Ha, ha...you spelled coffee wrong!"

Really people! Come on...help me out here! Thankfully, my writer-friend, Dawn, came straight out and told me I misspelled "Therapeutic". Come to think of it, you better let me know if you saw that one, too.

I'm leaving the misspellings in the heading for a couple more days as proof just in case, like me, you look at it every time you log into this blog and never noticed it. If that's the case, you should pay closer attention...at least one of us should.

Are you kidding??? How did we not notice "coffee" being misspelled. After all, it's one of our best friends. Sorry about that. I definitely would have told you if I had noticed it. Hang in there!

Hey Cari,
Did you know coffee is spelled wrong in your banner? haha! I only noticed because I finally had a cup to jolt me awake this morning, otherwise I would have been totally oblivious! haha! Hope you are having a good weekend!

I remember hearing that Amish women always purposefully(sp?) sew a mistake into their quilts as proof of their human imperfection, so I am saying I thought you did it on purpose to show us that even though you are a god-gifted writer you are also prone to human spelling mistakes...at least that is what I am saying...(usually I catch spelling mistakes right away)

I'm new here. But, no, I didn't notice 'coffe'.

Sorry,

Hey Cari - it's Muffin, uh, honestly, when I found your sight, and it's hard to find, I didn't even read the heading, I went straight for the story.....sorry. Please forgive us this lapse in judgement :0) Hope all is well in your neck of the woods, I mean that in the literal sense as you have woods. Take it easy....

So, honestly, I actually did notice it recently...BUT your post that day was SO good, I totally forgot to tell you. Honestly. :-) Oh my. I love flaws, just means we're humans! Enjoy your cofee today, Friend! - Amy

Thanks for the comments everyone! I'd love to say that I "sewed" that mistake in on purpose, but... I'm not that clever. I'm glad to hear that for the most part my errors weren't noticed. Amy, you're off the hook because of the nice compliment. I'm easily bought off. Jean, glad to have you here! Thanks all!

Muffin, sorry you had trouble finding me. Was it because the address is too long or what? I'd be interested to know if others are having trouble as well. Email me if you want or leave me a FB message and let me know... CJ
