Friday Fails

Announcement: I’m taking a short Friday Fails break and we’ll resume sharing our fails in January! :)  Keep a record so we can all laugh! :)

Welcome to Friday Fails! This monthly (1st Friday of each month) blog meme/carnival encourages giving up pretense and keeping it real.  It is a good reminder that we don’t have it all together, and sharing our failures with each other produces greater mutual respect and credibility. Of course, we all love to get a *really* good laugh (at ourselves and each other) too! Be sure to check out previous Friday Fails posts!

Have you ever forgotten to change your home’s air filter for a year, or have you made a mess with your bread machine?  Maybe, you left a child at church and didn’t realize until you arrived home?  Have you ever walked out of the house with different colored shoes on?  Do you have a food fail or a homemaking fail? If you replied yes to any of the above questions, then this is the meme for you!

Friday Fails Guidelines:

1. Link up your permalink – not just your blog address.

2. Please mention Friday Fails in your post and leave a link back here to My Blessed Life.

3. You are more than welcome to use the Friday Fails button, but you aren’t required to.

4.  Try to visit the other Friday Fails participants!  Spread the love!!

5.  I plan to have my Friday Fails post and linky up by 11:00 PM CST on the first Thursday night of each month.

Thanks for playing along and keeping it real!

    Oh, Myra, tsk, tsk, no such thing as failed Fridays. When you get my age and you can still put one foot in front of the other, you have NOT failed!! I keep a notebook on my counter and sometimes my bedside to right down ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that comes to my mind that I might need to do in the next week. Guess what? It never fails I WILL forget something!!! SO? When you put it in the grand scheme of things, it DOESN’T MATTER!!! You’ll get it next time. As far as your uninsured house lol, guess what you’ll NEVER let that happen again, I promise! So, you learned something and you will be more aware next time! DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF. God knows when a sparrow falls and He knows the amount of hairs I have on my head which at my age is about 18!!! So, be a little easier on yourself, You’re doing a great job. Have a blessed day.

    When are you going to bring this blog carnival back? I have just recently stumbled upon your blog and would like to participate because I think it’s so important to be able to laugh at ourselves from time to time instead of letting every mistake bother us.

    If you ever get it kicked back up again, please email me at Thanks!
