“The Little (Fill in the Blank)”

I’m short.

At (almost) 22 years old, I am 5 ft. even barefoot and soaking wet. (yes I know, whether or not I’m wet has nothing to do with it…)

Obviously I have become pretty used to being closer to the ground  than everyone else….

Its not just that I hang out with tall people…because well, all people around me are tall…including my 3 year younger sister.


Anyway, most days I deal with it (because I have so many other options right, haha)---but for some reason today I was really aware of my height.

I’m not sure if I was just particularly around that many tall people or the phrase “Wow- you’re so short” followed by “aww” was said one too many times….butttt I started feeling weird about being short.

So tonight I came home and turned on my TV and “The Little Couple” was on and I realized I was not that short at all….and it put things in perspective, and I realized that God made me just the way I am and I am abundantly thankful for that….

But then (yes, this post about “shortness” is not short at all…) I saw previews for another “little family” show on TLC….

and I was like…

Seriously??? TLC has like 4 shows on “little people”….

Ahem; “Little People, Big World”, “The Little Couple”, “Little Chocolatears”, and “The Little Family” (I think those are the correct names, am I missing any???)….

So I ask, what's with all the ‘little-lovin’??? Isn’t it kind of out of control now TLC?

Unfortunately though, I am not technically “little”---I’m just short…so don't look for “The Little Lady Engineer” on TLC anytime soon…..haha!

  1. Hahaha cute post! My sister is short too :) She's only 5 foot - i think... gotta love it! And, I am the younger one. She could probably realate to you REALLY well on this post!

  2. Hahaha! Sometimes I feel short, but I am 5'4". My husband is 6'1" so I like to stand on furniture at his height and take a look at the world from his perspective... I think it is much better from mine, a little safer! I am clumsy and am naturally attracted to the ground, so I know God made me short for a reason :)

    Thanks so much for your kind comment on my blog! I really appreciate it. Blogging has been a huge outlet for me in dealing with infertility and I have found SO much support! Hope you have a great day!
