I am so honored to have you stop by and get to know me! This blog was created as a way for me to capture our lives. I envision this to be a diary of our lives that the kids can read and share with their kids.
Now onto some real things about me...
You know those people that can never get the lyrics correct on a song...well, I am notorious for that. I guess that is probably why I am a visual learner. If you show me how to do something, I'll probably get it right away as oppose to verbally instructing me. Because then I'd have to go over the things you told me over in my head, see it happen, and then actually doing it. Would that make me a deep thinker???
I live to serve and help others. But it probably doesn't come as freely when it comes to my kids. Perhaps I want them to learn how to serve and not be served, I'm not quite sure. Or maybe it's because I am always helping them and I'm kinda sick of it? It hurts my heart to see people suffer. I am a CRYER. There, I said it. If you get me talking about something or someone that invokes an inkling of emotion, the tears starts flowing. And it's not a pretty cry. But does anybody have a pretty cry?
I am married to the most wonderful man God has given me. We have grown up together, literally. We lived in the same neighborhood, went to the same schools, knew the same people. We had such a different path until God came into our lives. In our senior year of high school, we both accepted Jesus into our hearts and the rest is history, as they say. Life has been so rich with the Lord and John. I'm thankful I don't have to walk it alone.
I grew up in a single parent household. I never thought of the challenges my mom had to endured having to raise us. Now that I have my own kids, a partner in life, I can't fathom how my mom ever did it. Praise be to God for sure! Because of this, I have a soft spot for single parents. Their story would make me cry in an instant.
In all of this, I have a huge head. Not in the literal sense. I have a problem with an "I can do that attitude". Perhaps this came from having to take care of myself at such a young age. It has taken me a long time to be able to accept help. If I ever did, I had to rationalize it with paying people. For sure, this makes for a difficult relationship with God. But I am being worked on. The roughness is being sanded away and hopefully in the end I can be a product that will shine.
Thank you for reading about me. I hope you enjoy reading about our family!
