This is where I am supposed to tell you a little about myself. It’s a good thing there isn’t a “140 characters or less” stipulation because Id never be able to manage that.
So, this is my blog. I am 36, a wife, a mother, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter!
My husband and I have been together for twenty-one years. That’s more than half the time I’ve been alive. We have been married for 17 years of that time. He and I have grown up together. We have been through so many things together and we’re not done yet. I love him immensely! I could not imagine my life without him, nor would I ever want to. He is he balance to my chaos, the calm to my storms, and God’s love wrapped in flesh that I’ve never deserved, but God’s grace allows me the privilege anyway.
We have three kiddos whom I love with every fiber of my fleshly being and everything that makes me, me. Their faces make my heart melt, and give me a smile on every cloudy day. I love them endlessly and like a momma bear with her cubs, will fight to the death for my babies, even after they’ve grown! Being a mother is one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever been given. They are my heart, walking outside of my body and I love them more than any words I could express. Oh yes, and we have a son-in-law; our oldest daughter and son-in-law just celebrated 1 year of marriage! (Time flies!)
I have hobbies, but not enough time nor discipline at this moment to follow through with some of them, but if I did, they would include spending more time vacationing with my family, reading, running, gardening and yardwork, blogging (hey wait, I think I’m making time for this), and I love to help others.
I work. I am thankful for my job, but it most definitely is not where I want to retire, nor my dream. It pays the bills and allows me the opportunity to serve others, deny my flesh and is building some character traits that I’ve been in need of. I don’t hate my job, I just don’t particularly like that I can’t do what I want and get paid. Yet. But, it’s all in God’s timing, right?
My family and I attend an amazing church, and we are so blessed to serve in ministry and use the gifts we’ve been given. We have been there for about 18 years now!
So, here I am. These are the tales from my heart, along my journey, in this one time around thing we call life. Someday I would love to turn some of my writings into books, and who knows, maybe become one of those crazy writers who inspires more than just myself! Someday! I hope these stories will be an encouragement to you!
