Welcome to my little piece of the blog world. Writing is a new found passion for me. Or maybe a God-found passion in me. I appreciate your interest and your time and I look forward to getting to know you better through what I hope will be relation and interaction with the words I can’t help but get out and down and eternalized here.
I belong to no one but my Savior, Jesus Christ. I struggle daily with my selfish pride.
I love the security of my marriage and strong arms of my man. I am fiercely independent and stubborn to a fault.
I feel complete as a mother of two. I long to have gang loads more children.
I love to cook for and serve others. I am ecstatic to be taken out for a nice meal.
I anxiously await the coolness of fall after a long, hot summer. I can’t wait for the rebirth of spring after a long, cold winter.
I could spend hours on end watching old black and white movies. I feel sick if I stay cooped up inside more than a day.
I am a realist. I am a dreamer.
I often talk to myself. I sometimes answer back.
I love a hot cup of coffee. And a cold glass of milk.
I’m proud of being a born and bred North Carolinian. I also feel like I was supposed to be born out west, 100 years ago.
I don’t mind manure on my boots and dirt on my hands (no nails to get it under). I can dress up with the best of ’em and enjoy an occasion to.
I can change a flat tire…on the side of a major interstate…alone. I would rather not.
I was born with arched feet fit for a ballerina. I wouldn’t know a plié if it bit me in the…foot.
I took piano lessons for five years. I cannot play chop sticks without music to read (and probably not well even with it.)
I spent too much of my young adulthood in places I should not have. I’ve spent much of my recent years wishing I hadn’t.
My life is full of paradoxes. And I’m full of sin and struggles. But I’m redeemed. Forgiven. Saved. And I look forward to continuing to work out my faith a bit more through this blog. Thank you for indulging me.
