I'm always on the lookout for more blogs to fall in love with, as if I have enough time as it is to keep up with my current list! So when I came across this blog party, I just felt compelled to overwhelm myself with more cool blogs! :-)
That being said, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I'll try to keep some of it to little known facts, so as not to bore any of you who know the usual.
Here are the well-known facts:
I am 31 years old and have enough white/gray hairs to last me a lifetime.
I'm a wife to an amazingly gifted and kind husband. We have been married for almost 11 years and I look forward to how ever many more God grants us.
I have four incredibly adorable, awesome stair-step children (9, 8, 7, and 4) that I love and adore.
We are one BIG happy family.
I am very busy these days and don't like it, but still find (MAKE) time to write as often as I can. I am also presently annoyed that my pictures are cut off when viewing my blog, the last two anyway. But can't take the time to mess with it...so sorry they are cut off. I do know it and feel bad about it, but am not willing to fix it right now. :-)
Now, let's move on to the GOOD stuff. The stuff only my closest friends know about me.
#1. I don't like to be hugged. I have mentioned this one before...but most of the time, it makes me cringe inside. I accept it well, especially from those who have no idea that it bothers me. I also can't stand for someone to put their hand on my back or my shoulder, especially if they know I don't like it. Yes, Cindy, I'm talking to you!
#2. I was adopted as a baby and have NEVER, EVER wished my life had turned out any different. I am thankful every day that God placed me with a family who loves me and allowed me to stay in the family, instead of spending my childhood lost in the foster care system. My mom and dad will never truly know how grateful I am for their sacrifice, for raising me and instilling God's love in me and praying daily for me.
#3. Someday I want to travel the world. I love to fly and would love to go anywhere I am able. I have always had a heart for overseas missions as well and it will be interesting to see if God uses that later on in life. Right now my mission field is my family.
#4. I love to sing but am extremely self-conscious about my voice. I especially love the alto and tenor parts...and I am lost hearing a good male voice singing tenor. I'm a sucker for good old fashioned hymns, especially the ones I know the harmony to!
#5. Some day, if I ever find myself with a little extra money, I am going to invest in a completely superficial, unimportant physical improvement: Laser Hair Removal.
OK, I think that's enough for now. Are you still there??? Those weren't interesting facts. In fact, I never promised they would be. I just said they would be lesser known facts about me. I'm kinda boring overall!
