OK. Here goes. I’m a blogger who’s been going at this writing thing long before it was called a blog. I’ve got diaries and journals that date back to the 70s. (Now THERE’S a good idea for some bloggin…diary entries circa 1978) I was even paid to be a writer for awhile; well…I should clarify – I was a technical writer for my REAL JOB (as my kids call it). But nowadays, I tend to write when I feel like I’ve got something to say…and I’m usually quite unsure if anyone is actually reading it besides me.
I’m a wife to my high school/college/forever sweetheart (who God conveniently dropped into my world during – perhaps – the worst week of my young life at 15). I’m mom to two superfly kids who keep me on my parenting toes…and who contribute to God’s daily reminder to me of “you have most certainly not got it all figured out, darlin”. Those three alone have taught me more about how much God loves me than anyone else in my world.
I have better friends than I deserve, a church that takes care of my tribe unconditionally, and a family God planted around me for the perfect purpose of loving me even when I’m unlovable, forgiving me when I’m a brat, and rallying around me like tall, undroppable walls when there’s a fight to be fought.
I think big and believe I can change the world (even if just a lil bit in my corner of it). I’m inspired by music. I read a lot. I like flea markets and cookbooks. I firmly believe that a good haircut and cool shoes can fix any outfit. I ride my bike on trails sometimes, too. And, I yearn for comments on my blog (um…hint hint).
There…that’s my “About”.
I hope you’ll stick around and read some stuff that I throw out there…I hope you’ll laugh with/at me and remember to stop and recognize that there’s more to all of this “life stuff” than just what we tend to focus on. Think big. Focus selectively. And read this blog.
