Just Saying…

Thoughts and other stuff from my life

About December 18, 2012

When I stop to think about who I have been and who I am today, I am always amazed.  Can this really be my life…wife, mother of three, teacher, and most importantly a daughter of Christ?  Yes, that’s me.

My husband, Jim, was an answer to my prayers.  Literally!  I spent months praying to God during a time in my life when I felt so alone.  And being faithful, He always answers prayer!  When I first saw him, I heard God whisper in my ear, “There he is, there is the man I have picked out for you.” And He didn’t disappoint.  He delivered just what I had prayed for…a hard working, honest, and faith man.  I am so blessed!

Heath is my oldest boy, now 18 years old.  He is a bit of a late bloomer, but has grown into a man I am proud to call son.

Ein is 13.  He is strong-willed and stubborn, but gentle at heart. He is all boy.  I can’t wait to see how he turns out!

My youngest is Emma who is 10.  She is a bit sassy and can hold her own against her two older brothers.  She is much like me, part girl and part tomboy.

Me?  well I like lots of things…I enjoy growing a garden every year and putting up the fruits of my labor to help feed us. I grow a lot of my own spices.   I like mowing the grass.  Yes, mowing the grass has been my sanctuary.  It is a time I can be alone. I put my Ipod on and sing praises to God (no one can hear my terrible singing over the roar of the motor!).  I enjoy getting lost in a good book and have trained my family not to bother me while reading. I love cooking and baking, often trying new recipes I have seen on TV or from cooking magazines. The only sport I love playing and that I am good at is bowling.  Nothing stands in the way of my bowling night.

I have many wonderful people in my life who has helped shaped who I am today.  They have loved me, taught me, and supported me in many ways.
