Who am I?
That’s a really good question; the one thing I know for sure is that as soon as I think I learn a little about the woman I am or the woman I hope to become, I discover that there is so much more that I don’t know
About the world,
About my friends
About my family
About my boys
So Really, Who Am I?
I am an abuse survivor, a black cloud blower-outter, an abandoned housewife, a wrongly divorced woman, a struggler, a crier, a worker, a pray-er.
I am a tax-payer, a flag saluter, a freedom lover, a military appreciator, an entrepreneur, a citizen, an informed voter.
I am a student and a teacher, a do-gooder, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a friend.
I am a booboo kisser, a messy-car driver, a bad song singer, a chef, a baker and (too often) a dinner burner. I am a too infrequent laundry folder, a too frequent key loser and a whoo-see-whats-it finder.
I am a Mom.
I am a bad dancer - no, I am a really bad dancer.
And dancing is the least of the things I do badly.
I have lots of room for improvement and many places I continue to fall even after claiming to be Christian. I struggle to judge less, love better and more, overcome shame, move head in courage, and do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
I am imperfect. I am a sinner. I am human.
I am capable and deserving of giving and receiving love.
I am capable and deserving of hard work, good things, the heady rush of passion, and the simple bliss of peaceful moments.
I am a Child of God.
And through Him, I can do all things.
Only God knows the plans He has for me
And that is okay with me.
I am and will always be...
