I have labored over the "first post" for days. I have written, erased, re-written, several times. I read several blogs already and all of those women possess these wonderful writing skills. You know the blogs...the ones you can't wait for a post to go up because you know you will either get a good laugh or cry out of it. Well...I must face it...My blog may be that one day, but not today. Today I will just be happy to have the first post out of the way. ;o) It's a lot of pressure, people. I guess the lesson I'm learning from this is not to worry so much. Ummmm...yea, probably God it TRYING to teach me that one but it's not working out so well so far today. What can I say? Just trying to be honest, people. But this is the fun in learning lessons. Let's face it, sometimes you don't get it the first 200 times, but one day you figure it out and it's a great "Aha" moment. Keep reading...maybe one of these days I'll have one of those! ;O)
I am a Christ following, 31 year old girl, trudging through life trying to learn to be an adult! I am my husbands girlfriend, my step-sons encourager, my dogs mom, as well as a daughter, granddaughter, friend, niece, sister, and lots more. I am learning to juggle all of these things, and along the way my Father is teaching me a lot about myself. Join me on my ride of learning lessons!
Meet Olin. He is my rock, my foundation, my grounding force, my spiritual leader, my husband, and my best friend. He is the best thing that ever happened to me. He is eternally patient with me and all of my crazy ways. For that, I am very blessed. He loves Nascar, history, politics, and his boy. He loves to teach me things and take me outside of my comfort zone. He challenges me all the time and makes me long to be a better person.
Meet our 11 year old middle schooler!!! He is becoming quite the young man! A lover of science, outdoors, movies, and snarkiness...He gets the last part from me! :) We have had big adjustments leaving elementary school this year, but none that he hasn't taken in stride and worked hard to overcome. His dad and I are so proud of him and the young man he is becoming. Our prayer is that we lay a foundation that will withstand all of the trials he is sure to face in the next few years. One thing is for sure-boys sure are a hoot to have around!
