who am I?

Who am I?

I am compassionate. My top two strengths on the strengths finder were empathy and belief.  I feel deeply. I love with my whole heart. I want people to be everything God has created them to be.

I cry when I am hurt. I cry when others are hurt. I have been told I am a good listener,

I think about every angle of my decision-making to determine the possible consequences. I look at the big picture.

I am someone who thinks my actions, my words, and my faith should match up.  I'm not perfect, and I make mistakes, but I will not use that as an excuse to keep making poor decisions.

By God's grace, I live by His Word and empowered by His Spirit.  This doesn't mean I am always warm and fuzzy. Much of the time I am, but truth to me is more important than comfort.

I am sarcastic. I can dish it out, and I can take it.

I am stubborn and opinionated. Those two things are stamped all over my DNA.

I think for myself and have been doing so for at least two decades. I attribute that to the stellar gifted education I received in my elementary years. (Seriously.)

I am spiritual. I believe God is concerned about my life and involved in it. I would not have made it without Him.

I am a terrible dancer.

I am a great speed reader.

I rock at mommy-ing. Not because I am June Cleaver (I'm not). Not because I'm Martha Stewart (it's a good thing). But I've had to be an advocate for both of my boys' from day one (which was actually gestational age week 29), and I will continue to be until my last breath.

I sing in the car and in the shower. Country music and old hymns.

I am many things, good, bad and neutral.

But the one thing I am not ... a liar.
