So Far in 250


I'm gonna jump in to the Blog Every Day in May crazy tomfoolery.
Day 1- My life story in 250 words or less- hahah. Here goes.

I was born in Chicago, am the middle of 2 sisters, the daughter of a pastor turned psychologist and a teacher/therapist. I spent my childhood in Ohio, where we moved with irritating regularity; I went to 8 schools before I graduated high school. The only reason I graduated knowing anything was because I learned to read young and read everything.

I became a follower of Christ just before my 20th birthday as a dare and out of desperation. I have been a follower of Christ every since. I am not a poster child follower of the Master of the Universe. I swear. I get angry. I am not humble. The only things I really have going for me are that I love Jesus, am awed by the Father, listen to the Spirit and am as faithful as a bulldog; I hold on and don’t let go.

My husband and I decided to get married within weeks of our first date. He’s the one for me. I’m his woman. It’s just that simple.

I had vowed never to marry a psychologist but have been married to one for just shy of 28 years. I vowed never to have kids. We have 5. I vowed never to live in L.A. We did so for 6 years. I have reverse magnetism in regards to vows and electronic equipment (neither work for me).

I am old enough to wake up and take aspirin right off and old enough to think that my dh is hot, even with all of his faults, which I know intimately. Age is a good thing, but wholly wasted on the young. And I hope to get older still, so the stories not finished yet...
