I am a woman who strives to follow God...my rebellious streak gets a mite smaller every day...well, most days :) I have accepted the challenge to
Frankie- I am me. I am a woman, girl, daughter, sister, mother, wife. I am a student and a teacher. I am a chauffeur, cook, nurse, maid, manager, bookkeeper. I am a singer, dancer, actress, pianist. I am a researcher, gardener, blogger, activist. I am a church member, co-op member, commonwealth member, board member. I am a neighbor and friend. I am a homeschooler, dog owner, cat owner, and former hedgehog and cockatiel owner. A dreamer, realist, pessimist, optimist. I am not a housekeeper, athlete, seamstress, artist. Nor am I patient or organized. I am not an expert.
I am a woman who refuses to make her bed. I am a girl who dreams big. I am a daughter who marches to a different beat. I am a sister who rarely sees or chats with her siblings. I am a mother who keeps looking for the four owner's manuals she was promised. I am a wife who adores her husband - even though he snores.
But is this who I am? Am I defined by these labels and occupations? I know what I want to be - a Disciple of Christ, and I know that I am not there . . . yet. Am I Mary or Martha? I would like to be like Martha, but I tend to be Mary, instead. I am always busy - doing, thinking - too busy to do the things I should be doing. Quite often I am busy at just being lazy. I KNOW what I should be doing, but getting myself to do it is another matter.
Now, if I haven't lost you already, please join me on my discovery to who I am through all my projects and experiments, trials and errors. And maybe we can both find out who we are.
