My earliest memories are of ‘doing’….
sewing {learning on an old Singer from the 1940’s},
helping my Dad build our house {I’m sure he didn’t mind one bit!?!}
crocheting {I used a big plastic needle and taught myself….oi},
using my knit magic {loved that thing} to make everyone scarfs {okay…they were tubes that looked like colons},
saving scraps of whatever to make stuff later {I hate to waste},
starting my own family newspaper {I got a kids typewriter for Christmas one year and used carbon paper for the copies},
and some other stuff along the way.
I don’t have much time to create now but the feeling of wanting to create…needing to create…has never been stronger.
Most days I just look to see what others are creating and making mental notes of what I want to do
and sometimes I actually do it!
I am married.
I love my husband more today than yesterday…
I have three boys…
each so unique and so wonderful…
each bringing a smile to my face every day….
For several years I was a single mom working up to three jobs at a time…
working in an office….
missing my kids….
but now I am home…
I am a Christian…I have been for as long as I can remember.
I have not always lived the Christian life….
I would love to say that I had…but each day offers a new beginning….
and for that I am thankful.
I like to share my faith…
not insist that someone hear it
but instead that they see it in my life.
I don’t pretend to have all the answers.
I am a homeschooler….
Even before I had kids I knew that I wanted to homeschool them….
It has not always been easy or convenient…
but I am thankful for this time with them….
I know they grow so quickly and each moment I have with them is such a treasure.
When I was younger I studied to be a commercial pilot…..
I love to fly…such a feeling of freedom…
I haven’t flown in years…
but I may again some day.
I love to encourage people and to be encouraged…
I am very shy…
Words escape me most of the time.
I think of things to say or to write but when it comes to
putting them down on paper {or blog} or saying them
there seems to be a disconnect…..sort of a loose wire!
{I’m a hugger…that is what I resort to when the disconnect occurs!}
I love to call myself a homemaker…
to cook, bake, clean, sew, craft, garden and so much more…..
I hope you join me as I do what I can taking one day at a time, sharing my creations and thoughts…..
