I am a wearer of many hats. I've learned something about myself in the last few years... I like it that way. Jesus is the center of my life, and everything else revolves around that (or at least I want it to).
My most important roles are wife and mother. I have a wonderful husband who I just celebrated 10 years of marriage with, and 3 beautiful children who keep me busy, tired, laughing and fulfilled.
I love to be creative, but I don't really find much time for it...so what I have is a lot of creative ideas and a hope that I can actually see some come to fruition at some point. Maybe this blog will motivate me in this category. =)
I love to be organized, and I actually love the process of organizing as well. But there is that time factor again, and my perfectionist tendencies that sometimes get the best of me... if it can't be the perfect, end all system, solution, piece of furniture, etc., I won't bother with it and then the mess bothers me (and my dear sweet hubby).
Currently, I am working part time at our local community college, Columbia College http://www.gocolumbia.edu/, as a guidance counselor and instructor... which is wonderful that I actually get to use those degrees I worked so hard to get. I love working there--the environment, the people, the actual work--it's challenging and rewarding and flexible.
We are a busy family with a lot going on, but mostly I just love being with people, especially those I love the most. I love a good book, special friends, movie night, date night, a powerful sermon, babies laughs, a pretty flower, a done scrapbook page... I could go on and on. It's the simple pleasures that make life meaningful for me, and I try to live in that thankful place.
