You Capture - Me

Photobucket

This is me. Just me.
These are the things that make me who I am.

I grew up in Africa.
I miss the simplicity of Africa.


I've known my husband since I was in third grade.
We met at missionary boarding school.
I love my husband more than anything in the world.
He is my best friend.


I love God.
I try to be more like Him everyday.
Sometimes Many times I fail miserably.
He loves me anyway.


I am adopted.
My parents used to tell me they were lucky because they got to choose me.
If I could have chosen my children, I would not have done it as perfectly
as God did in placing them in my life.
I love my kids more than anything in the world.
They delight me,
frustrate me,
love me,
get frustrated with me.
They tug at my heartstrings.
Always.



I don't care about jewelry.
I don't like to shop.
I own just a few pairs of shoes.

I always take on more than I have time for.

I love to scrapbook, but I am hopelessly behind.

I love homeschooling my children.
I am addicted to curriculum.


I love books.
And writing.
And chocolate.

That is me. Just me.
Those are the things that make me who I am.
