Not, like, grafiti...

I've been "tagged." Tara "tagged" me and now all of you can learn more about the contents of my deepest thoughts and emotions.

8 things I'm passionate about:
1. My children. I love experiencing each moment I can with them. Watching them. Listening to them.
2. My husband. I love being near him. I can't get over him.
3. Learning who Jesus is. I want more than an "elementary age boyfriend" relationship. (Did you ever forget what your boyfriend looked like? I did.)
4. Changing who I am in Jesus. Allowing myself to be transformed into something better.

regarding this answer:
"6. Finding people to love. As in friends. Finding relationships to sustain me."
I know of someone you could love...and she is right here waiting for you. And it is me.

Remember how we wrote our numbers on coffe filters... well, after I talked to you, I left your number out and brian threw it away. Not because he doesn't like you, but because it was written on a coffee filter. So, I DO want to go, I have the days OFF, and Brian WILL be the best dad and take care of Lola. So, call me and we can finish making the plan.
