I am glad you are here.
I am a wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, Christian working to get comfortable in my own skin. I am learning this is a journey that requires significantly more work than I want it to. It likely means I will have to become an exerciser and a vegetable eater when I would prefer to spend every afternoon in a climate-controlled movie theater eating buckets of butter-dripping popcorn and drinking coke through a Red Vine straw.
I don’t really have the right metabolism for that.
I am tired of plastic faith. I want a life that is gritty, stretching and rooted in a love for God’s word. Seriously, I want everyone to fall in love with the Bible. I want to disagree and still be friends, which is going to take a lot of work.
Aside from being with my family, my favorite thing to do is plan crazy-big ministry projects. You can check them out at www.brightenacorner.com. I left that behind when my family relocated from California to East Texas, and I am still figuring out my life and my calling.
My son is grown and lives too far away. My older daughter is launched in her first year of college…1700 miles away. My youngest has special needs and will always live with us. We are hoping someday she will not sleep in between us…she’s too big for this nonsense. We homeschool and pursue therapies and try to laugh more than we yell.
My husband’s parents have passed away from Alzheimer’s and dementia. My parents are aging, and we are in the thick of the sandwich of our generation.
I am learning to love my people for who they are, not who I want them to be. And I am desperately trying–as always–to get organized. Join me?
