You See My Reflection...A Lot About the Real Me...


Lately I have seen quite a few of you revealing more personal information about yourselves in an effort to help us all come to know who you truly are. So, I am willing to do the same.
Here is my expose:
I am a Christian Woman but I am not conservative. I love God and I talk to Him every day. I live my life large and loud. There is not a Def Leppard song that I do not turn up, I enjoy a nice glass of wine and I have many juicy stories to tell about my life when I am an old woman.
My children are the essence of who I am. They are my heart and soul. There is nothing that I would not do for them or to keep them safe. That includes my daughter Sophia who I am waiting for.
My husband Tim is the quiet man who stands beside the loud independent woman and does everything within his power to make all of her dreams come true. I love him completely and worship the ground he walks on for making me so happy.
I am a loyal and dedicated friend and I expect the same in return. I am not an acquaintance type of person. That is not to say that I do not care for those around me because I truly do. But, I do not invest in relationships that are not the real thing. I do not worry or wonder about my close friends talking about me or betraying me behind my back-it doesn't happen and I don't do it. There is no room for lies or deceit in my life, if it becomes a habit, I'm done. Don't cry or send me cards. It's not that I'm angry, I'm just not investing anymore.
I am not the shiny happy friend who tells you what you want to hear. I say it like it is. I respect my friends who do the same. If you are in an abusive relationship, I'm the friend in your mans face. If your mother passes away, I'm the friend on a plane to be by your side. Whatever is going on, it's going on with me too-we're in it together.
I am dedicated to the evolution of women. I truly believe that each of us is on a journey of our own that involves our spiritual, physical and mental selves. Who we are in our 20's is not who we are in our 30's and may not be who we are in our 40's and so on. Life keeps coming at us and we're working through the good and the bad, which together is what is making us amazing women. I love to see women standing strong and overcoming adversity. I love to see their dreams come true and to cheer them through whatever comes their way. I'm on my own path and enjoy every kind word you send.
I am devoted 100% to the adoption of my daughter. I love my babygirl and I'm going to take whatever life lays before me, the good and the bad to bring her home.

I love the part about you being a true friend and saying it like it is. I am just beginning to be able to do this with my friends and am noticing what a blessing it is. Plus, I love that you don't back stab. Can't stand that.

I have found a new and wonderful friend.....I could hardly sleep after I got home last night. Looking forward to planning another night out soon! ;)

Rachael said...

I've missed reading your blog while I was traveling.
Thanks for your encouraging words on mine!!

Stacy said...

You have written another wonderful post. Thanks for sharing a little bit of you.

I look forward to checking your blog everytime I get on the computer. You have such a positive spirit and I really appreciate that.

Daniella said...

Beautifully written - thanks for sharing and I'm glad to be on this ride with you.

Mommy Spice said...

Again, I love popping over and reading your blog. Thanks for more insight to who you are. Much of what you said, I could already "read" about you through your previous blogs. Does that make sense? Anyway, thank you!!

kris said...

So I think I finally get why we feel connected. I'm that kind of friend too... my sister always used to say, "If I want sympathy, I call Kim. If I want the truth (mixed with empathy, always), I call you".

Thanks for opening up. It's wonderful to get to know each other a little better.

C.J. said...

...and you are awesome. Thanks for being an inspiration.

Sorry but I'm laughing about the 'cat's ass' comment.

marina said...

Wow you sound like an amazing friend. More people should be this mature and honest in their relationships.

Joannah said...

You are someone worth knowing! :-)

Kayce said...

What an inspiration to us all! I loved to read that there is another LOUD girl in the world! And also that your husband is a quite one, so is mine and he just sits back and watches me crank up the noise! Great post!

nikki said...

Thanks for sharing more of who you are, but I agree with Mommy Spice...you are so open and genuine in your blog and your comments, that I already felt I knew a lot of those things.

I am also a gal who is much more interested in deep and meaningful friendships rather than shallow aquaintances. And I have been told that I can be "brutally honest"...

Your children have such a good role model in you! And I'm happy to have "met" you here in bloggyland. Now, the next time you and Stef plan an outing I WANNA COME!

Panda-Mom said...

Def Leppard? Yesssssss ma'am! I Wanna Rock! I am a minister's wife as you know, but I am also the product of being a teen in the 80's. I completely rock out to DL and just ignore the horrible words! "I just listen to the beat!" LOLOLOL! Thanks for being REAL and a great cyber "friend". : )

Monica said...

Thanks for sharing! (I, too, am a boisterous soul married to a quiet man...those kind of fellas NEED us! Not to mention, we need them!!!)

Jewels of My Heart said...

What beautiful insight into the window of your soul... you are an exceptional lady. I love how you are always so caring about others and encourage us all to jump in and cheer them on.
We are all doing wonderful... Husband is at work, kids are in bed and I am still trying to crack the code to my blog to tweak it the way I want while eating a giant box of DOTS... thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment, I needed to come up for air and glad I did.... Once again I am blessed for calling you friend....
God's Speed to your baby love

cougchick said...

Thanks for posting this.
The way you describe yourself is the way I pictured you from what you write.
