Just because...

So have been awarded a Versatile Blogger Award!  I always wanted an award!  My lovely friend Mary nominated me.  I also highly recommend her blog if you love reading the profound typing's of a truly real person.  


My nominations?  Ahh...let me see...I think I shall nominate two of my dear mom friends.  All You Need is Love and I Am Content(e) . Keep the ball rolling ladies!  Come on, it's fun!


So I am supposed to tell you all 7 random things about me. Ready?


1.  I am arrogant - But I will always humbly admit it when I am truly wrong.


2.  I hate cliche's and assumptions.  I am here as the exception to the rule wherever I can safely manage it, whether it is or no.


3.  One of my favorite things about being a mom is having an excuse to read fairy tales and nursery rhymes all day.  


4. I am a realist.  I don't sugar coat, what you see is what you get. I have been called harsh, stuck-up, hard hearted, intimidating, hard to read, eccentric and slightly over the top.  Part of me is so very proud of this reputation.  Part of me is very ashamed as I know much of it explains someone very young who just needs to get over themselves and learn to be at peace with their world. I have accepted that I am always a work in progress, these are not things to be proud of - but these traits were also given to me for a reason.  So all I can do is forever work to become the person God wants me to be while still being genuine to ME and wait - truly with baited breath, for whatever task is next set before me.  I don't feel as if I fit in in this world.  Luckily I was not made for this world.


5. I love singing, but every time I do it now I just get frustrated.  I used to be really good, I am no longer a shadow of what I was.  Too many years of not doing it for hours a day.  I am always telling myself I need to start again, but so far it hasn't happened.  I also love acting - but I have always been mediocre at best at that.  


6. I have problems finishing big things.  Not really sure why, there is probably some psychological reason for it.  It took me almost 9 years to get my drivers license.  I had one class to complete my BA when I finished 4 years at a UC.  6 years later I still have not finished it, but now I have 6 classes to complete.  My laundry is always half done...of course that could just be the mother-of-small-children thing and have nothing to do with my psyche. 


And lastly....


7.  We can't all and most of us don't and that is all there is to it.  - Eeyore

  1. I wouldn't say I'm arrogant but I have also been called harsh, curt, straight-forward and eccentric. All good traits! haha. Actually, I like the eccentric one. And I cut to the chase. I don't sugar coat either. I just have to learn to soften, like you I guess.

    Your comment on my blog touched my heart so deeply you cannot possibly imagine. I was the youngest in my fam and also having had no children sometimes feels as if I've not had or never will have any influence on anyone. God tells me this isn't true, and your note tells me this isn't true and I thank you for saying so.

    You are very special to me and always shall be.

    I love reading about your motherhood. It tickles.
