25 Random Things About Me

I got tagged on facebook, but this blog feeds into my notes on facebook, so I'll just post it here. (if you're not on facebook, ignore the previous sentence because it won't mean anything to you).
  1. My children are the most wonderful gift I have and the best day of my life was the day God made me a mother.
  2. My children are the most challenging thing I have to deal with because they reflect my strengths and weaknesses soooo much.
  3. I went to 11 different schools in my first 8 years of schooling.
  4. I love books.
  5. I love to drive a 5-speed car and can hardly wait for the day I can ditch my mini-van for sporty-red-5-speed-something.
  6. I LOVE being Cathlolic -- "I GET to be Catholic"!
  7. I don't have a single grey hair.
  8. Except for aparagus, I LOVE vegetables.
  9. I weigh more now than I ever have in my life ... and I really don't care.
  10. Jesus has been my best friend since I was 10.
  11. I love Breyers chocolate mint chip icecream.
  12. Our 15 year wedding anniversary is coming up and between lack of money and nursing a 1-year old, I can't think of ANYTHING fun to do.
  13. I love the feel of dishes, they can be so sensual (in a good way).
  14. I'm almost 41.
  15. I could eat sauteed onion on almost anything.
  16. I struggle with being too brutally honest and tactless.
  17. Being the mother of 5 kids is a badge of honor I wear proudly and I salute ANY and EVERY mother!
  18. Whenever I'm scared or unsure I always go back to what I KNOW is TRUTH and work my way from there -- it's like a mantra for me.
  19. I am so NOT gentle with the children in my life, so my new favorite saint is St. Anthony because he was so gentle in his love of the Christ Child.
  20. My worst year was 13 : my dad kidnapped us 1200 miles away and told us we'd never see our mom again.
  21. I love plaid.
  22. I'm a terrible housekeeper.
  23. My heart melts everytime I get near a baby -- especially my own.
  24. Almost all my friends are better friends to me than I am to them.
  25. I'm looking forward to the day when I can be a free spirit again and ride a shopping cart through an empty isle going as fast as I can make it go like I did when I was 22 instead of being the kind of person who says "get your hands out of your mouth" 73 times per day.

    I know that you may FEEL that your friends are better to you than you are to them, BUT, for me, you are truly the one friend God gave me who is SO important in my life. Life is busy, and you may not always be available when I WANT you, but thankfully God always gives you to me when I NEED you! Even if I don't know it's you I need, He does! Your friendship has changed me, helped me grow, laugh more, live more and love more ever since we met. I love that you are brutally honest, insightful, intelligent, tons of fun and so much more. You are unique because you are just always YOU. I don't know anyone else who gives themselves the freedom to do that. I just wanted you to know how much I love you and cherish our friendship. And you KNOW I never write things down or talk about my feelings like this:) Especially in public! Ugh!But you are definitely worth it my friend!
