uniquely you

Day 2: What makes you uniquely you?

i'm not going to lie-i kinda don't like answering questions like this. it feels a lot like talking myself up and i'm not really comfortable with that. 

so, i'm just going to stick to some random facts about myself. here we go...

1. i got my ears pierced for the first time when i was 15 and passed out in the middle of the store immediately afterwards. i ended up being allergic to every metal known to man and gave up on earrings about a month later. (turns out the only metal i'm not allergic to is platinum. yep-lucky for husband my husband i'm not much on jewelry)

2. i am not a big talker and gregg (husband) often tells me to "use my words" when we are having a discussion about something important. this is because i will start trying to explain my feelings and then give up once i get past "i just feel like..." fortunately, God married me to a very communicative husband. seriously, it's like the traditional male/female relationship roles are reversed in our marriage when it comes to this area. he is the one who asks how i feel about things, what i'm thinking and tries to get me to talk. this is good because otherwise we wouldn't really discuss much of any value around here :)

3. we are currently going through training to become foster parents with the hopes of eventually adopting through the foster care system. this is both exciting and terrifying.

4. i am so.not.athletic. 

5. i struggle with being a stay at home mom. while i love my days with abbey (most of them at least ;) ) and am so thankful that i get the choice to stay at home and spend this time with her-i struggle with the label and finding other things to focus my attention on. i also fear the future-what happens when our kids are grown and i haven't worked in 15 years? i worry about that feeling of loss i will feel at that point.

ha, there's no chance i can support us on my income for 15 years. i can't even do it now, so you can take the "haven't had a job in 15 years" worry off your mind friend.
