"....Your children shall be like olive plants all around your table." Psalm 128:3

Monday, December 10, 2012


Hello, friends.

I thought it would be fun to share a little bit about myself, using the ABCs...

A - age: 46 (til April, anyway)

B -brother: I have one, who lives just over the hill from me.

C - children: I have 8:  7 on Earth and 1 waiting for me in Heaven.

D - dogs:  we don't have any. Hubby is allergic to them, but on Saturday morning, after 2 stray dogs killed our 30-lb. gobbler and 2 chickens (one of whom was our homeschool chick  and the other one was Elmer.),  I can now safely say that will never own a dog.  And after seeing my children grieve for their pets for the past 3 days, I am perfectly fine with that.

E - exercise: I desperately need it, but just don't take the time to do it.

F - fall: my favorite season.

G - grandchildren: I have 2 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.

H - home: my domain and my sanctuary from this world. I strive to make it as peaceful as possible.

I - introvert: I like to be around people, but I am most comfortable with those closest to me.

J - Jack: our newest furry family member, very gentle with the children.

K - Kim: Aaron's cat, and what a life he has - sleeps, eats, sleeps, eats...well, you get the picture.  :)

L - Lisa: my name. My daughters and granddaughters all have a form of my name in their name. I love that.  :)

M - mom: my mom is the epitome of the Proverbs 31 woman, with a true servant's heart.

N - necklace: I love to make homemade jewelry.

O - outdoors. I'd rather be outside (working in my flower beds or in the garden) than inside.

P - peanut butter: I used to love it, and after being on this sugar-free diet for so many months, I "cheated" and took a little taste of it. ICK! I never want to eat it again.

Q - quiet: I need some of it every day.

R - rain: I love cool, rainy days. They're perfect for sipping hot apple cider and curling up with a good book.

S - sisters: I have 2 and I am the youngest. And I never let them forget it. ;)

T - Todd: the name of my beloved.

U - unique: my children tell me that this word describes me.  Hmmm... I wondering if this is good or bad.  ;)

V - virtuous: I strive to live by Proverbs 31 every day. Sad to say, I often fail.

W - weepy: I tear up easily, which really bugs me sometimes.

X - xylophone: I played one at a Christmas concert in elementary school.

Y - yellow: not my favorite color.

Z - zipline - we have one in our backyard, and the children love it!

"Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
Who only does wondrous things!" ~ Psalm 72:18

I hope your week is full of blessings!

  1. This was a fun way of getting to know you!

    P.S. Take heart, I too, am a weepy sort… to my dismay sometimes too!

    1. I'm happy to meet fellow "weeper", JES. Thanks so much for stopping by. :)

    2. Oh, me, too. I totally relate about it sort of bugging me 'cause sometimes I just don't want to be all teary eyed...

      Love this post, by the way. :)

    3. Yet another "weeper" among my blogging friends?! Nice to know I'm not alone. :)
      Thanks so much for stopping in for a visit, Lisa.
      Much love to you, my friend.

  4. Love your fun post! What a blessing to have a Proverbs 31 mother!

    1. She is such a blessing to me! Thanks for stopping in for a visit. :)

  5. Oh, so sorry to hear about Elmer and the other chicks too=( I am sure that everyone was upset.

    1. Yes, Saturday was a rough day, Heather. :(

  6. Your A B C is simple yet quite telling.
    I started to become weepy at age 46.
    I like yellow daffodils, spring and lots of sunshine.
    A home teacher learns to make little quiet can go a long way.

  7. How wonderful - another "fellow weeper"! So happy you stopped by, Karen. Hope you have a week full of blessings. :)

  8. Oh, I love your A,B,C's Lisa! We are a lot alike in many ways. :) How terrible that Elmer & school chickie are gone. Oh, I know the feeling of losing those feathered-family. It never gets easy. And I agree with being away from sugar and then trying some again. I'm not completely off sugar, but far more than I use to be. My latest candy is frozen blueberries - love them! Thanks for sharing yourself. ♥

    1. I love frozen blueberries, too, Jane. So glad you stopped by. :)
