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

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!
