Introduction Anyone have trouble with this one? Just asking. Okay, I gotta get on with it. The easy stuff: I have my own business and work from home - this is good and bad. I can travel anywhere at any time which is good, great in fact. I don't have anyone telling me anything about when to work, how to work, what to work on. For someone with a touch of ADD this is bad. Everything in life is a tradeoff. Today I am thinking the trade is pretty good. So here I am in ATL (Vinings to be exact) thankful that I live near a grocery store b/c I love grocery shopping - odd, I know. Near Borders (LOVE THAT PLACE!) & a movie theater although I never go b/c most movies are really lame but it's nice to know that I can go at the very last minute which is when I decide to do most things. Close to a great trail by a river that I can run on and think about how God loves me so darn much when I am such a wayward, faithless woman. Lastly, I hope to have a family one day but more than that I hope I will learn to live these words by Jim Elliot "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose." I am a fool most days but I cling to the maxim....progress not perfection. Hope you do too!
Interests Reading; writing/journaling; FOOD!, great coffee, exercise to rest my weary mind and work off my latest love - Cold Stone. If you have never been do not go. Stay far, far away. Anyway, I adore people who say what they mean and mean what they say (I am working on being one of those people - it's hard if you really think about it), travel, spending time alone with Christ, my deepest love. Spending time with Him is the ONLY thing that changes me for more than 5 minutes. Whoever said you can't teach an old dog new tricks didn't know Jesus. And people - I just love them even when they aren't very lovable. I like to dive deep with people - a close friend likens me to a submarine. Hopefully minus all the alarm signals that go off when submerging. Not sure.
Favorite Movies Lord of the Rings, When Harry met Sally (no one orders food like Sally except me), Out of Africa
