That would be me :)
First off I am a child of God. Then I am a daughter, mother, sister and friend.
I am sure that there are other roles that I have left out but we will get to that.
In 2012 I gave my life to Christ. I never, ever thought I would be where I am right now. I never pictured myself belonging to a Church, being commited to God. But you know what? Right now, I would not change it for the world. My life has changed dramatically since May 2012 and I am loving each and every moment of it. I have a love and passion for Christ, for growing His Kingdom with all of my might. I am drawn further and further in by the fruits that I see in people’s lives around me. I feel loved, secure and ever so happy.
I am fortunate to have the best mother in the world – really. She is amazing. She is my mother but also my best friend. I know that I can tell my mom anything and everything. There is never any judgement and she will stand by me no matter what. Mom also happens to be someone that I can look up to – she is an amazing person with a determimnation and go-getter attitude. Ain’t nothing stoping her. SO proud of all that you are MOM!
Being a mother myself has taught me a whole lot about what my mother did for me when I was growing up. As I said, I always knew that I wanted to be a mother, so naturally I absolutely love this aspect of my life. I started young, had all three boys by age 22, and there was regret but now that I am older, and still single, I am so glad that I have my boys. I watch friends who are 30 and above freaking out because they have not met that special someone and they do not have kids.
My sister and I only met when I was in standard three. She is actually my half sister – we share a father but have different mothers. But to me, she is my sister. I guess that growing up in completely seperate life styles and with completely seperate ways *quietly* kept us apart for many years. There is a five year age gap between us, which is small now but when I was in high school my sister was already married and moved towns – and so we never really bonded. I was always drawn to my sister and her inner peace that she portrays. Slowly but surely we have formed an amazing bond – there are a few contributing factors. Honestly, I have the most amazing big sister ever. I know that I can tell her anything and she is so supportive, caring and non-judgemental. Kerry, I love you. Thanks for being the greatest big sister.
I would like to believe that I am a good friend. A friend that will go to the ends of the earth for those closest to me. I love each and every one of my friends and I love how diffderent each one is. I have the friend that has been there since I was six. I have the crazy male one. I have the one’s that have not been around for long, and yet it feels like a lifetime. I have mommy friends, school friends, virtual friends, Church friends, friends that started out as neighbours and are now far from that and more like part of the family. I have friends from all walks of life and from all different cultures. And I love that each friend brings something different.
Obviousy there is a whole lot more to me that the above… but that is what came to mind when writing this post!!
