I cant believe I'm doing this

My new friend "mind of a mom" gave me this award with the job of being honest and sharing ten things about myself that may be interesting, here I go (taking a deep breath)

1.)I moved to Oregon 3 years ago because I was making bad choices in Sacramento and needed to get my life together and save my marriage.

2.)I struggle with showing my children affection, I wasn't raised with I love you's and hugs, money was used to show that.

3.)I see a therapist once every three weeks, it used to be weekly. Im making progress:)

4.)I love animals and do not support hunting as a sport, but I do eat meat. I know, the hypocrisy.

5.)I count the fingers on my right hand all day long, over and over. I have 4 fingers and 1 thumb

6.)I have lot's of fears that keep me from stepping out of my comfort zone

7.)I worry too much about being judged, I worry too much about everything

8.) Before I discovered blogging, I was very depressed, now I have you guys as friends and we talk and share important things:))

9.) I made alot of bad choices in my younger years, but refuse to let them define who I really am.
10.)Next to Justin my dad is my bestfriend and we talk on the phone everyday atleast once
11.) I recently found God and he is awesome and my life is awesome

Okay I did it, that wasn't so bad, I actually thought of more than ten things:)) I want to pass this on to : Brenda







blessed with 4

Thanks so much for the award! I will definitely get to the 10 honest things!

About The Shack, my brother-in-law got it for us at Target and I'm sure you could find it an any Christian book store near you. I'll be praying for your son!

Hey Mrs.Ruiz

Thank you so much for sharing, it is hard but it is good at the same time. xoxo
Blogging is great therapy you are very right about that. I have found some of the wonderful people I have meet have become very special friends in my real life not just in computer land! :o) ~ Two of my good friends started out as people who followed my blog and I followed theirs, now we talk all the time on the phone and share things as if it was a special sisterhood!

Thank you for the award. :) I havent forgot about the other one you gave me. I just havent gotten it posted yet because it came about the time I was coming down with that stupid cold. I did save the pic so I still have it and will post it very soon along with this new one.

Thank you for the award Mrs. Ruiz. Thank you for being so honest. I am glad that you are better with your depression and seeing your therapist less and less! The best thing is you found the Lord and you are turning your life around! I pray that 2009 will bring you many great new things!

Hugs, sharon

P.S. If you can, force yourself to show your children affection, they need it and it will make a huge impact on their lives. Just walk by them and ruffle their hair with your fingers and say "hey cutie" or "love you" or something like that and keep walking, make it short and sweet, but true and they will love it!

Thank you for the award.
Thank you for sharing about yourself. It is hard to do. I too am scared of stepping out of my comfort zone but I just remember that it is not what others think it is what God thinks that counts. I will be working on my list and will probably post it tomorrow.
Have a blessed rest of your day.
