About meI am a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend.

I am a Christian. I am a Graduate. I am an American.

I am me. Simply that.

I love my God and my family with my full heart. Everything I have, everything I am, everything I've learned and become is because I have a great and wonderful God and a loving and amazing family.

Just like anyone else, I've hit a few bumps along my journey through life. I'm proud to say that I've not let them stop me. When things got rough or scary I've always been able to count on my inner-strength, the strength of my family, or the might of a most powerful and loving God.

I am loyal and caring. I talk as much as I listen, I laugh as much as I cry, and I try to give as much as I take. I do hold grudges, but I am working on that.

I don't like burnt bridges and unmended fences. That's not for me. I guess you could say I'm a diplomat.

I always try to apologize when I'm wrong...and even when I'm not. I'm a better friend to my enemies than I am to myself, sometimes.

I'm stubborn and obstinate. I have no problem seeing everyone else's point of view, but it's difficult for me to give in and accept the fact that what I want to do isn't always what's best to do.

I'm sarcastic. I always try to think before I speak, but sometimes that doesn't help.

I'm selfish, but at least I can see that, and again, I'm working on that. I'm spoiled, but I also work for what I want. I'm proud. I don't like handouts, I hate admitting when I need help, and I can't stand pity.

I like big words. I put a lot of time and work into my education and I'm proud of it.

I'm a pretty self-confident person. I know what I want and I know what I expect of myself and others and apparantly that makes me intimidating. But that's okay.

I'm an educated woman and I love to learn, whether it be useful or not. Education and knowledge is something that I've always valued, and it's something I find attractive in men, as well.

I'm on the verge of giving up on love, but I just can't bring myself to do it because, ultimately, I will always believe in soul-mates and I'll always believe that God will provide. I feel like I wouldn't have this void in my heart and my life if God didn't intend to fill it and heal it.

I am a Christian. But I'm not perfect. I get lost, I sin, I stumble, and I have bad days. But "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" so I learn as I go and I gain strength and knowledge from every experience I overcome.

I'm a work in progress. God keeps putting some pretty heavy burdens on my shoulders, but he also puts some pretty beautiful blessings before me, too.

I just try to be the best person I can be. Sometimes I make decisions that others don't like or agree with, but that's okay too, cause it's my decision and it's either what I wanted to do or what I thought was best. That's why I call them decisions, not regrets.

I am me. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
