20 Pieces

Welcome to my site! Want to know a little more about me? Here’s 20 statements:

1. I’m typically private when it concerns myself, and I feel ridiculous when I make “about me” paragraphs.

2. Write for YOU.  If someone enjoys it, great.  But, people who write and post in order to fuel their ego or for an ulterior motive miss the point of the joy of writing.  I don’t care if I become the next J.K. Rowling, and I am NOT trying to be the next motivational blogger/speaker.  If that happens, it’s because of some higher power, not because of me.

3. I love to read and write.

4. I believe in survival.  Do what you have to do to live.  Raise your children.  See them fed.

5. I love beauty, and all things beautiful. Art. Photography. Music. Children. Life.

6. I have a genius for a brother, and it’s daunting at times.

7. I know what deep, true, and forever love feels like.

8. I’ve felt pain in my heart deeper than words, and sometimes the scars come back to visit me.

9. I’m a college graduate, and I would like to go back to school.

10. I’m a word nerd.

11. I want to write a book before I’m 30. Only 4 more years to go!

12. I am a control freak/borderline OCD, and a perfectionist. 100% type A personality.

13. I’m having a really hard time coming up with 20 things about me.

14. I am trying VERY hard not to turn this into a shameless mommy blog.  I think that there are more facets of my life than being a mommy.  That being said, I’m really failing at sounding like an adult on here. Time will tell.

15. I love to sing. I did it all through college. Music is one of the most sacred loves of mine, and I am hard pressed to share my passion with someone who cannot appreciate it.

16. I LOVE random trivia.

17. I’m a Norman, Oklahoma girl. Boomer!

18. I dream of fairy tales.

19. I believe in these 3 things: Integrity of Heart, Skill of Hands, and faithfulness. Always, be a person who is full of honesty and integrity. Even when things go wrong- let it not be because you acting as less of a person than you are meant to be. Always work hard at developing your strengths. Make your skills and talents better. Lastly, never give up. When I die, I want the people who knew me to say that I was honest, a hard worker, and faithful to the Cause, even at the end.

20. I love God with all my heart, my mind, and my soul. I believe that people should be motivated by love, and not hatred. Too many Christians give Christ a bad name.

    I am looking for relatives of Terry McGrew from Oklahoma City. Terry was a close friend and mentor when I was young – 40 years ago. His son (if I remember correctly) was named Todd.
