So I usually pass on playing tag but I have learned to be thankful for anything at all that makes me stop and consider these things that are most important to me. So thank you, Michelle B., for turning my thoughts this way. Interested too, Michelle, as to what BIG changes are in store for your special little family...keep us "posted". :-)

I'm passionate about...
1) sharing 2) teaching 3) learning 4) pictures 5) health 6) food...not diet, just food 7) nature 8) keeping a happy husband, children and home.

You should read...
1) any or all of Jodi Picoult
2) Holes
3) Because of Winn Dixie
4) Pride and Prejudice
5) For Whom the Bell Tolls
6) Watership Down
7) A Tale of Two Cities
8) the Mark of the Lion series

I often say...
1) It's because I'm sleep deprived! 2) Do you need a consequence? 3) I love you! 4) The next time I have to tell you to clean up... 5) I'll have a tall americano, please. 6) Honey, are you even driving the speed limit? 7) If it weren't for Grandmas, our kids would be naked. 8) I'll do better with the budget next week.

In my lifetime, I want to...
1) know that my children love God. 2) offer my children the kind of support our parents and grandparents have given us. 3) actively participate in Heifer International. 4) learn to make a killer espresso. 5) study photography. 6) voluntour/voluntravel 7) own a vacation home and watch Ryan enjoy retirement. 8) finish Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover or I won't stand a chance with these last two.

This year I have learned...
1) to be content. 2) to enjoy the PROCESS of things. 3) more compassion and that I need more still. 4) to appreciate struggles that lead to victory that lead to song. 5) human love is NOT patient, kind, enduring and slow to anger but God's love is. 6) saying the right thing isn't nearly as important as leaving unsaid the wrong thing. 7) it is pure silliness to argue with a four-year old. 8) sometimes I need a time out.

Michelle V., Rosalyn, Amanda and Elizabeth, you have been tagged though I know all four of you are EXTREMELY busy. :-) Love!
