Random Facts About ......ME!


I'm seeing so many posts reflecting on all that 2020 has delivered on people's doorsteps this year, and because I've already done a few of those, I thought it would be fun to write about something a little more personal.....ME!


In no particular order, here are the most random facts that you may or may not know about me:


I've always been a morning person - as in, up by 6:00 a.m. - even as a kid


I don't like mushy food. I need some crunch.


I drink coffee first thing every morning, but sometimes I actually get tired of it.


My morning routine is to get coffee, sit at my desk - write, create, and read my Bible.


I can't read if there is any type of noise going on.


I had the same cat from first grade to my senior year.


I competed in the Miss Teen of Texas pageant in 1984.


I love the music of Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn.


I kill plants.


I hate spiders and heights and hiking.


My love language is quality time.


I hate talking to people who are looking at their phone or aren't making eye contact.


I don't do fake. Especially in people.


I like giving better than receiving.


I enjoy being behind the scenes much more than being out front.


I have super high expectations of everyone, including myself. It's not a good thing.


I was once on a committee called The Committee on Committees. Dumbest thing ever.


I only like chicken if it's shredded.


I prefer savory breakfast over sweet.


The internet has given me overload of the brain for several years now.


I prefer old-school blogging over the current social media status.


I don't identify as any denomination. I'm a Christian - follower of Jesus. Religion is man-made. Just my opinion.


I enjoy worship over a sermon, any day. Preachers who don't like music......no. I don't get it.


I cry at weddings and baptisms. Every single time.


I love the conversations I have with my grand girls. I wish I had a recording of all of the talks we've had.


I prefer taking pictures of objects, rather than people.


I don't do selfies.


I'm never the one to tell people about my book. My husband always brings it up, which is embarrassing and yet, sweet.


I've owned a camera since I was a kid and used to send my pictures off to a company called YORK,

using my allowance. I always got double prints. My camera was the Kodak 110, with a flip flash. Oh yeah!


Every time I buy a new gadget, I end up giving it to my kids (bye bye Apple watch).


I don't press all the buttons in my car. In fact, I get a new car, learn the very basic functions and drive it. I never explore all the options. (This applies to electronics and large appliances too. Hence the Apple Watch situation).


I don't make resolutions any more because I can't be trusted to follow through. Same goes for yearly goals. I finally learned to accept this flaw in myself and I'm ok with it.


I change planners every few months and when the day comes that my kids have to clean out my stuff, they will find multiple planners, notebooks, journals, etc. that are 1/4 of the way used up and hopefully they can piece together my life like a jigsaw puzzle, because I've tried to change and I can't.


And there you have it! Random facts that make up some of who I am.


I hope you have a great New Year! We all know 2020 can be greatly improved upon and yet, I felt the move of God this year too.


More on that later.


Until next time.....

Blessings!




Hi, thanks for stopping by!

Writing is a vulnerable thing. It's a challenge to share your emotions, thoughts and feelings with total strangers. But the reward comes when you hear from someone that says "I get it!" - "Me too!" or "That touched my heart and it's exactly what I needed to hear." 

Then you know it was worth being vulnerable and it gives you the courage to do it again next time. 

Let the posts
come to you.
