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.....


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.

Thanks for submitting!
