I'm so happy!!

I know what I want for Valentine's Day (yes, with my DH, it's appropriate to give big "hints" about what would make me happy!!) I see that Casting Crowns is coming to town again!! That's what I want...two tickets to see them in concert, and $$ to buy a concert t-shirt!! YAYYYYYY!!!

I = Introvert

I...that's easy. I am definitely am an introvert!! I love scrapping by myself (well, I love scrapping with friends too), but I am my most creative by myself. If I don't get "me" time daily, I get really grouchy. So, my family knows that when I'm grouchy, it's time for me to scrap!! I love reading books, listening to music, watching movies - all by myself. I can handle a few bursts of extroverted-ness, but by the time it's over, I am worn out! Yep - definitely an introvert!

H = Helpful

Well, I couldn't think of an "H" word, so I enlisted the help of 3 friends. They all decided on "helpful". They say that I am helpful. Hmmmm, well, I guess I am. I like to help people at work & teaching people how to do things...but helpful, like in a humanitarian way...I don't know. The jury is still out I guess. Maybe it should be "heart". Since getting on blood pressure medicine & realizing that it runs in my family, I've been getting more into heart health. Anyway...on to the letter "I".

G = Grateful

I am grateful to God for all of life's daughter, my husband, a great job, good health, a comfortable house, a good car...sometimes I don't act like it, but I am grateful!! I recently saw a quote that said something like "You are not grateful if you cannot say thank you." So I have been trying to say thank you a little bit more lately. Thank you God!

My fondest childhood memory:

Mine is a Christmas dad was ill with cancer at the time - I didn't know how sick he was...well, we opened all the presents & I was happy with everything, but I turned around & saw a big present with a bow on top. I remember saying "Ohhhhh, who is this one for? Ohhhhhh, It's me!!!!!!" It was from my dad, just for me. It was a bird cage with a little green parakeet in it. I loved it, I named him Donner, after the reindeer. Then, that year, our dog died, my dad died, & my parakeet died, in that order. It was a rough year, but getting the parakeet was a wonderful memory.
