Who am I?

I am, in no particular order -

* someone's sister

* someone's wife

* lost in wonder, love and grace

* the mother of two people

* a teacher

* a very careful driver

* too hard on myself most of the time

* a writer

* a friend

* alternately sad, joy-filled, anxious, lonely, wistful, adventurous, guilty, ecstatic...

* a complainer

* a gossip

* in the middle of my life looking back, looking forward, looking within

* a cousin

* an aunt

* a follower of Christ

* a reader of too many books at once

* a dreamer

* a student

* a niece

* a traveler

* a church member at a large, suburban church

* a regular attendee at a much smaller church in the middle of the city

* wondering what church is supposed to be, do, and look like

* a very light packer

* addicted to prayer, sugar, and collecting art supplies

* jealous of the group heading to Bayonnais, Haiti tomorrow morning

* the holder of a faulty memory

* someone's only daughter

* an art journaler

* an escape artist

* looking for ways to shorten this list

* resisting the urge to go back into this list to clarify the things that are damning and humiliating
