I've seen this on a few other blogs before, and thought I'd try it too...

I am....deep, thoughtful, real, tender, hopeful, beautiful, and ever-changing by the grace of God.

I have....a husband, a son, a house, a dog, a new car - and I'm still wanting more.

I want....a baby girl.

I fear....my sister and I never having the kind of close relationship I have always hoped to share with her.

I would....love to go back to Israel for another trip.

I don't....journal as often as I probably should.

I did....fall in love - twice.

I didn't....finish college.

I will....go skydiving someday.

I won't....eat anything with onions in it.

I can....sing opera. Though my voice is slightly out of shape.

I can't....allow myself to dream about what it might be like to sing opera again somewhere. Even for a small show or local theater.

I could....be an event planner. Or a personal shopper. Or an interior decorator. I could be a great many things other than just a bookkeeper.

I couldn't....be a stay-at-home mom full time. I've tried and it's not for me.

I always....have my toenails painted.

I never....thought I would marry someone like Todd. But I did - and I so LOVE our life together.

I hate....doing the dishes!

I believe....that we all heal differently. And it has taken me 15 years to find the kind of healing I have needed in order to be able to really live.

I imagine....that my mom looks down from heaven and smiles when she sees me. Imagining that bring some sense of comfort to my constant grief of not having her here.

I regret....not having my own wedding dress when I got married. It was borrowed and it was just okay.

I speak....the truth. And I will continue speaking it, bringing things to light and naming what is true. Because it's who I am and who I was called to be.

I sing....in the shower, at church, in my car, to Tommy and with my family. I sing everywhere.

I write....because I love to. It's a passion of mine and has been since I was young.

I enjoy....autumn. It's my favorite time of year.

I eat....until I'm full. It's a new concept, but I think I've caught on.

I drink....water. The only soda I have anymore these days is Sprite. I've kind of lost the taste for sodas I guess.

I like....big earrings, chocolate, tattoos and shoes.

I wish....we could win the lottery and never have to worry about money ever again.

I hope....in Jesus. My life is covered by the hope of the cross.

I remember....what it felt like to see a positive sign on a pregnancy test.

I enjoy....swimming, laughing, entertaining, and shopping.

I miss....my mom.

I feel....alive, full, and energized.

I work....all day long and then go home and cook dinner and do laundry and pick up toys. I work a lot.

I dream....of one day owning a bed and breakfast with my husband.

I see....a few gray hairs popping up here and there.

I hear....my son's laughter and it fills me up with a certain measure of joy that I can't even begin to describe.

I know....that God is good (SO good) even in the times it has felt like He wasn't.

I love....the beach, sunrises, quiet mornings, conversation with good friends, having a place to call home, and music.

I am....me.
