I can use a variety of descriptions to give insight into who I am and what my various roles are: a Christian, a pastor’s wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a gardener, a coffee-lover, etc. However, I am often most identified with my role as a mother to nine amazing kids. I could never have predicted this role, but I treasure it! I have five boys and four girls, and as of this writing have gained a beautiful daughter-in-law and our first granddaughter.
At this season of life, I am in the transitional phase of having children that have grown and have moved on to their adult lives, and yet I am still mothering many little ones that are living under our roof. I delight in seeing each of my children “do their thing”, and I spend many hours watching basketball, volleyball, dance, track, cross-country, musical events, and theatrical performances. In addition to supporting my kids in their activities, I enjoy camping with my family, working in my yard and garden area, baking, and singing on my church’s worship team.
I like organizing and doing laundry, but I don’t care for dusting! I like to start my day with a freshly brewed latte, and end my day with a cup of hot tea. I like popcorn and movies, but a good book and a comfy couch would be my choice any day! I resonate with Jane Austen’s quote: “Ah! There is nothing like staying at home, for real comfort.”
