If you really knew me...

I was blogging this morning and then came across a blog that I hadn't read before, it was nice getting to know the blogger behind the blog. She invited others to join in, so I did.  Thank you Shannon over at Shannonhearts.blogspot.com, for the inspiration. 

If you really knew me,
 you would know that I have three children {Here} who are the light of my world. I am so completely blessed that God gave them to me for this time. You would know that I homeschooled all of them for two years and loved it.

If you really knew me,
 you would know that I have  been married for 15 years to
a wonderful guy who amazes me with his spirit every day, especially lately.

If you really knew me,
you would know that I had a bit of a heath scare earlier in the year and I Praise God that I am feeling better, and that on the spot I gave up red meat and caffeine for my health.

If you really knew me, you would know that when I am sad, I get quiet.
I will want to reach out but often don't.

If you really knew me,
you would know that I am job hunting right now
and am completely frustrated especially because
 I hate rejection of any kind.

If you knew me,
 you would know that losing my job in May
was a super hard blow and crushed me deeply.
I had never lost a job and even though it was for downsizing reasons,
it didn't make it any less personal or painful.

If you really knew me,
 you would know I have the biggest heart for people,
that I am compassionate.

If you really knew me,
you would know that at this moment I am stressed and sad
and holding on to my faith
that God has me and my situation.

If you really knew me,
you would know that I want to run in the
Color Me Rad 5k next year.

If you really knew me,
you would know that I want to do good, and
make a difference in the lives of others, no matter how small.

If you really knew me,
You would know that starting this blog
was actually a brave thing for me because I am shy and worry
about what others think.

I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little better.  I would love to know more about you, so I invite you to jump in and blog about you, or leave a comment with a link so I can read all about what makes you...You!

Happy weekend loves...

I enjoyed reading this, Janine! I am shy, worry about what others think, and hate rejection of any type as well. Just takes extra trust in God to get us through things that challenge those aspects of our personalities!
