It’s been more than a week now, but I was tagged by Valerie from "her Little Ways" to share a post revealing 5 little known facts about me. What a fun idea, I thought- but what could possibly be interesting enough about me to bother sharing?!?!?!?!?
Here’s my list—
1. I am one of four children- the third girl, followed closely by my little brother, the only boy of the family. We were all raised Catholic, faithfully attending Mass together as a family throughout most of my childhood. Sadly, I am the only one of my siblings that is still Catholic.
2. Though I struggle a lot with many virtues (patience, trust, humility, etc….) God has blessed me with two that come very naturally to me-- honesty and modesty. I have never understood the benefit of lying and have never been very good at it. The guilt eats me alive and shows all over my face- so you can be sure that if I say something- it really is true. Even as a child I was very modest. One of my favorite pictures from my youth shows me, my closest-in-age sister, and my brother all lined up in the bathtub. I am probably three years old (my sister 4, my brother 2). They are both sitting up smiling for the camera but I am hunched over in the middle with my arms wrapped around covering myself up and looking uncomfortable. And now? Tim and I have been married for over 16 years and I still go into the bathroom and shut the door to get dressed every morning.
3. I have given each of my children nicknames. And for some of the kids, I use their nicknames more often than their real names. It would be so easy to give my children anonymous blog names I’m not sure why I haven’t.
4. I am a movie star! My children got involved last year in an amateur movie making group and I was asked to do a small role in one of their movies. That one little scene was so much fun that I ended up appearing in 4 of their movies! My latest role was the goofy front desk clerk in a “time travel port.”
5. I just got my wisdom teeth pulled last week. I am finally off the painkillers and (pretty much) back to normal. I know most people have their wisdom teeth removed in their late teen years but I just never got around to it until now….
That’s it! I hope it was interesting. And now you know me a teeny tiny bit better! Thanks so much to Val for inviting me to participate!
