Doncha just love getting to know more personal things about other people? You can see my furniture, but who really am I? Does my blood run aqua? Am I skinny on the inside? Ice there Sonic ice running through my veins?
So I thought I’d go a little deeper today. Three things that might make you feel like you know me better. Then I hope you’ll share some with me too.
1. I’m very quiet. Not shy, just quiet. And I don’t mean just that I don’t say much, but my volume. I move softly and I speak quietly. In fact, we’re pretty quiet at our house as a whole. Considering there are 11 people here every second of every day…..it’s pretty darn peaceful. But I’m also quiet in that I don’t say much. If someone else is talking a lot I won’t interrupt. So if you’re chatty, it can take a while to get to know me.
2. I am my parents oldest child. First born. OK, I’ll just say it…..I’m bossy. I like things the way I like them and that’s it. I have matured enough in 47 years to stop expecting other people to agree with me, but I’m still not very bendy. Eating out, for example, I just want to go to the places I know and eat the same meal every time. I don’t care for adventure in my dining and that’s all there is to it.
3. OK, I’d better think of something that makes me sound more appealing. Oh! I love to dance. Dance might be the wrong word. It’s more like jumping around being joyful with no real talent. I don’t mind breaking into dance anywhere. In a store, in the car, at a conference. Just yesterday I was waiting for the girls at Walmart and I opened a card that started playing music, so I started dancing….all by myself….right in the middle of the store. Life’s too short to worry about what other people think. If you ever feel like dancing….I’ll dance with you!
Speaking of conferences, I’m headed to a one next month where I will probably exhibit all of these 3 things. Quiet, a little bossy and dancing whenever I feel like it. I’m looking forward to meeting some new, Christian bloggers and taking a few days to reflect on God’s plan for my blog. I need that every once in a while.
I am doing my first market of this kind while I’m there. I’ll have lots of pretties from my shop that I’m excited to show.
Now it’s your turn! What 3 things can you share that will help us get to know you better?
