I thought I’d slow down for a second and ask a few questions. We’ll call it, “Getting to know each other.” Partly because I often have random things to say and mostly because I wonder about you. I wonder who you are and what gets you through the day.
I don’t know if I’m the only person that thinks about this, but when I drive past houses I wonder about the people that live there. I will wax rhetoric to whoever is in the car with me about the fullness of a life we will never know anything about. The kids smile politely when I go on and on about how important that person is….whoever they are….and they have no idea we exist. But if I’m with other adults they look at me like I’ve lost my ever-lovin-mind.
I can’t help it. I love people. I don’t want to hang around with them, but I love them. Because Christ loves them.
So I wonder about you. Who are you? What makes you tick? What sparks your passion?
I’ll ask a few questions, tell you my answers then, if you want to share, you can answer in the comments. Here we go!
1. Are you right or left handed?
Not a deep question, but we’re just getting started. I am left handed.
2. How many siblings do you have? Where do you fall in line?
Again….just getting to know you. Where you fall tells a lot about you. I grew up with 2 siblings, one brother and one sister. My brother passed away a few years ago so it’s just my sister and I now. But I’ll always think of myself as one of 3. It’s who I am. And, if you hadn’t guessed it already, I was the oldest.
3. What do you do to relax?
Relaxing is rare for me since I never stop. I would say I go to the movies to relax. It makes me be still. If I’m watching a movie at home I work on the computer at the same time. In the theater I am forced to let everything else go for a couple of hours. Of course, it’s not relaxing when the movie is horrible or vulgar. I am careful about what I will watch, but I’m going to confess that I see a lot of movies. Our little theater down the street is only $5 so I see a movie 2-3 times a month.
4. What is something you would like to change about your home?
I have a constant list running in my head. Since I keep it in my head, James is often surprised when I blurt out things like, “We have GOT to replace that chair. It has been irritating me for YEARS!” Years, really? Because I never said anything about it until now and I’m acting like it has to be done tomorrow or someone will die.
I’m not sure what would be first on my important mental list. I’ll have to say two. If we’re talking about something that will actually happen I’d say I want to change the furniture in my bedroom. It needs some tweaking and moving around. If we’re talking huge, probably never going to happen….then I’d have to say my dream of adding on a big living room. I have the plans all ready to go in my mind, but the bank account rolls its eyes every time I mention it.
5. What is one thing you do that you REALLY have a passion for?
We’re getting deep now, right to the heart. That thing that you get excited just thinking about. Even if it’s hard work, you can’t wait to start.
For me it would have to be creating things. I get such a thrill out of the spark of an idea, then the process of creating in my mind and finally turning it into an actual, touch-it-its-real object of beauty. Once it’s done I move on to the next idea. It’s the process that I love so deeply.
Now it’s your turn. I want to know who you are. Answer one or two or ALL of the questions. Whatever you want. Whatever you would like to share. I love getting to know YOU!
