I've been tagged for a meme by, Lori, a mother of 5 children...3 earthly and 2 sweet babies, Molly and Joseph, born and lost at 23 weeks just like our Kinsey and Ryan. Lori has also lost her father, so it seems we have a lot in common.

What I'm told is that a meme in blogland is a series of statements that begin with "I am..."

So, without further ado...

I am a flip-flop lover. Everyday. All day.

I am a leader at school, but not really in life.

I am a thinker, a questioner, and a wonderer. Thank goodness, for My Babe who answers my questions with great patience.

I am scared of opportunity and what could possibly be.

I am a recurrent dreamer of vomit - at least three times a month. Don't ask.

I am completely anal retentive about the placement of the pillows on our couch. Sometimes I think of them at night and know that they are downstairs, out of order.

I am determined.

I am an extreme lover of all animals, elderly, and people with special needs. So much so, that is causes me physical pain to see one of the three in need.

I am stubborn.

I am quick to anger...but working on it.

I am strong on the outside with my grief, but so weak on the inside. I miss my babies with every ounce of my soul, every single second of the day.

I am introverted and shy. I need to learn how to loosen up and have more fun.

I am so in love with My Babe.

I am going to be a mother someday.

What a nice list! Another quality of yours is your great sense of humor. I bet that helped you get through lots of your grief.

You are terrific!

I loved reading this. It was great to get more insight into 'you'.

I also think it is interesting to take the time to think about, "who we are."

Yes, you will be a mother someday. I will hold that belief with you.

I thought about this again later, and realized that I should have said already are a mother, but I understand that you want to be a mother who gets the blessing of raising her children.

Okay... typing too fast. Of course I meant to write, "I should have said that you already are a mother..."

Oh dear...

MEME what an awesome thought.

You are so complex, so human. You are so sweet, so unforgettable. You are a mommy, a wife, a teacher, a friend. You are a risk taker, willing to step out of comfort to stretch and heal (you will never know how this blog is nourishing the lives of others). You are so much of that and a whole lot more. You are invaluable to me-- a writer that has me on the edge of my seat, eyes crying with tears of joy, crying tears of sadness, laughing out loud.

You are a gift from the Almighty.
