Being True

The word for Five Minute Friday is: TRUE.   Go…….                                                                                                         IMG_0158

Uh oh. Do I want to do this?

The truth is, my house is never as clean and neat as I want it to be…

I pour over decorating magazines and dream about having it look like those in the pictures.

It will probably never happen. Ever.

I wish I looked like I did in my 20’s, sans the big hair. I want to be more accepting of the fact that I am 45.

The forties are supposed to be great years. Old enough to know, still young enough to do something about it.

That is the thought anyway. Truth is, sometimes I feel like a kid in a middle aged body, some days I have it together and some days I don’t.

I am the most comfortable in jeans and t-shirts. Although, glamming it up once in awhile is fun.

I need to exercise more. Sigh.

I color my hair, because I’ve always been a blond. I didn’t like my hair getting darker as I got older.

I decided to do something about it.

I love my new hairstyle, that I can tuck behind my ears. It is cute and sassy. That is what I tell myself any how.

Truth is, I love to read and write. I love to travel and dream. I love meeting people and hearing stories.

I’m glad I grew up in rural Maryland, lived in east Tennessee for decades, and am now living in the countryside of Ohio.

I am a lover of sunsets and clean, fresh sheets, warm towels straight out of the shower, and wet dog noses.

I love Jesus. I want to understand more. I try to do the right thing.

I teach and I learn and I laugh and I cry and make mistakes.

I make a lot of mistakes.

I yell and I slam around and I sometimes want to act like a two year old….because I can, and sometimes it makes me feel better.

I love watching the weather, and am kind of geeky about it. I also like scary movies and watching NetFlix with my husband.

I’m conservative and I pray and wonder what will happen to our country.

I love my family, even though all of us are imperfect. That is okay.

Truth is, I’m just figuring out life one day at a time.

Five minutes is up…..

  1. I’m a bit older than you, but I too am wondering and wishing about much of the same. Also-just had to mention I lived in Maryland (Annapolis area), went to uni and married a boy from East Tennessee, and had my first daughter in the Buckeye state : ) Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Life is a process of living and learning. But above all we enjoy God’s enfolding love everyday. Thanks for sharing.
