6-Word Memoir

Well, before reading Bek's full blog, I knew I'd be tagged and already started thinking of lines. The one that I came up with and liked happened to be very close to the one that her other friend, Devon, came up with, but I'm using it anyway! I guess great minds (who happen to have the same name) think alike! You're supposed to do a 6-word memoir of yourself. Here's mine:

Work in progress in many ways.

Not too inventive or creative in wording...however, it has much in meaning to me. I actually thought of it because I have a materinty shirt that says "WORK IN PROGRESS." I'm a work in progress inside and out. I'm a work in progress as I grow this little baby in my womb. I'm a work in progress daily as I try to be more like Jesus (or say I'm trying...sometimes it's only words, but I try...). I'm a work in progress as I learn to manage a household and a 2-year-old. Yeah, I'm not trying to get that one mastered right now. I figure it will all go out the window once Conrey comes. I'm a work in progress as I learn how to be the woman I need to be for my husband. I am a work in progress as I learn how to teach my daughter life lessons, life skills, about the wonderful world around her, and most importantly as I try to instill the love of Jesus in her precious heart. I am a work in progress as I try to find time for God. I'm miserable at this and let me tell you, I have a LOT of work to do in this area. I am a work in progress as I learn time management. I am a work in progress as I learn to adjust to Mark's new schedule.

I AM A WORK IN PROGRESS.

Let me tell you, the list could go on and on. I have much work to do and know that some things are life-long learning, while others will be mastered or will be passed by as life changes around me and they are no longer a challenge. It has been said that if you're not moving forward, you're moving backward. There is no idleness in the world of self progress. I'm gonna keep moving forward. :)

Oh, yeah...now I'm supposed to tag people. I'm gonna do what Bek did and just say that you all need to do it! :) Come up with a 6-word line about yourself and then explain it. Then tag people. The end. :)

Ok, I must be really ignorant. All these years that I've known you and I had no idea you spelled your name that way. Thanks for sharing your blog!

Hey Dev, I'm glad you guys made it back from your trip safe and sound. We just got back from Mexico, too, and had a great time. It was windy while we were there, too, but it was at least very warm! I wanted to thank you for your kind words & shout out. That meant so much and touched my heart. Thanks for your excitment, prayers, and your great friendship! It just means so much to me! I hope that you are feeling even better by now! We need to do lunch sometime after you are done with daycare on Wednesdays. Have a great day and thanks again. Love ya, Holly
