About Me!!!

I have seen alot of these list on different blogs where you share 10 things that we may not know about you. I have done something like this before, but thought I would play again. 1.... I am a very senstive person. I have had to work on this all of my life. I get my feelings hurt very easily so I build walls around me to protect myself. I have grown alot in this area and I have and am tearing those walls down....2...... I am lefthanded!!! 3..... I am a type 1 diabetic and take 8 insulin shots a day.....4.....I am compasionate about the things that are important to me in life...5....I can not sing or paint and I have always wanted too....6 .....I am only4ft 6inches tall. 7....I love to take care of the ones I love. .....8....As you know I am a Christian, I teach Sunday school, Children's church and work in many other areas of our church......9....I can not drive a car. I have never had the desire to do so......10..... I love blogging because..... It has led me to meet each one of you. You are a very important part of my life. I cannot .wait to get on the computer in the morning to check on each one of you. This is a community of people who truly care about one another. We share our lives with each other. The good times and the sad ones. We also share crafts we make,ideas we have on many different topics,recipes we serve our families and pictures of our familes.Thank you for all the kind words you extend to me each day.

Wonderful list, and great to get to know some personal things about you. I am very sensitive too, and am working very hard on this since I am planning on running for a local city office in the next 2 years. I also have social anxiety which does not go well with politics. You can imagine my dilema! I feel that I have met some wonderful people through blogging as well and I consider you one of them!

That was such an interesting list Mary Isabella...did I tell you how much I love your banner? I think I did, mentioning that SusieQ at RabbitRunCottage would love it...do you mind if I give her your blog address? I am a type II diabetic so I can really feel your pain as it were, lol...luckily I only have to take 4 shots a day...and have learned not to dread it, too. So glad you dropped in...hope you'll be a frequent flyer!
hugs
Sandi

Mary Isabella, I love your list, and I think that we are all kindred spirits here in blogland. I love your blog and I agree, I can't wait to pop on the computer and visit blogs and read my comments. It inspires me every day. My sister says of blogland that it is the perfect world because it is full of kind words, encouragement, and gentle spirits who are careful with us creatives. Thank you for your post. Blessings, Karen

Mmm, I too am a wee bit on the too sensitive side.

My mother was left-handed and two of our grandchildren are.

You certainly are tiny. I thought my 5' 3" was rather short today. But you beat me. :-)

And yes, blogging is a wonderful addition to life, is it not?

That was a lot of fun to read. You sound busy in your church like we are in ours. I'm glad you're able to start tearing down that wall you were talking about. It's tough being sensitive and growing that hard shell around the heart.

I had to have a physical for insurance purposes today. The nurse said to me as she was taking my height, "So you're about 5'6?" I said, "I've always been 5'3" so she measured again. Guess what, at 38 years old I've grown taller. And I've so enjoyed being short! But at least my height to weight ratio is more even now, LOL. I guess I was just trying to relate to another short person with my story... Blessings, Polly

ShabbyInTheCity said...

A very sweet person everyone! She is a hard worker in the church and leads our bible school with skill and love!

What a wonderful way to get to know you! My son has been a type 1 diabetic since he was 11. Glad it can be managed but he says he feels like a pin cushion!
Have a peaceful Sunday

You're only 4'6" tall??? My gosh, woman. You are TINY! (My daughter tops out at around 4'11". She'd love to meet someone who could make her feel tall (someone outside of 1st grade, that is. lol).
I'm left handed, too. It's always amazed me how people can write with their right hand. ha,ha

These were interesting "things" to learn about you. Great list!
