For Your Information...

While I was reading some great posts today by some new friends, I was thinking about how little I know about them. What is great about the blog world is you really get to see a person's heart and their feelings before you know what they look like or what talents they may have. I find myself drawn to a writer's honesty and humor and their faith in the Lord. Many times I've read a post without even knowing what the author looks like.

If only we were judged that way in our everyday world. Being the mother of a Preteen girl, I am reminded constantly of my teenage days and how unfortunately too much judgement is made on one's appearance, wealth or talent. No one takes the time to get to know some one first and then decide whether they would like to be friends. One bad hair day, one bad outfit, one huge zit, one embarrassing moment can make or break you sometimes. But that is a whole different subject for another day.

I was just thinking, I might let you into my world just a little more. If you are curious about who the real "Mich" is then keep on reading. If you are related to me or know me pretty well, then you might enjoy this trip down memory lane. So here I go. "Thirty five random facts about me" just for your information.

1. My favorite color is rose pink. I usually say green, because I do not believe there is an ugly shade of green and because I am picky on the shade of pink. I like the color of dark pink roses.

2. My favorite number is "26." Both my birthday and my anniversary are on that number date.

3. I am a Preacher's Kid. And a Missionary kid.

4. I have two children. One girl and one boy.

I confess, as much as anyone anyone of my gender really knows a person of the other and particularly his daughter, I think I know you, and did most of your 35, however, I enjoyed the discovery of some new facts, which I will properly log for future reference and use when ole dad needs to MAKE points! Little HA there, for I always feel my POINTS are overflowing!

When you mentioned your conversion, I could not help but remember it was at church camp, and mom and I were with you at the altar, and it WAS ON OUR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY, JUNE 26TH, YES, THE DATE THAT WOULD BE YOURS, TOO! WHAT A PRESENT THAT WAS!

I love who you are,

Hey Mich!

Thanks for sharing.

I also like Pride and Prejudice, but I like the 1940s version with Greer Garson…she is so lovely.

I also like old stuff with history.

AND my James is also my favorite book of the Bible!

This was so much fun, Mich. I don't know yet if I have a favorite book in the Bible, but James is on the list.

Sounds like you got a wide and varied exposure to all types of people when you were younger. THat must've been hard and good, all at once.

That Jim-Dad...he's somethin', ain't he. I already knew these. But I have to say that baby poop green is a pretty nasty shade of green. Just sayin'. But to each his own.

Oh...and love ya, too.

What a great list. I do feel like I know you a lot better. But especially since I just read your last 4 posts all at one time. I am so behind in stopping by my new friends. Summer has me busier than school time. It was kinda nice spending a bit more time here. I like you! :)

Amy said...

It was so neat to get to read about you. I can definitely relate to the road trip filled with cars reality show :)
Have a praise filled day.

Amy said...

Instead of cars that should have said 'kids'

(Hee Hee! Can you tell I am trying to talk to my kids and type at the same time )
