52 Weeks Blogging with a purpose: Who I am

Who am I? That's a great question and something I have been searching to answer now for the past year. This post actually makes me a little on the uncomfortable side because I don't have these specific words to use to describe me. I feel like everyone can explain so nicely about themselves for me, I get stumped.

I am a Wife and a Mother. I couldn't ask for a better set of people to call my family. I love being a Mom, although I didn't always think I wanted to be one. I am blessed to have been awakened to this calling and can honestly say I didn't know this kind of love could every exist. My husband is an amazing man who is so patient with me and loves me so unconditionally. He accepts me for who I am, the good and the bad.

I am a caregiver, teacher and life long learner. I once studied elementary education and for personal reasons I decided not to continue but I am a teacher at heart. I love browsing in the teacher stores and when I felt the calling to home school I knew was a vocation I could not ignore. I really want my children to have a natural curiosity for life and learning.

"Curiouser and curiouser!"

I am a little hippie. I believe in a better world were we can all just get along in peace and love. I think if people really took a step back and saw a life with out greed and power, the idea would catch on but our global society is concerned with material things and money. I have hope that one day I can have my own sustainable farm and not worry about where my food comes from and if it's safe for my family.

I am indecisive all the time. I could never pinpoint what I wanted to "be" when I "grew up". Just when I think I made a commitment to a decision, something pops in to my head and I'm second guessing myself all over again. Maybe this comes from the fact that I am OCD... the mental obsessive kind. My husband handles this very well. I'd like to think that I can do everything. While that isn't going to always be true... I am still free to have many interests!
