Five Minute Friday: If you met me

Hop on over Here to see what it's all about, and be sure to leave me a link if you decide to play along!

If you met me, 

you might think I'm a little crazy.  My hair might not be the same the next time you see me, I have a cosmetology license and it doesn't take much to have the urge to change the color or cut or style at any time. My hubby and I have 5 kiddo's under 10 and I wouldn't mind having more if God chooses to bless us in that way.  Our house is always somewhat crazy and noisy unless all the kids are sleeping, but really I like it that way.  I love each of them and how different they are, and it's difficult sometimes don't get me wrong but I truly feel God matches kids and parents up for a reason and I am fascinated each day.

you would find me wanting to know all about you, I love meeting new people and seeing the work God's doing in their lives.  Sometimes it's easier for me to listen than it is for me to talk about what's going on in my life, at least when we're face to face.

you'd see that I am learning to love life and all it's imperfections and oddities.  God is taking me through a season where I'm learning to find the blessing in every situation and giving me some perspective as well about what truly is important.  Our youngest babe is in the hospital and has been off and on for the last 3 months and she is still only 9 pounds after being 7 pounds when she was born 5 months ago.  She is awaiting heart surgery that will most likely happen in about 2 weeks.  It's not been easy but I know that we've done all we can and that God has her (and us) in his hands and loves her more than we do which gives me some peace and helps me not to worry too much.

you would also probably find me in bare feet or mismatched socks....I gave up matching socks a long time ago and I prefer to not wear shoes at all when possible {;0)

Okay it's your turn!


  1. This is so fun! I'm visiting from the five-minute friday link up...and it's fun to really meet people through this :) Praying for your little one!

  2. Just saw you had been following my blog, and I came to check out your page. Saw the story about your littlest one and just wanted to let you know we are adding your family and sweet baby to our prayer list!

    When I have anything hard I am having to deal with - this is the verse I run to for comfort, so I wanted to share with you.

    Psalm 46 - God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

    I also heard recently a story of a mother who was going through a sickness with her child, and she said "My Jesus is the same now as he was before".

    May God hold you in His hands, may you be comforted in the knowledge that the Lord is in this situation, and that many are lifting you and your family up in prayer to the creator of all.

    Love in Him,
    The Taylor Family
