Music - whether I like it or find it sometimes uncomfortable and even a bit irritating - is the language of my soul. I find myself thinking in music more often than not...seeing the world in color and sound. My husband, Rob, bless the man, had no idea what he was getting into when he married me. He has learned to read me and my moods through the songs that are coming out of me....I sing what I am feeling more often than not - using my music to convey what I cannot communicate. He has also learned that my need to bang out my thoughts on the piano is no respecter of person or hour - having been wakened at all hours of the night to the sound of my fingers pouring out the feelings I cannot quite put into words - sometimes soft and sweet, others? Not so much. Poor man...:)
I do not record as much as I like as home is chaotic, at best. Limited time and sketchy background volume limit my time and ability to record as much as I like. Still...love singing and need to sing as intensely as breathe. So you WILL see me around here...just may be some long intervals.
A few basic facts about me:
~ Redhead with ALL the insanity that goes with...a twinkle in my eye and always up for a bit of mischief.
~ Mom to 10 kids (who unfortunately, inherited MY insanity. Fun times!) The insanity continues in my grandbaby...little chunk-a-monk and cutest thing ever. She has her mama's eyes and her Grama's propensity for shenanigans! I wonder what the next little one - incubating as I type - will bring to the mix?
~ Herder of 3 dogs AND 2 cats AND tons of fish and chickens (and a healthy crop of house mice that seem to think this is THEIR castle...we are currently in negotiations.).
~ Yes, I am fluent in chaos and mile-a-minute kidese.
~ Wife to an amazing man who loves me completely just as I am but also loves me towards becoming more than I ever dreamed! I know I am loved because God gave me Rob before I even knew how much I really need him...one of my greatest gifts.
~ RED is my favorite color and fettuccine alfredo my all-time favorite dinner.
~ Daughter of the King. Perhaps not some huge important cog in the grand scheme of life, but worth enough, VALUABLE enough that the Creator of the Universe came and sought me out. Loved me. Gave ALL He had just so I can love Him...so I can live with Him...KNOW Him intimately. WOW!
~ Incredibly flawed. Sometimes broken. Often confused. Pretty much NEVER without hope and an almost annoying sense of optimism.
~ Oh, and I STILL believe in Santa Claus.
Thank you so much for taking a minute to wander onto my front porch. I look forward to meeting and listening to you all! Now, let's get to business....let's get singing!
