Who’s writing this blog ?
My name is Missy, and I am a sinner who’s life has been redeemed by Christ.
I am the wife of Jon, and the mother of David, Audrey, Michael, Helen, Daniel and Maggie.
We are a family of Americans, thickly marbled with Norwegian, living in Canada. I am also a Southern girl, though the South is scandalized by my yankee accent.
I have lived in eleven area codes in my life. In California, the coast of Massachusetts, the deep South and the Midwest. If I were instructed to move “home”, I would not know where to go. Maybe to my car.
I am a home-schooling mom, living a migratory life, hoping to make up for some of the time I squandered in my youth by using the time I have been given better. By reading and serving my family and taking the little gifts and talents which have been given to me, and using them well.
As I approach the various objectives which will be chronicled and measured on this blog, I think that to be truly thankful for all the mercies and kindness which have been poured out on me is my real ambition. To remember that the ability to read a book, to run a mile or more in the early morning, to parent children and see them flourish and grow into fascinating adults are big fat gifts for which I am to be always thankful. To learn to never complain, to always remember to articulate my thankfulness, and to give out as much as has been given to me…..this seems like a worthwhile objective. So, I’ll aim for that .
And I love it when people leave comments on my blog.
