Self Reflections

"


Christy from Just Thinkin' and Lisa from The Sarcastic Lab Rat have started a new meme. This one is called Self Reflections Tuesday. It's all about us, as bloggers, not our kids and husbands and pets and other random stuff. Go on over to one of the host blogs to read all about it!

Today's Theme: Introduce yourself! Show us a self-portrait and list 5 things you like about yourself. And we are looking for things you really like ... not just 'I like that I'm a mommy'.

Here I am....



and here I go.........

1. I like that I make people laugh. (usually on purpose!)

2. I like that I am a very loyal friend. Once we are true, bonded friends, we always will be.

3. I like that I am a very kind person, but not a doormat. I am nice, but I don't take crap. Mess with me or my family, you will see my ugly side.

4. I like that I am a very caring person who volunteers her time to help others, human and animal.

5. I like that, with the wisdom of old age, I have accepted my flaws, worked on the ones I can or want to change, and learned to live with the ones I can't...or just don't want to change! =)

There you have it!
Go check out the other Self Reflections and then join in the fun!

Great post. Not too many things that you have to think & think & think just to get them answered. Loved your top 5, some great things for sure!

Stopped by and read your self reflections--very inspiring. I liked the idea that this one wasn't all about the kids. I need to do more of that.

Loved it! You're rocking that pic too by the way. Also had no idea that we were state neighbors. We should try to work it out where we could do lunch.

#3 is me to a tee! I am kind and do anything I can to help a person but refuse to be taken advantage of!
