All About Amy
This is a random box of my stuff. I just grabbed stuff near my night stand that I thought represented me. (and of course the cat had to investigate)
I am a woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a mentor, a volunteer, a geek and a woman of faith just to mention a few of the boxes I am in. I have found I am most comfortable in my jeans and a T-shirt wearing ratty old flip flops. I do have a pair of black flip flops that are my "church flip flops" that I try to keep in better condition. I am a mom like all others that would like to be able to do it all, but I have thoroughly accepted that I cannot. I have spent years as an advisor to middle and high school aged young people but am still completely unprepared for my own children to be adolescents. I think that so much in life could be solved by responding and acting with love, and I think I need to take my own advice. I am very good at creating and encouraging community. Long ago I helped my husband lead recreation at several Presbyterian youth events and we have continued to serve in leadership roles at youth events. Things I love: family, laughing, Disney, music, games of all kinds, the beach, the mountains, encouraging other people.
