Defining Oneself

 2014.04 choir3

Julie Bain, in an article for the April 2015 “The Rotarian” magazine, prefaced it with an interesting method of defining oneself.  Following her pattern, here is my attempt.  Try it yourself!


Being cradled by Daddy in a rocking chair

Sorting pretty stones

Frightened of blowing away in a high wind

Asking Jesus into my heart

Playing cowboys and Indians with capguns

Playing piano at church

Teaching third grade Sunday School class

Singing in the college Chorale

Cheerleading the Roberts Raiders to victory

Falling in love

Earning a MSLS and MRS titles in the same month

Baby powder smell

First dog turned me into an animal lover

Driving children

Always singing

Online database searching

Husband unfaithful

Confession made and forgiveness given

Moving trucks brought ladder climbing

Whale watching

Entertaining business and personal friends, family

Beach walks

Grandchildren came from around the world

Lost daughter to cancer

Husband succumbed to adultery

Reinvented as a Rotarian

Singing praise

God and dog are woman’s best friends

Life of (JOY)
