Thursday Thirteen


Thirteen Things About Me
(In Honor of My Birthday. Hey It's My Blog, I Can Do What I Want!)
1. I was born on June 25, 1982.
2. I weighed exactly 9 lbs. My poor mother only weighed 127 lbs when she went to the hospital to have me, and she had me naturally. My mom is truly a hero!
3. I was supposed to be born on June 10, which is my parents anniversary, but I decided I wanted my own day. So the doctors finally induced labor on June 24. That's right my mom was in labor with me for over 24 hours. I was holding out for MY day. (Once again, I really think my mom is a hero)
4. I have always had big eyes and long eyelashes. My eyes were the biggest part of me for a long time.
5. I only weighed 13 lbs at a year old. They took me to Chapel Hill to check me out, but they said I was healthy and that I was just going to be petite. Well, I kept the short part of petiteness, but the underweight thing went right out the window!
6. I grew up in a Christian school. Most of my classmates were in my class from kindergarden through 12th grade (some I was glad to be with, some not so much, but you get what you get I guess!)
7. I started singing when I was just a little kid. There are videos of me singing at church plays when I was like 3 or 4.
8. I still sing every chance that I get.
9. I have loved to read for as long as I can remember, and I actually pretty much taught myself to read before I ever started school. The first book I ever read through on my own was "Go Dog Go"
10. I also love to write and I'm hoping that one day someone will love to read the books that I write!
11. Even if I'm never published, I will still love to write.
12. I'm currently single, and I'm holding out for the hero that I know God has for me!
13. And last but not least I will be 24 years old on Sunday, and I must say that I can hardly believe it!

Happy birthday a little early! I think it's a sign of a writer when someone writes regardless of whether or not they get published. It's in your blood!

Happy birthday for Sunday! That’s also my father-in-law’s birthday, while 10 June (the day you should have been born) is the day Husband and I first kissed! So many important dates in common!

Have a great day!

You know what? Reading this was really a blessing for me - my baby was only slightly over 16 lbs at a year, and we've had to have her tested for all sorts of scary things. It's really given me hope that she's okay, too! Good list!

Mom Nancy said...
