I like words.

The spoken kind and the signed kind and the written kind.  The English kind and the languages-I-pretend-to-know kind.  The hard-to-understand toddler kind and the that-person-is-so-smart thesis kind.

I like my kids.  A lot.  (And my husband, too.)  I teach part-time, which means words and kids all day long.  When I’m not teaching I’m home with my kids, the same kids every day speaking the same words over and over.  It’s delightful.  It’s exhausting.  Not necessarily in that order.

I like the people who have it all together.  And I especially like the people who aren’t afraid to admit that they don’t.  I fall into that second category.  I couldn’t pass for the former if I tried, so I stopped trying a long time ago.

Jesus is my Savior.  I like that most of all. I’m usually at a loss for how to write about that saving in a way that hasn’t been done better by someone else.  It’s so beautiful and important to me that I have a difficult time pinning my faith down into something concise and pertinent and readable.

The name of this page is inspired by 1 Thessalonians 3:12.  It says, “May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.”  The tagline is inspired by the baskets of laundry I should be folding instead of typing this.

Oh, and I like people who read my blog.  I especially like people who read the last line of the “About Me” section.  Wow, you’re thorough. 🙂
