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 used to teach, which meant words and kids all day long.  Now I stay home with my kids, which means 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’m usually at a loss for how to write about that.  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 from 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.”

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