Tagged! 7 Weird Random Things About Sparky ♥ ∞

SoulBrush tagged me to write seven weird random facts about myself.

1. I have faith in Jesus Christ first, foremost and always. Faith in Him has helped keep me sane in an insane and often unfair world. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

2. I love my husband with all my heart. He is truly my split-apart and kindred spirit. We've had a wonderful life together and I pray that God will allow us many more. I am his first wife (tee hee - he always jokingly says that) and he is my second husband. Our 30th Anniversary is next August 11th. I think he has something in the works already ... ??

3. I'm pretty easy going, smile easily, try to be generous to those less fortunate and don't like meanness or bullies. But I don't suffer fools lightly and don't tolerate laziness. But I do try to be kind to others no matter their attitude towards me. "A gentle word turnth away wrath ...."

4. I *!*LOVE*!* motorcycling (I'm a motorcyclist, not a 'biker' - I'll explain the difference for anyone interested). I'm really good with mechanical things and am a good rider. One feels so free on two wheels. It's just like flying on the ground! Wahoo! "Four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul." Amen!

5. My adopted mother died when I was 10. I was physically and mentally abused by my adopted father. The pain of his angry words still haunt me sometimes. The scars of his evil never leave and sometimes I revert to my old morbid self in self-defense (real or perceived) like a 10 year old child. I apologize for that. All I can add in my defense is that I am one of God's Projects Under Construction.

6. I enjoy my 1970's rock and classical music. It soothes me. "Music calms the savage beast." Although I can sing, I'm not truly musically inclined.

7. I'm really, really good at research and following a paper trail, whether it's following a person or an accounting trail. For me, genealogy and accounting go hand-in-hand. Following out something like that is similiar to a good Agatha Christie mystery. I've been granted special recognitions at some of the places I've worked for my talents. It's a gift.

Guess I'm kinda boring but I try to always be a nice person with a good sense of humor.

I am suppose to tag others but I think this madness will stop with me . [lol - just teasing SoulBrush] Just too tired this week. I'm just not 'in the zone' right now. I think I have Election Day Hangover from all the stress and turmoil, plus Maxie had me worried. It'll pass. I watched this video by Assemblies of God. This 10 minute speech cheered me up but I'm still tired.

Next time I'll tag others with glee. ♥ ∞

I wouldn't say you are boring. Your blog is very entertaining and witty. I too have issues of my childhood and I too have chosen to rise above and create anew because I am incharge now!!! :)

Janeen said...

Don't we all have baggage?! Oh yes, sister in Christ! This was a great post, thanks for sharing of yourself! How is Maxie doing today, post recovery?

Sparky ♥ ∞ said...

Thanks Melody. I always feel like I'm boring compared to other people.

Yeah, you're right, we all have baggage Janeen, that's why I try not to make a big deal about mine. :o) I'm nobody special and know it.

Thanks for asking about Maxie ... she is fine today just really sore. Stitches come out in 2 weeks. Poor kid can't sit in my lap though (her fav thing). Just sits propped up on her favorite toy and sighs occasionally. Dogs have so much personality. ♥ ∞

Your blog has left me breathless, as did your comment on mine. Thank you very much for coming by and if it is alright with you, I will add you to my listings and pop in here every so often. Have a blessed day.

OT but I just read a comment by you, in Pappy's blog and I wanted to come over and say... I loved it, in a sad way. {Your comment went something like, do we start dismantling the Statue of Liberty now or wait till the...} Yeah, good question. :-(

I enjoyed learning more about you, and not a weird or random fact among them! It seems we have a lot in common! Esp. #1,2, and 3. The fact that we all have baggage means we can empathize with one another. And by rising above it, we are insuring it stops with us and doesn't get passed down, which is a worthy thing indeed. Sometimes it is true that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, but it still leaves scars in the most unexpected places.
