This but That

I want so much to be balanced. To be serious but fun. To be steady but adventurous. To be detailed but compassionate. To be focused yet relaxed. I want to be smarter. I want to have a better memory. I want to be patient. I want to be deeper. I want to reflect Christ. I want to be pure. I want to be fun without being frivolous.

I want to be unable to be defined by a single word.  Unless of course that word is "balanced." ;-)  But no, really.  I want to be a person who is neither extreme nor indistinguishable.  I in no way want to be average.  I want to be painted in a mosaic of bold colors and crisp lines.

I am at my root a person of contradictions.  The greatest of which involves the fact that is can be very hard to see.  I have a sweet candy shell that hides it all very nicely.

So tell me, what words would you use to describe me?  What words would you like to hear describing YOU?

1000 words

They say a picture is worth 1000 words.  Here is my 1000 word answer to my third question. Who do I want to be?  This pic shows a balance of romance and family that just about slapped me in the face when I saw it.  I love it.
(except my husband would never wear a tucked in polo shirt)
