Linking up with Lisa-Jo again! This time, it gets personal...
If you met me, you'd probably notice that I'm shy at first. I like to look, to feel it out, and then react. You'd notice that my husband takes over the conversation, that I tend to interject and then become more of myself after he has warmed up. You'd notice that I can't seem to get away from my daughter, that I show her off more than I'd probably like to admit. At some point, I'd probably seem confident. Trust me, it's mostly an act that I end up believing. I'd most likely correct your grammar a few *hundred* times and then blow your mind by making references to Stargate, Lord of the Rings, and Disney. I just might talk about my favorite bloggers or cloth diapers, depending on how the conversation steered. But you would also see me trying to figure you out, learning you and your favorites. Your heart. How you relate to the people you love, how you relate to God. If you even believe in Him. And maybe my heart would open just a little...maybe you'd get a peek at what really makes me who I am. Ya know, if I actually get over my little girl. :)
Confession: I restarted my timer after the first sentence or two because my husband was reading over my shoulder. And I got terrible "stage fright." But I finished before my timer went off the second time, so maybe it doesn't count? ;)
