So, I have started a blog and apparently you would like to know a bit more about me.
I am the eldest of 4 children born to my parents. I was born at Christmastime in 1981, I have a brother who is fifteen months younger, a sister who is 5 years younger than me and our youngest brother died aged 15 days when I was 8, in June 1990.
I guess my family falls into the category of ‘working class’ when we go into viewing people through the class system. My family home is a three bedroom terrace rented from a housing association and therefore classed as ‘social housing’. My family have lived in the same house, in the same quiet village, since 1986.
My brother, sister and I are Christians, brought up going to church/chapel with our grandparents, our path went over some rocky ground but we’re over it and walking a smoother path this side. My blog posts will cover my story of the rocky ground and how we found the smoother path again. We are now part of a large, active church, often attending 2 or 3 services each on a Sunday.
Hopefully through the blog I will be able to paint a more detailed and colourful picture of who I am, what makes me tick and the people who I trust with the task of holding me together. God’s blessings in my life number too many to count and for that I’m grateful.
Right now I’m living what I think and hope will be the most exciting chapter so far. Two weeks before Christmas 2011 in a gorgeous hotel the man I love got down on bended knee and asked me to marry him. Hopefully, all being well, in April 2013, I will be a married woman enjoying the adventure a God-given marriage is 🙂
