This post might make you uncomfortable.

Here's a little something about me that you may or may not know.

I am a common denominator.

  • There are people I don't get along with. More than one or two. It's because of me.
  • There are people I do get along with that a lot of people don't. It too, is because of me.
I'm the same everywhere.
  • My language doesn't change when I'm at church, at home, in the super market or at work.
  • My personality is what it is. I am not an act.
  • You get what you get and you don't throw a fit. I am who I am.
I am going to believe what you tell me.
  • Lie to me. Tell me the truth. Most likely I'm going to buy it. DO NOT BE SURPRISED when I am surprised you are doing something you told me you don't do.
I love almost everyone--to a fault.
  • chance after chance after chance I'm probably going to be your friend again.
  • hurt me once, shame on you. hurt me twice, shame on me.
  • There is a lot of shame on me.
  • But I'll be your friend again.
Do you need my help? You go it.
  • I won't clean your house or pack it up last minute for you to move, but if you need anything else? I'm your girl.
You want me to pick you over my family?
  • I'm going to pick my family.
You're family? 
  • I'll pick my husband and children over my siblings and my Dad {and Mom}. Everyday--Every time.
  • I'll pick my Dad {and Mom} over my siblings. Everyday--Every time.
My best friend lives in Butler PA and I met her blog stalking. I'm a stalker. Don't be scared.

I will not lie to you. I will not sugar coat something that needs to be made very clear. Spades are black, they're shaped like shovels. That being said, I'm not out to hurt every one's feelings and offend them. Sometimes I do hurt feelings and offend people. It's typically not over something I said that needed to be said.

I am a loud mouth. 
I lack a filter. 
Sometimes I act, sometimes I react.
If you knew all the things I didn't say, you might not want to be my friend.

I take my temple covenants seriously.

Do not accuse me of not caring about my family.
Do not mess with my children. 
Do not talk to my children about an issue you have with me. 

Obviously, I contradict myself also.

I strive everyday to be a better person. To do a good turn. To make sure my family knows I love them. I pray for each of them by name. Even siblings I haven't spoken with in over a year. Even family that won't admit to reading this blog.

Love me or hate me. Be offended or my friend.

You are free to choose.

You know, this is why I actually love you! Because I'm kind of the same way. I'd rather be totally blunt and say what I'm thinking then hide everything. I never mean to offend or hurt people but when you have no filter it happens sometimes. I'd rather someone say something to my face then say it behind my back and then me find out later. It's a refreshing quality and sometimes gets both of us in trouble. I remember feeling bad for hurting someone with something I said when I didn't mean offense and I can't remember where I read it in the scriptures but the gist of the scripture was: If you offend someone when offense wasn't meant then the sin is on the offended person's head. Keep on being you because you are awesome!

I love this post because it reminds me of some of the reasons I love you so much. (You are you no matter where you are...that's one of my favorites.)

Anyone who isn't willing see what a blessing you are in their lives can eat my shorts.

Love you!!

I'm pretty sure that if I was writing this post I would have said the exact same things.
