Who am I?

In a contemplative mood today, I have been thinking about who I am and what defines me.

You know those women who love pretty clothes and shiny shoes...

Those women who get weekly manicures...

The kind whose husband's have Blue Tooth and play golf in their spare time...

The kind of women who appreciate gourmet food...

The ones who have cutesy little dogs named Schmoopsy...

Whose kids are impeccably behaved and don't have Kool-Aid stains on their coats...(it's actually Hawaiian Punch)

The women who love it when their husbands send them flowers...

The kind who recognize the more refined things in life...

The women who love to hang out with their girlfriends...

The ones who get expensive gifts every day...

Well, I don't think I'm any of those...

Smiles from the farm,


  1. Lisa, you hold the important things in life close to your heart. That is your gift.

  2. Oh Lisa, you are such a lucky girl. All the forementioned things can be bought in any store. Anyone can have them....for a price. What you have can't be bought, it's priceless. I wouldn't trade places with someone in over priced high heels, fake nails and store bought blooms for have a wonderful life and I think you know it too. Hard work and someone who loves you, WONDERFUL and REWARDING, Char

  3. Lisa, I think many a girl out there envies all you have. You have the best that live has to give. Consider yourself lucky, girlfriend....and besides, you have some awful cute kids, there. Hugs, Kathleen

  4. I love who you are!!! Who needs all those other things!!!

  5. It's like reading about myself... minus the goats. Though I have been trying to talk my husband into 1 next year....... ;-)

  6. Heck, girl, simply knowing who you are beats all those things you're not. After I figured out I'm a child of God, everything else just fell into place.

  7. Me neither....and so glad! Your post was great...I thoroughly enjoyed it...all of the thought and time you put into it....really great!!! Have a wonderful day!

  8. Life is Good has a T-shirt that says "Simple is the new Sophistication" I think you need one.
    I like you just the way you are...a lot like me:)
