My name is Cheryl and I am married to my college sweetheart (Big J) who challenges me, encourages me, and has yet to bore me. I have two amazing children (Little J and Little E), both of whom are adopted. They keep me on my toes and make me laugh often. I eat a bit of dark chocolate almost every day, love jigsaw puzzles, and I don’t ever like to lose sight of land. I’m also a home-schooling mama, a sometimes foster mom, a writer, and a toilet-bowl-cleaner procrastinator.
Hopefully, as you read bits of who I am you will feel like you are not alone, or have a good laugh or a good cry, perhaps see things from a different perspective. My intention is never to be hurtful, but to be as true as I know how. After all, as I often tell my husband, words matter.
The problem is that it’s hard to get those words right, even when we really try. We might use the same word but mean entirely different things. Our language is woefully limited, but I still believe that words matter. Hope you enjoy reading few of mine.
Quick key to who we are:
Big J – my hubby
Little J – my son
Little E – my daughter
Cheryl – well, me, Cheryl
