7 Facts About Me
March 20, 2012 in: Reflections on the River
1. When I was a kid, my mom forced me to work in the garden and I loathed every minute. Now, the garden is one of my favorite spots on earth. This time of year, when I go home for lunch I usually slip out to my little plot to pull a few weeds and map my planting strategy.
2. I’m looking forward to getting to heaven and being able to sing in a beautiful voice, play an instrument and clap in rhythm. Until then, I’ll just sing really loud in the car and appreicate those who graciously share their musical talent.
3. In college, I majored in agriculture because I really enjoyed the classes, professors, classmates and being an aggie. I minored in journalism knowing it would be my career. I didn’t like journalism classes all that much, although the practicum experience working on the campus newspaper was well worth it.
4. The most exciting adventures of my life have been mission trips – Mexico, Panama, tornado-ravaged Joplin, innercity Cincinnati, Enemy Swim Indian Reservation. I would love someday to take a mission trip to a nation closed to the gospel even though I am a huge fraidy cat.
5. There was a time in my life when I didn’t have a landline telephone, cable television or internet. I’m not Amish, just cheap. I have since upgraded to having internet. This explains why I’m so avid about updating my Facebook status (join me, please, at Susan Mires Writer) and why I read lots of books and listen to the radio.
6. I am the youngest of eight children and grew up on a farm in Northwest Missouri.
7. My greatest dream in life is to be a wife and mother. I am discovering that sometimes, God reveals himself in answered prayer. Other times, He answers our heart’s cry with His presence and that is where we find His love is deeper than we ever imagined.
