Who are you?

Ok yes, Amelie looks hilarious in this picture but that isn't the point.
I have started quilting. It is a long but peaceful process that I am really enjoying. I am learning that the interests I have flow out to my children. They may not become fashion designers or teachers but a little bit of me pours out onto them. What do I do in my life that they can follow? What accomplishments can I share? I believe the most important is the love of learning. I am constantly learning. I love to read. I love to learn new things. Now this does not mean I am an adventurous person by any means. You would not catch me on a roller coaster or on the top of a building for that matter. You will see me however, sitting enthralled in a book. Researching on the computer. Reading my bible. Questioning things and finding answers. Laughing. Crying. Coaching for Special Olympics. Helping others in need. Being courteous. Yelling. Frustrated. Calm. Content. What do you portray to your children? They are watching.
