What do I like about myself?

I saw this meme on Rachel's blog.  She tagged Sara with it, which of course is not me but it is my name (spelled the same way even) and I am going to pretend she tagged me and try it out!!! So often, we focus on the things we don't like about ourselves and it is sometimes hard to think about what we do like....why is that?  

Here are the rules:

Tell everyone three things you like about yourself.
Tag three people to play along.
Go on in peace.

OK. Here goes. Three things I like about myself.

1.  I am a very social and outgoing person.  I can be friends with just about anyone.  In my mind, the more people the better the party!  This has made moving (we have moved 4 times) much easier for me.  It is also a great trait to have as a pastor's wife!  

2.  I am not a neat freak.  I can walk over a stack of clothes if I don't have time to take care of them, I can leave dishes in the sink over night if I'm too tired to wash them and it doesn't bother me to have people come over to visit if my house is a mess.  Don't get me wrong, I like a clean house, but it doesn't keep me from the things I love if it is not.

3.  I love traditions and have instilled that love in my children.  I think this will have to be a future blog.  I have many traditions, especially at Christmas, and they have really blessed our family over the years.  It is so wonderful to see my daughter carrying out some of our traditions even at college!

So, there you have it, 3 things I like about myself.  I will tag:

Have a great Saturday everyone!!!

I would love to hear more about your Christmas traditions, if you don't mind sharing them. My older one is getting to the point where she understands more about Christmas, and I want to create the best memories possible with her.

I like those things about you too! I would love to hear more about your traditions...please do share!

Thanks for the tag. I will get to it on Tuesday or Wednesday. I am struggling a bit with coming up with things because when you say things you like about yourself people tend to think you are cocky or prideful. I guess I will just have to get over it and do it!

Thanks for the tag, I will do it sometime this week.

Hey I'm that Sara! I have noticed you follow me now...
Curious, most Sara's I meet spell it with an H. I am not Sara-HA. I am SaRA. Actually , I'm Sara Kay. Love your post. I am not a neat freak either. My mother is, she thinks a clean house is godliness...I try to tell her it's not a free pass to heaven. She spends HOURS cleaning, when life is passing her by. SO that example never stuck, thank goodness. I love my vacuum, but I frequently give it the day off. Oh and I don't do dishes. Hubby does. That was in the vows...He does dishes. Mother was too over the top with how she made us do them that I simply can't. When I was single I used paper plates and bowls and plastic silverware. I got TWO sets of dishes for wedding gifts...everyday ones and christmas ones. And Hubby does them all. OH I love him! I'd like to hear more about your traditions dear lady. PS I am a terrible speller, please forgive me.
