Thankful Thursday: 10 Things You Don't Know About Me!

1. I'm very short.......... 5' 1" and a 1/
So this must mean I'm not really chubby - just short!!!!!!!!!

2. I still love my ex husband... I know... weird - huh?
in a Godly love and as the Father of my children and Papa to my new Grand babies!
Sooooo - my salvation prayer for him is very dear to my heart as he is a huge
influence in my Son's life!

3. I love to barrel race horses! At age 47 and a bad back - I can't race them any
longer - but I still love doing it and watching my Dad (who is 70) still runs
them! AMAZING......................

4. I was blessed with two amazing children that I love dearly... Son and Daughter.
They have blessed me with a Grand Daughter and two little men!!!!!!! Nana's
bundles of joy!!!

5. I do not like to SHOP.... crazy, huh?

6. I was named after my Aunts... Polly (which is where Holly came from) and
Gertrude Rebecca (which is my middle name - Rebecca).....

7. I miss my Momma with all of my heart. We lost her 12 years ago..... Amazing

8. I enjoy the beach and SUNSHINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Would love to retire to Colorado
or anywhere that the sun shines most days!

9. I'm fearful of ever getting married again... Its a desire of my heart... BUT
I have a fear of it not working out once again.... Still growing in that area.

10. I finally love the Lord FIRST! Amen............

I of course love the family of God as well............ Many of you woman have blessed my heart in great ways. I found Lynn at unequally yoked marriage a few years back and she encouraged me to join a study! Blessed and healed my heart in many ways! Thanks again Lynn for reaching out and caring.... Love ya girl....




  1. This is a great list. I hate to shop, too. That's not weird -- I bet there is more of us than we know. And, as for that sunshine, come to California. If the sun is not out, we go back to bed, convinced that we must have gotten up too early and it is still night.

  2. I think I'll do this as well today, instead of my 5 things to be thankful for!
    Thank you!

  3. Love your blog, and your list! I wish I hated to shop, lol! Thanks for allowing us to get to know you. Have a blessed TT. :)

  4. Girl,

    Loved your list and your authentic and real heart. You and I are sisters forever. BTW, I don't like to shop either. I want to buy. Go in buy., leave. That is me.

    Hugging you my friend. Happy TT. Praising the Lord.

  5. I'm with you, Holly. I do not like to shop. When I absolutely have to shop, I go, get what I need, and get out of the store as quickly as possible.

    Having said that, I could spend hours in a book store But that's a different story. :)

  6. I'm not fond of shopping in stores but I certainly love online shopping.
    I'm a new follower.

  7. Hey...just had to add that I don't like to shop either! Wow..there's a lot of us gals out here that don't fit that "stereo-type." I especially don't like to get in the Christmas-shopping-mayhem...around here, the traffic is just HORRIBLE!
