I’m a H.O.T. (Honest, Open & Transparent) person. Sometimes it’s not a great quality because I tend to share TMI (Too Much Information) and sometimes I fear I come across as too blunt or potentially harsh. I also laugh at myself frequently. I’m a klutz. I’ve accidentally stabbed myself with a meat fork while walking to a grill. I’ve walked directly into metal door frames that separate two glass doors. The list goes on and on with all the injuries and embarrassment I’ve endured due to my klutziness.
I’m a peculiar person – I like loops. When I run errands or go somewhere I like to make a loop. For some reason, it bothers me to back track. It’s the same in stores, I write my list in the order of the store because I don’t want to back track. When stores change their layout’s it really bothers me. My exercise of choice is walking. I have several walking loops. I have my 3-mile loop, 4-mile loop and 5-mile loop. Depending on the day I go on one of these loops. Last week I was on my 5-mile loop. This loop is a beautiful loop with a perfect combination of tranquil neighborhoods and nature. On about mile three, nature called. I hoped and thought I could surely hold it, however, my body wasn’t getting the message that I wanted to make it home to go. Side note, I’m a princess when it comes to toilet paper. I like Charmin! In Cameroon there wasn’t Charmin, but I did find toilet paper that passed my softness test and it was expensive, but in my mind money well spent. Here I am in the middle of my walk, in nature by a small creek and I’ve got to go. I was trying to convince myself I just couldn’t go in the woods because I didn’t have toilet paper. As I’m slowly walking at this point contemplating what to do, I saw a strand of toilet paper. This strand was long, it was clean (it looked like remnants from someone tee peeing a tree), it was dry – no dew and it was Charmin. Thank you, Lord for providing even the simplest, yet necessary things in my life.
