I am 33 and a stay at home mom in Minnesota. I have northern and southern roots, dad from SC and mom from IN. I am just your average Hoosier Hillbilly, or Yankee Redneck :D
I am married with 3 boys age 10, 9 and 3, I home school the boys. I am a simple person, but with complex emotions and feelings. I love to laugh and joke, it makes life easier. I am a convert Muslim, been 11 years now. Ummmmm, not much else about me that is interesting enough to share lol.
I have plantar fasciitis so stretches like this something I do daily. May 21, 2015 at 16:48 UTC
I am a stay at home mom and I homeschool my kids. So I give most my time to my kids, the rest go to my husband and house. When I can I try and help others out, like maybe a friend in need or something. I know this may sound selfish but I think I deserve to give myself some "gift of time" May 21, 2015 at 14:03 UTC
Unless we are eating, we keep all our food in the kitchen. Only exception is I keep some crackers by my night stand. I get upset stomach at night sometimes, so keeping a few crackers close by really helps. The only other thing is in the entry way I have a couple glass containers I put snacks in when we have company, like maybe some candy or nuts. But besides that all food is kept in the kitchen.

I have so many dreams and goals it's hard to narrow it down to one dream and pick one picture for it.
The first thing that came to my mind was doing hajj(Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca). That is a dream and a major goal that one day I will be able to do, God willing. But in order to do that I need the money to do it and better health.
Next I would say moving to Egypt. I love it here in the USA, but it's not always easy for a Muslim to live here. Don't get me wrong, this is a great country, but for people who are different then what people consider the "norm" it can be a bit harder. Egypt is far from perfect, especially with the turmoil going on there now, but I would be more accepted there then I am here in the USA. And I would have family, my family here is not much, especially sense I became Muslim. My family in Egypt is actually my husbands family, but the way they treat me you would think I am born to them. Me and the kids really need that in our lives right now. But in order to get there we would need the money, and I would like to have better health before I go.
Another goal is to be a better Muslim, my faith has been lacking a lot lately. Money could help as I would have the money to take the classes I want here at the Islamic University. I could buy the books I want, some very nice ones I have had my eye one for some time, I think they would help me. Also better health would help me worship more. For example in prayer, it's hard for me to do some of the movies, like prostration. Islam makes things easy on us so I am excused from a lot of things, but it changes how one feels sometimes. I can't fast, fasting is good for the soul. And many other actions that my health limits me in many acts of worship that could greatly improve my faith.
I could go on and on about more dreams and goals, but in order to do most of them I would need money and better health. Money is not a dream or a goal to me, it's just what is needed to live by. I have never been a person who desires money, I just need enough to live by and yes God willing a little more to make life a little comfortable. That leaves my health, all my dreams and goals I have in life depends on my health. So I guess my ultimate goal and biggest dream is to have better health. The picture I would choose for that is a nice juicy sweet apple.
Why you ask? Well an apple a day keeps the doctor away lol. But for real, to me it represents the simple things in life, even an apple, can keep one health. I have health problems that an apple per say can't fix, but there are many simple change I can make that could make a major impact. Like maybe eating an apple for a snack instead of a candy bar.
God knows best and only He can help me achieve any of these goals and dreams. May 18, 2015 at 18:09 UTC
