Meeting Me


Imagine you are meeting someone for the first time. You want to tell them about yourself.  Instead of reciting a laundry list of what you do or where you're from, please give us a scene from your life that best illustrates your true self.  Word limit is 600.

That's fascinating, PJ.....I mean JP!! Very interesting!

Your paragraph about the man with MS struck a chord with me. My son was diagnosed 3 years ago, but has not had another "episode". I give thanks to the Lord everyday for that and pray that it's His will for it to remain in remission.

Thanks for this insight into your work-out time. Sounds like you're a great help and inspiration to everyone there!

I think they think you're the friendliest person at the gym (oh, and of course they also think I wish I had her biceps!) :-)

Sandra said...

sounds to me like God gave you the gift of Mercy and a dose of Service thrown in.

They think you are the nicest, friendliest person they have ever met!

They think "I want whatever she's on!" You seem to have boundless energy, zest for life, and a desire to help and meet all that come into your circle. :)

Honey, they think you are an angle. A knight in shining armor. You took the time to ask questions and help. I LOVE this post!

Is it random that this post has me all choked up? Because this post has me all choked up and I'm not exactly sure why.

Even though this is my first time "meeting" you, I'd say you're probably one of the friendliest people those people have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

I think the first thing they think when they meet you is, 'what a nice person, how sweet she is,' then the second thing they think, whether they realize it or not, is what an affect you've had on them. I bet they go about their business of the day a little 'lighter' and more giving of themselves. You're one of a kind JP, and I for one am glad to know you.

Judging from this I would say you are the sweetest, most helpful person in the gym. Sounds like a nice way to spend a couple of hours!

Denelle @CaitsConcepts said...

How sad when you described the elderly man who would rather go by the wrong name for so long just to have someone say hello! I'm sure people think you a generous, warm-hearted and very caring person - from the sounds of it, they'd be right!

After reading this, I'm sorry you are at the other end of the country, or I'd come and visit you. I know I would be welcome, just like that. That's what this story told me. I have loved your writing and your story telling, but now I know so much more. You did a great job.--Inger

It's nice, but not surprising that I found out you are truly an angel. You're just there for people and a good friend. Sandie

Kristy said...

You care about people. That is apparent! Good post!

CDG said...

They must want a map of your workout, and an ounce of your good spirits.

From that glimpse, I wish you'd been at my gym. I might have stuck around longer.

I think they love you!!! You sound absolutely delightful. Such friendliness seems rare these days. Your post is like the anti-version of mine!

I almost teared up reading this JP. You know the last couple of days, I have been spending with little kids who come from a lower economic background. And today they were not kept circling me asking me to stay back with and come back tomorrow to play with them. One of them, little too cute, she asked me, "Mam, what do you apply on your body. You smell so nice." I couldn't help but smile... I kept of thinking my day while reading this post. Lovely read.

Renee said...

This is lovely. How much you seem to enjoy this time you spend.
And these people must think you are the sweetest person they have met.

Jenna said...

This was what struck me, what Sandra said...

"sounds to me like God gave you the gift of Mercy and a dose of Service thrown in."

I think they think you care, that you listen, that you want to do what you can to ease burdens for people.

I really enjoyed learning more about you!

I would think you are one of the sweetest people I have ever met! The world needs more people like you!

I think you are well loved over here. Glad I stopped over.
