The Book of Me - Prompt 1

The Book of Me, Written by You

Prompt 1

 Those of you that know me, know that I am a much better "Story Teller", than a Story Writer. So, over the next few months, I am going to try something new by participating in a writing group called The Book Of Me (Written by You).

This group has been created by Julie Goucher of the Anglers Rest blog and she will provide weekly prompts to stimulate our writing.  
So here is the first prompt Who Are You? This is a recognized psychological test. Ask yourself the question 20 times – Who are You? Each time you should give yourself a different answer. The purpose is to see how you view yourself. It is alright if you come up with more than 20, but you need to find at least 20.
I am Diana - a child of God, wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, great aunt, cousin;
I am a soon to be Grandma;

I am a caregiver; and will always be "Daddy's Little Girl";
I am a Blue Star Mom x 3; two of my daughters, and son-in-law are in the military;
I am a cross-stitcher, quilter, and fiber artist;
 I am a Volunteer;

I am a Bluegrass music aficionado;

I am a workaholic - plumber, electrician, handyman, manager of a family business;
I am an historic cemetery preserver; 

I am a local politician and elected County Councilwoman;

I am a researcher, archivist, family history detective, county historian, county genealogist, and all around history geek;

I am a social media addict!  Facebbok, Second Life, and anything to do with Genealogy!

I am a Storyteller, a listener, and a reader; 

I am a perfectionist Procrastinator; (which is why this is being posted LATE, nothing is ever Perfect enough, so I need to learn to 'get over it' and just DO IT!)

I am ME!
