About Short Girl

My husband, before he was my husband, once described me as, "that spunky short girl from New York." That still makes me smile. Now I am still short, call the mid-west home (even though my heart still occasionally longs for the grape country of Western New York), and certainly hope I have retained some of my spunk! 
I am a woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, teacher, music-maker, grace-embracer, Jesus follower and my name is Jennifer. (I am not Jenny, unless you knew me when I was three, then you are grandfathered into that special group to whom I will always be "Jenny"). 
I am kind of short (no comments). I love a good story, a deep conversation, a beautiful piece of music, dark chocolate, and laughing til I cry. I adore children and my heart aches for hurting children. I love to get lost in a good book or get a little tipsy while sipping just one glass of wine with the love of my life. (I am short - it doesn't take much.)  My "Truth-In-Love" friend, calls me Jennifer-Of-Many-Words.  (Is that better than Dances-With-Wolves?) I do love words - words in stories and songs, prayers and pleadings, and since words run around in circles in my head all day, I've decided to start writing them  
I'm a short girl with a story and a song and if you would like to follow along, then I'd love to have you join the story.

  1. The picture of you too brings back many sweet memories of not so long ago!!! {We all needed to have waxed that night!}
    Love you, your heart and your spunkiness!!

    1. It was the perfect picture for the first post! I miss you, friend.
